Premiership rugby today released the fixture list for the 2017/18 season. The first weekend is set to be a tantalising one with several big games.
Gloucester vs Exeter (Friday 1st September)
Newcastle vs Worcester (Friday 1st September)
Wasps vs Sale Sharks (Saturday 2nd September)
Leicester Tigers vs Bath (Sunday 3rd September)
Saracens vs Northampton (Saturday 2nd September)
Harlequins vs London Irish (Saturday 2nd September)
The Leicester Tigers vs Bath match is arguably the biggest fixture of the weekend with particular interest being paid to the fly-half’s of both sides. Freddie Burns moved to Bath at the end of last season from Leicester, with George Ford going in the opposite direction.
