Leicester Tigers will learn the identity of their opponents on the Under-18 Academy League Finals Day following the last round of fixtures in the southern conference this weekend.

Already sure of top spot in the northern section with an unbeaten record, Tigers are defending the trophy won for the first time last season.

In the southern conference, there are four teams separated by just four points going into their league round this weekend.

Bath currently head the table on 20 points, the same total as second-placed Gloucester who reached the final last year. Harlequins are in third (17 points), with London Irish one place and one point further back.

With home advantage, Bath face Irish on Saturday, while Gloucester go to Exeter Chiefs. Harlequins were due to conclude their programme at Exeter last weekend in a fixture which was postponed.

Finals Day is at Allianz Park, home of Saracens, on Sunday, February 17 with play-offs between the first, second and third-placed teams in each section.
