BT Sport viewers have three more top-flight rugby union matches to look forward to this weekend, including a huge clash between Saracens and Leicester Tigers.

Sarries - who finished top of the league in 2012-13 - have headed the Aviva Premiership all season, and remain two points clear of second-place Northampton Saints.

Last season's overall champions Leicester have struggled to find their momentum in 2013-14, losing three times already.

However, the side have reached the Premiership final in each of the last nine seasons, so - despite their current mid-table ranking - cannot be written off.

Both teams won last time out in the league, with Saracens beating Sale Sharks 24-19 and Leicester winning 22-17 at Gloucester.

TV viewers can see these two union heavyweights in action at 3:15pm live on BT Sport 1.

The following day, rugby fans have a West Country derby to look forward to, as Gloucester host local rivals Worcester Warriors.

The home side are on a five-match losing streak, but this is nothing compared to Worcester's winless run - which dates back to last season.

Dean Ryan's side - who lost 33-10 at home to Northampton in their last league game - have lost all nine Aviva Premiership matches in the current campaign.

But with local bragging rights at stake, fans can look forward to a fierce contest on BT Sport 1, live at 2pm on Sunday December 22nd.

The weekend's other live game is Sale Sharks v London Irish, which is live on BTSport 1 at 7:45pm on Friday December 20th.

Mid-table Sale will be hoping to bounce back from their defeat to Saracens against second-bottom Irish, who lost 19-12 at home to London Wasps.

The Exiles have only won twice this season in the league, with their last victory coming against Harlequins on October 5th.
