The new Aviva Premiership season has only just got underway, but the big games are already coming thick and fast on BT Sport.

Two of English rugby's top clubs - Harlequins and Saracens - lock horns in a London derby this Friday evening (September 12th), in a game to be broadcast live on the pay-TV service (kick-off 7:45pm).

harlequins vs saracens

Quins will be eager to get one over their north London opponents, who beat them 31-17 in the Aviva Premiership semi-finals back in May.

Both clubs started the 2014-15 campaign with a victory last weekend, with Quins winning 20-15 against London Irish and Saracens seeing off Wasps 34-28.

TV viewers were able to watch both of these Week 1 matches - played at Twickenham as part of a special-double header - live on BT Sport.

Leicester Tigers - the other beaten semi-finalist in 2013-14 - are also in televised action this weekend, as they travel south-west to take on Exeter Chiefs (Saturday September 13th, kick-off 3:15pm).

Leicester claimed a bonus-point win against Newcastle Falcons in their opening game, triumphing 36-17 at Welford Road.

Exeter also got off to the best possible start, trouncing newly-promoted London Welsh 52-0 away at the Kassam Stadium in Oxford.

The third televised game sees the defending champions Northampton Saints travel to Wasps for a 2pm kick-off on Sunday September 14th.

Northampton trounced Gloucester 53-6 at Franklin's Gardens last Friday, continuing their fine form from the last campaign.

Wasps started well in their defeat to Saracens, but crumbled in the latter stages after looking on course for victory.

Dai Young's side face another difficult encounter against Northampton, but will hope home advantage plays in their favour.
