Prem web has this as a Friday night 15/9 7:45 ko - what's correct before travel arrangements made

I see what you mean, Worcesters own website and Premiership Rugby have it as 7.45pm on friday 15th, but Chiefs website and the Chiefs games flyer have it as 3pm Saturday 16th.

Do they normally have two friday night games?, as Saints V Bath is also showing as 7.45pm friday 15th.

I would be mightily peed off at another Friday night trip up the M5 for second away trip in a row so hope it isn't true personally.
I appreciate the players like them as they get a weekend off afterwards but it isn't supporter friendly.

Not sure the coaches like the short turn around though

I tweeted Prem Rugby to ask them to clarify the fixture

I asked our ticket office who replied

''Dates are not 100% confirmed currently, at this stage we are only provided with the weekend the match will fall on and not the exact date/time. We would recommend keeping an eye on the websites and social media pages for updates

Kind regards''

The Prem website says the first 10 rounds are finalised so as to help planning for fans intending to go to matches, and that shows a 7.45 evening kick off. I'm surprised therefore that there's confusion - which was what they were trying to avoid. Worcester is one of the few away games I go to and I make the weekend of it, so it doesn't matter all that much to me as I'll be there Friday evening or Saturday afternoon anyway!

This is not a helpful response. Presumable the Prem official site has been party to the TV and Clubs changes for 'finer' detail to appear. Yes I know 'things Change' but a more helpful response would have been to check and confirm the latest rather than refer supporter to other sites and social media (which some do not embrace!

Thanks LMC. That makes 3of our first 5 away games Friday night. Is the Prem getting back at Chiefs for complaining about fixture times in 2016/7? (Sm100)(Sm147)

It's the European ones that Tony complained about.
