When is it, what time is the kick-off and on which TV channel is it?

Leicester have secured themselves a semi-final in the Gallagher Premiership after beating Bristol with eight tries, making Chris Ashton the league’s record scorer.

The 35-year-old, who signed with Leicester in February following his release from Worcester, Tom Varndell has made a leap forward in the all-time standings to reach 95 tries and counting.

Leicester head coach Steve Borthwick said: “We all know what a quality player he is.

“What struck me the most is that I played alongside him many years ago and you can’t tell much of a difference.

“I’ve gotten a lot older and the way he goes about his day-to-day activities is pretty much the same – he’s competitive, he trains as hard as everyone else, and that’s always been the way.

“I’ll always remember walking into the gym, and I thought I was in the gym pretty early when I was a player, and he’s already doing a boxing session.

“That’s always stayed with me and that’s what I see in him now; he wants to get better, he wants to get better.”

What happened in 2021?

Harlequins won arguably the greatest Premiership final in history, with a late two-try rally that broke Exeter’s hearts. It hampered a notable rise from Quins, who sacked their head coach in January 2021 and then left a 28-0 rally against Bristol in their semi-final.

  • Leicester 15/8
