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.
