Latest TV picks confirmed
By Mark Stevens
Exeter Chiefs are set for more air time on BT Sport with the confirmation today of the latest TV picks announced by Premiership Rugby.
Kick-off dates and times have now been confirmed for Rounds 14-17 in this season’s competition - two of which are set to be screened live.
Exeter’s trip to the Ricoh Arena to face Wasps in Round 15 is the first of those televised dates and will now take place on Sunday, February 18 at 3pm, while the other TV clash will be the visit of Saracens to Sandy Park in Round 17, which will take place on Saturday, March 3 (3pm).
Alongside these fixtures, it has been confirmed that Exeter’s home games against Worcester Warriors (Saturday, February 10) and Northampton Saints (Saturday, February 24) will now both kick-off at 2pm. This decision has been made to avoid clashes with England’s Six Nations fixtures being staged the same day.
Meanwhile, the final two rounds of the Anglo-Welsh Cup have also been decided this week.
The Chiefs, who lead their pool after victories over Northampton Saints and the Scarlets, will travel to Worcester Warriors on Saturday, January 27 (3pm) in Round Three, before playing host to Saracens in their final pool fixture on Saturday, February 3 (3pm).
