Bath Rugby will entertain London Wasps in the first home game of the season at the Rec in the Aviva Premiership Rugby 2012/13 season on Saturday 8th September, with a visit from Northampton Saints the weekend after.
The season kicks-off for Gary Gold's men at Sixways as they face Worcester Warriors in the opening round of the Aviva Premiership, with an away trip to London Irish and home tie against Sale Sharks rounding off the opening five rounds.

It's a challenging opening for the Bath squad, who will be striving to put last season behind them and get into the winning habit from the beginning.
Commenting on the release of the fixtures, Gary said: "It's an interesting opening few weeks for us, and one that holds plenty of challenges. We saw last season just how competitive the Aviva Premiership is now, and the standard just keeps getting higher each year.
"We're putting a lot of hard work into pre-season to enable us to hit the ground running, and as a squad we will certainly be doing all we can to make a positive start to the league season, to set us up with some winning momentum throughout."
The TV broadcast picks for Rounds One to Eight will be confirmed on Wednesday 11th July, and where possible we will keep all our home games to a Saturday, 14.15 kick-off. Changes later in the season may happen though, and we'll make you aware of these as soon as possible.
Fixtures for the Amlin Challenge Cup and LV= Cup will be announced in due course.
