Kick-Off changed for Bristol clash
By Mark Stevens
Premiership Rugby have this morning confirmed that Saturday's Gallagher Premiership Round Six clash between Exeter Chiefs and Bristol Bears, set to be played at Sandy Park, will now kick-off at 4:30pm.
Yesterday's announcement that Northampton's clash with Leicester Tigers had been cancelled due to an outbreak of Covid within the Saints squad meant there was a vacant TV slot for host broadcasters BT Sport to fill.
In a re-arrangement of their listings, BT Sport will now show the Newcastle Falcons clash at home to Gloucester at 2pm, after which they will switch their attentions to the top-of-the-table, Westcountry derby between the Chiefs and the Bears.
Both games will be shown live on BT Sport 2.
