Rugby union fans have three live Aviva Premiership games to look forward to this weekend on BT Sport, including Harlequins v Leicester Tigers.

An improving Leicester travel to the Twickenham Stoop buoyed by a 17-8 home win against second-place Bath Rugby at Welford Road.

The result means the Tigers are now within striking distance of the top four, despite having experienced a miserable start to the season.

Harlequins - who are six points behind their opponents in eighth place - won away at London Welsh 24-13 last time out.

This came after a narrow 30-25 defeat against the Aviva Premiership leaders Northampton Saints in their final game of 2014.

BT Sport subscribers can see how Quins fare against Leicester at 3:15pm on Saturday January 10th.

There are two other games live on the pay-TV service this weekend, starting with a Friday night clash between Gloucester Rugby and Saracens (kick-off 7:45pm).

The home side - who claimed a 26-25 win away at Exeter last Saturday - are currently ninth in the table with 25 points from 12 games.

Saracens - victors at home to London Irish at the weekend - are competing at the right end of the table. They lie third, ten points behind Northampton and four behind Bath.

Sunday afternoon's televised Aviva Premiership game involves two struggling sides: Newcastle Falcons and London Welsh.

Both lost again at the weekend, with the Falcons beaten 39-31 by the leaders Northampton and the Exiles losing at home to Harlequins.

Rock-bottom London Welsh still only have a solitary point to their name this season, but will be hopeful of adding to their tally against Newcastle.

The game kicks off at 2pm on Sunday January 11th, and will be shown live on BT Sport 1.
