Update on re-arrangement of Bath Rugby vs Sale Sharks

1 February 2016

Following the postponement of the Aviva Premiership Round 9 game between Bath Rugby and Sale Sharks earlier this season, and Sale Sharks’s qualification for the European Rugby Challenge Cup quarter-finals, we can now confirm that the game will be scheduled for Wednesday 13th April, kick-off 19.45. 

The away game against Sale, originally scheduled for Saturday 16th April will then move to Sunday 17th April to allow a four-day turnaround for both teams.

However, should Sale lose their European Rugby Challenge Cup quarter-final against Montpellier on the weekend of the 9th April, the re-arranged Round 9 game between Bath and Sale will be moved to Saturday 23rd April* (European semi-final weekend). This will only be confirmed when the result of the quarter-final is known on the weekend of the 9th April.
