To Sunday 3.00pm due to LCFC playing on Saturday afternoon.

"The Leicester Tigers home game against Worcester Warriors in Round 4 of the Gallagher Premiership season is now confirmed as a 3.00pm kick-off on Sunday, September 23.

Premiership Rugby announced the full order of fixtures for the new season last week, with Tigers set to kick off with a trip to Exeter Chiefs before hosting Newcastle Falcons in the opening home game of 2018/19 on Saturday, September 8.

The match against Warriors has been moved for policing and traffic reasons as neighbours Leicester City FC are scheduled to play at home on the Saturday afternoon."

City v Huddersfield on the Saturday.

Hardly likely to be a TV game? (And not on TV according to this.)

So that's one we've moved for them then.

It won't be the last.

Reciprocation may be hard to come by.

Non-existent since they rejoined the Prem isn't it.

Same pattern as previous already got 2 Sunday games moved for TV - it seems for TV only the Saints home game is retained on a Saturday...oddly Sarries and Franchise avoid Friday night home games again...

Sarries landlords (the local authority owners) have a clause in the deal that Sarries cannot play on Friday's.

In the case of shared grounds the Rugby Club have to have an alternative ground available for games where there is a clash.

So why are Sarries not required to have an alternative facilities for Friday games?

Their named alternative always used to be the MK Stadium. Wonder if it still is? Might be Wembley or the London Stadium nowadays?
