But what matches should you be looking out for in the Premiership this weekend?

Saracens vs Bath

Storming to the top of the Premiership table, pre-season favourites Saracens have enjoyed a perfect start to the season, winning each of their first four outings.

Top of the scoring charts in the Premiership, Saracens have scored 156 points from their opening four matches, while only shipping 98 in the opposite direction.

As for Bath, they are in need of a victory, with the team from Somerset having lost all five matches this season, conceding a league-high 175 points in that time.

Only the expelled Worcester Warriors are below them in the fledgling table, with Bath’s fortunes set to worsen against high-flying Saracens this weekend.

Sale Sharks vs London Irish

Much like Saracens, Sale Sharks have also won their opening four matches and only trail the leaders by one point in the table.

An imperious start, the Sharks will be eyeing up a fifth triumph when they take on a struggling London Irish side on Friday evening.

While they may have only played three times, London Irish have failed to flatter so far, with last weekend’s victory over bottom-placed Bath their only victory this term.

April 2015 was the last time London Irish beat Sale Sharks, with another bruising evening expected for the Exiles this weekend.

Harlequins vs Leicester Tigers

It hasn’t been the start to the season Leicester Tigers would’ve been hoping for, with last season’s Premiership winners having slipped to three defeats from their opening five matches.

Victories over Newcastle Falcons and Northampton Saints had looked to have helped Leicester turn a corner, but back-to-back defeats in recent weeks has seen them slump back down to eighth.

For Harlequins, two victories and two defeats represent a solid start to the campaign, but there still remains work to do for the Quins.
Two victories from their last three against Harlequins will inspire the Tigers, who are in need of a result to kick-start their campaign.
