Struggling Leicester Tigers face another tough game this Friday (October 10th), as they welcome Harlequins to Welford Road for a 7:45pm kick-off.

BT Sport viewers can see whether the Tigers - Aviva Premiership champions on ten separate occasions - are able to get their 2014-15 season back on track.

Richard Cockerill's side lost again last week, beaten comfortably 33-16 by a resurgent Gloucester, to leave them in tenth place in the table.

Leicester are usually a fixture in the top four by this stage of the campaign, but after five games they have just two wins and ten points to their name.

Harlequins - who beat London Welsh 52-0 last Saturday - lie in sixth at present with 13 points. However, in a tight bunch, they are just two points behind Exeter Chiefs who occupy the fourth play-off spot.

BT Sport subscribers have two other Aviva Premiership encounters to look forward to at the weekend, starting with Northampton Saints v Sale Sharks.

The reigning champions Northampton are again a force to be reckoned with, having won four out of five games to lead the table with 20 points.

They won away at London Irish last time out, with fly-half Stephen Myler kicking 14 points in a 19-12 victory.

Sale Sharks have won only twice this season, but one of those results was against Wasps at the weekend. Bryan Redpath's side ran out 25-14 victors at the AJ Bell Stadium.

BT Sport viewers will be able to see how the Salford-based club fare at Franklin's Gardens, in this 3:15pm kick-off on Saturday October 11th.

The third televised game of the weekend is Wasps v Bath Rugby, which kicks off at 2pm on Sunday October 12th.

Wasps will be eager to get back on track following their disappointing defeat at Sale last time out. The Wycombe-based outfit have mustered just 11 points so far this season.

Bath have been a revelation in 2014-15, playing some wonderful rugby en route to four wins in their first five matches.

A 21-11 victory over Saracens last weekend confirmed their status as genuine title challengers, but Wasps will hope to rain on their parade at Adams Park.
