Premiership Rugby have confirmed kick-off details for games in Round 16 and 17 of the season, including the Leicester Tigers home derby against Northampton Saints next month.

Tigers travel to defending league champions Exeter Chiefs this Saturday and then host Newcastle Falcons before the switch to European action at the start of April. They then return to league duties with a trip to Bath Rugby in Round 16 in a game now confirmed for 3.00pm kick-off on Sunday, April 18.

Derby day follows on Saturday, April 24 (3.00pm) when Tigers host Saints in the first meeting of the season due to cancellation of the scheduled trip to Franklin’s Gardens in January.

In revealing their updated fixture details today, Premiership Rugby also announced that the match between Newcastle Falcons and Bristol Bears on April 17 and London Irish versus Harlequins a week later have been chosen for simultaneous broadcast on both Channel 5 and BT Sport.

All 12 matches in Rounds 16 and 17 will be shown live on BT Sport as supporters are still unable to attend matchdays.

Dates and times of games in European competitions during April will be confirmed soon.
