The rugby season kicks off this weekend

This weekend will see two of Sotic’s major tournament clients, Gallagher Premiership and Guinness PRO14, kick off their new seasons.

Both competitions will host their first rounds of the season this weekend, marking the start of the 2018/19 rugby action.

Gallagher Premiership Rugby kicks off with six compelling matches to start the 22nd Premiership season.

The opening weekend could not be more intriguing with Bath Rugby taking the short journey to Ashton Gate to face newly promoted Bristol Bears in front of a huge crowd and the live BT Sport cameras on Friday evening.

The drama continues to unfold on Saturday with two #TeamSotic clients, Gloucester Rugby and Sale Sharks, taking on Northampton Saints and Harlequins respectively.

Worcester Warriors will face Wasps, while Exeter Chiefs will take on Leicester Tigers.

Round One comes to close on Sunday with defending Champions Saracens on the road at Newcastle Falcons.

The Guinness PRO14 Rugby campaign gets underway this weekend too, with two #TeamSotic clients competing against each other, Cardiff Blues vs reigning champions Leinster Rugby at Cardiff Arms Park tomorrow night.

Ospreys will take on Edinburgh Rugby at home and Zebre Rugby Club welcome South African side Southern Kings to Italy.

Saturday will see Glasgow Warriors take on Connacht Rugby followed by #TeamSotic clients Munster Rugby and Ulster Rugby facing Toyota Cheetahs and Scarlets respectively.
