Wasps take on Bears in opener

Coventry Editorial 29th Sep, 2020   0

WASPS Rugby’s 2020/21 Premiership campaign will get away with a home meeting against Bristol Bears on Sunday, November 22 (1pm).

After that, a trip to Gloucester Rugby’s Kingsholm Stadium on Saturday, November 28 (3pm), before returning to home territory for the final league fixture before Christmas against Newcastle Falcons on Saturday, December 5 (3pm) – prior to the start of the European Champions Cup.

The opening clash at Ricoh Arena is one of four fixtures set to be broadcast on BT Sport so far, with the first home game of the New Year against Exeter Chiefs (January 2) falling in between trips to Sale Sharks (December 27) and Bath Rugby (January 8).

Wasps then bring their regular season to an end on Saturday, June 12 at home to Leicester Tigers.

Further televised games are to be announced in due course as the season progresses, in what head coach Lee Blackett will hope is a successful season in his first full campaign in charge.
