harlequins vs saracens

Aviva Premiership leaders Saracens are live on BT Sport again this Saturday (September 28th), taking on Harlequins in an eagerly-awaited London derby.

Sarries travel to Quins for this televised game (kick-off 3:15pm), looking to preserve their 100 per cent record in 2013-14.

Mark McCall's side have recorded bonus point victories against London Irish, Gloucester and Bath so far, continuing their fine form from the previous campaign.

Saracens finished top of the Aviva Premiership table in 2012-13, ultimately losing out to Northampton Saints in the play-off semi-finals.

However, Harlequins will be confident of causing an upset at The Stoop, having enjoyed their own bright start to the season.

Conor O'Shea led his troops to a 13-37 win at Worcester last week; the side's second win in three games.

Quins' only reverse so far this season was a 6-13 loss against Northampton in the second round of matches.

Two other games are live on BT Sport this weekend, starting with Northampton Saints v Sale Sharks on Friday September 27th.

Third-place Northampton sit one point above fifth-place Sale, with the two sides each having won twice in the league this season.

Only a Jimmies try bonus in their 38–11 win over Exeter Chiefs separates the teams, with Sale yet to register in that column this season.

The match, to be played at Weedon Road, kicks off at 7:45pm and will be broadcast live on BT Sport 1.

The third live Aviva Premiership match of the weekend is Exeter Chiefs v Leicester Tigers, which is live on BT Sport 1 at 2pm on Sunday September 29th.

Second-place Leicester got back to winning ways with a comfortable 31-6 victory against Newcastle Falcons last Saturday, following a disappointing 27-20 loss at Bath a week earlier.

Exeter are another of the sides with a record of two wins and one defeat in 2013-14, and currently sit in seventh place in the table with eight points from three games.
