Rugby union fans have three more Aviva Premiership matches to look forward to this weekend, including a clash between the West Country's top two sides.

Bath Rugby welcome Exeter Chiefs to the idyllic Recreation Ground this Saturday (November 30th, kick-off 3:15pm), looking to make it four league wins a row.

Gary Old's side were in fine form again last weekend, winning 28-5 away at London Wasps at Adams Park.

At the same time, Exeter lost out 16-9 to Saracens - however the Chiefs pushed the league leaders close enough to claim a losing bonus point.

Bath currently sit in third place in the Aviva Premiership with 26 points from eight games, with fifth-place Exeter a further six behind on 22.

Exeter are level on points with sixth-place Leicester Tigers, who are also in action on BT Sport this weekend. The misfiring 2012-13 champions travel west to Gloucester Rugby for a 7:45pm Friday night kick-off.

The Tigers have been disappointing so far in 2013-14, winning just four of their first eight games. However, Richard Cockerill's side returned to winning ways last week with a 20-11 win over London Irish, and will fancy their chance of picking up more points this weekend.

Struggling Gloucester lost again last weekend - Harlequins winning 27-19 at The Stoop - leaving them third-bottom on 12 points after eight games.

Nigel Davies' side have tasted defeat in their last four Aviva Premiership outings, and will be desperate for an improved performance in front of the TV cameras.

Last but not least, Sunday's live game sees Harlequins travel to Newcastle Falcons for a 2:30pm kick-off live on BT Sport 1.

Quins will be looking to pick up where they left off at home to Gloucester, while Newcastle will be looking to erase all memory of last weekend's trip to Northampton.

The Falcons failed to register on the scoresheet in a one-sided 18-0 reverse at Franklin's Gardens, which left them in ninth place in the Aviva Premiership on 13 points.
