Irish fixture confirmed for September 30
By Mark Stevens
Premiership Rugby have today confirmed that Exeter Chiefs will play host to London Irish on Wednesday, September 30 at Sandy Park.
The Round 21 fixture - which club officials are hoping to potentially use as a pilot event to bring a limited number of supporters back into the stadium - will kick-off at 5:30pm.
The game, which will also be screened live on BT Sport Extra 2 and via the BT Sport App, is Exeter’s final home game of the regular Gallagher Premiership season.
Ahead of that game, Round 21 kicks-off on Tuesday, September 22 with one of the League’s iconic matches, Gloucester making the short trip to The Recreation Ground to take on Bath Rugby, kick-off at 5.30pm.
Six days later it re-commences with another historic game as Wasps make the trip to the Twickenham Stoop to face Harlequins on September 28 (7:45pm).
Then, 24 hours later, Northampton Saints tackle Sale Sharks (5:30pm), before the fixtures for that round are completed with the Chiefs entertaining London Irish; Bristol Bears playing host to Leicester Tigers (5:30pm) and Worcester Warriors welcoming Saracens to Sixways (5:30pm).
