PREVIEW: PREMIERSHIP, ROUND SEVEN
BACK WITH A VENGEANCE: AFTER AN INTRIGUING OPENING TWO ROUNDS OF EUROPEAN ACTION, THE PREMIERSHIP RETURNS WITH A BANG AS THE EXCITING 2017/18 CAMPAIGN GETS BACK UNDERWAY.
And what a mouth-watering prospect we have in store to welcome everyone back with Sunday marking the first West Country derby of the season as Bath Rugby welcome local rivals Gloucester Rugby to The Rec.
It is a fixture that Bath has enjoyed more often than not in recent years, having lost just one of their last ten Premiership Rugby encounters with the Cherry & Whites, while they have also won their last four matches in all competitions.
Sunday also sees fourth-placed Newcastle Falcons host sixth-placed Leicester Tigers, while the action kicks off on Friday night as Sale Sharks welcome an Exeter Chiefs side to the AJ Bell Stadium following the defending Premiership Rugby champions beating Montpellier 27-24 in France.
