Premiership Rugby Statement - January 11
By Mark Stevens
Premiership Rugby can confirm that it will take a two-week, mid-season break after European competitions were temporarily suspended by EPCR.
Premiership Rugby Chief Executive, Darren Childs said: "The welfare of everyone involved in Premiership Rugby is crucial to us and this break in the season gives us the chance to hand some much-needed rest to our hard-working players, management, staff and match officials.
"The Gallagher Premiership Rugby season will return - as scheduled - on Friday, January 29 when Bristol Bears host Bath Rugby live on BT Sport."
Exeter Chiefs will next be in action on Saturday, January 30 when they travel to Sixways to face Worcester Warriors (3pm).
