After discussions between ourselves and Premiership Rugby, the decision has been made to move the home fixture against Harlequins - due to take place on Saturday 24th November - to the evening of Friday 23rd, kick-off 19.45.
This fixture has been moved to avoid it clashing with the international matches taking place that day, as well as to allow the players an extra 24 hours to prepare for the clash versus Leicester the following Saturday.
We are sorry for any inconvenience caused and hope that this is the last time we will have to move a fixture from a Saturday afternoon to a Friday night. We know Saturdays are the preferred matchdays, and we are working hard with Premiership Rugby to minimise any further movement of fixtures.
We look forward to seeing you at the Rec and enjoying a night under the lights!
