The start of the 2020-21 Premiership season is imminent with the fixtures having been released.
Round 1 will commence on Friday 20 November with Harlequins hosting Exeter Chiefs and Northampton Saints travelling to AJ Bell Stadium to tackle Sale Sharks.
Saturday 21 November sees a feast of rugby with three games taking place, kicking off with Bath against the newly promoted and optimistic Newcastle Falcons, thereafter follows Leicester vs Gloucester and Worcester Warriors vs London Irish.
The final game of the round will take place on Sunday 22 November when Wasps will host Bristol Bears at the Ricoh Arena.
It will be a clean slate of sorts which will be welcomed by many players and fans alike after the somewhat shambolic 2019-20 tournament which has been terribly disrupted by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Unfortunately, due to international commitments, the England players will miss 11 of the first 14 rounds.
