Gloucester Christmas derby rescheduled for BT Sport

Warriors’ away clash at local rivals Gloucester Rugby has been moved to Sunday 22 December after being selected to feature live on BT Sport.

The festive fixture will now kick-off at 2pm – a day later than originally scheduled.

It will be the fourth time this season a Warriors game has be screened live on BT Sport after the new channel broadcast the opening weekend encounter at Leicester Tigers and last Friday’s match with Harlequins at Sixways.

November’s home match with Bath Rugby is also set to feature on the channel.

December's clash will see Warriors looking to gain revenge after Gloucester were awarded a last-minute penalty try to sneak a 29-23 victory last season.

The match is also likely to see former Warrior Matt Kvesic go head-to-head with his former side since moving to Kingsholm in the summer.
