Fixtures announced for 2019 Premiership Rugby 7s

Bristol Bears will take on Harlequins and hosts, Northampton Saints in the pool stage of the Premiership Rugby 7s.

Franklin’s Gardens plays host to the ‘Olympic-style’ version of the tournament for a third season in a row, with the action taking place on Friday, September 13th and Saturday, September 14th. 

Bristol have been drawn Pool C and will take on Saints at 6.38pm and Quins at 8.08pm on day one of the tournament.

All 12 Gallagher Premiership Rugby sides will face off over two days of competition in Northampton – with big hits, slick offloads and lightning-fast pace all guaranteed.

The Premiership Rugby 7s offers the chance to see the next generation of rugby stars go toe-to-toe, with talented youngsters from all 12 clubs mixing it with seasoned campaigners ahead of the new season in a fiesta of free-flowing rugby.

After the pools are completed on Friday evening, Saturday’s matches will start at 2.30pm and see the top eight ranked teams contest the Cup quarter-finals.

Meanwhile, the remaining four sides will head into the Plate semi-finals as they bid to lift some early-season silverware before the tournament concludes at 6.45pm.

Rugby won’t be the only attraction over the weekend with the Gardens becoming a hub of activity, opening its gates from 4.30pm until 10pm on the Friday and 1pm until 8.45pm on the Saturday.
