BT Sport to show final round deciders
By Mark Stevens
A gripping Gallagher Premiership Rugby regular season comes to a rousing crescendo on Saturday, with two unmissable final day games set for airtime.
With tension high and plenty still up for grabs, including top spot, semi-final places and Heineken Champions Cup qualification, all six games will kick-off at 4pm on Saturday.
The choice awaiting viewers in front of the box is between leaders Exeter Chiefs and Northampton Saints, who know victory over the Devonians will not only seal them a place in next week's semi-final, but also secure a rare league double over their hosts.
In the other televised clash, Paul Gustard's Harlequins head to age-old rivals Wasps looking to claim the victory that could well ease them into the last four.
The drama will also be ramped up in the other non-televised games this weekend, as Saracens continue their hunt for an impressive double with a trip to Worcester Warriors, while a host of sides battle it out for European qualification.
Indeed, four teams will slug it out for the last Champions Cup berth. Bath are the current incumbents, but Sale Sharks, Wasps and Bristol Bears all harbour realistic expectations of making it into the showpiece competition.
For a full rundown of every key moment from the regular season finale, tune in to Channel 5 at 7pm on Monday for the Gallagher Premiership Rugby highlights show.
