Rugby on TV: How to watch both Gallagher Premiership semi-finals

After a bumper weekend of European action, the focus returns back to the Gallagher Premiership semi-finals! 

18 weeks of drama have given us our final four, but it’s still all to play for this weekend. It gets underway on Friday night as Northampton Saints take on defending champions Saracens at Franklin’s Gardens. This is the second successive semi-final between the sides, however the table-topping Saints will be hoping they can atone for last year’s defeat.

The play-offs don’t stop there, as Bath welcome Sale Sharks to the Rec. The West Country outfit were the only side to be in the top four for the entirety of the season, however they face a red-hot Sale team fresh off beating Saracens away. The sides have also beaten each other this season in the Premiership, but van Graan’s men came out with a huge 42-24 win the last time they met.

Here is a full breakdown of how you can watch the Gallagher Premiership semi-finals.
