Round two sees Alex Sanderson’s team hit the road for the first time as they travel to last season’s beaten semi-finalists, Leicester Tigers, on Saturday, October 21 (KO 1505, live on TNT Sports).
And that’s followed up by another testing away assignment as we travel to the south-west to face Exeter Chiefs in round three (Saturday, October 28, KO 1500).
November kicks off with a home game under the Friday night lights as Gloucester visit the Salford Stadium (Friday, November 3, KO 1945, live on TNT Sports).

Up first is the battle of the north as Newcastle Falcons make the trip across the Pennines (Friday, November 17, KO 1945).
That’s followed by the visit of Bath the following Friday (November 24, KO 1945).
The Friday night theme continues into December as we take on Harlequins at The Stoop in round eight on December 1 (KO 1945), before attention turns to the Heineken Champions Cup, and the visit of French Top 14 side Stade Francais (Sunday, December 10, KO 1300, live on TNT Sports/ITV).
A mouth-watering trip to Dublin to face Leinster follows the week after (Saturday, December 16, KO 1730, live on RTE/TNT).
