Where To Watch Leinster Vs Bath? TV Details For The Aviva Heineken Cup Clash

Where To Watch Leinster Vs Bath? TV Details For The Aviva Heineken Cup Clash

Leinster huffed and puffed at the Rec but eventually stole away with a win - such are their vertiginous standards that they will expect a much-improved performance at the annual, Yuletide Aviva clash this weekend. If you aren't going to fly your health-and-safety-consistent Leinster flag with Bath-defying impunity, then read on for details on where to watch Leinster vs Bath.

Where to watch Leinster vs Bath? 

The game is live on BT Sport 1 on Saturday evening. The game kicks off at 5.30pm; coverage starts half an hour prior at 5pm.

What are the stakes? 

Bath could do with a result - they lie third in the pool, five points behind Leinster and seven off top spot, which currently belongs to Toulouse. Leinster, meanwhile, are second, two off the relentless Toulouse, meaning they still have some work to do. Hopes that they will defend their title will be greatly helped by having home advantage in the quarter-finals and semi-finals. Stuart Lancaster this week forecast that Leinster will need a minimum of 18 points to qualify for the knockout stage, so getting as close to that target in their penultimate home game of the pool will be the primary aim on Saturday.

What's Leinster's injury status?

Johnny Sexton limped out of the game at the Rec with a calf injury, but Stuart Lancaster declared himself optimistic that Sexton would be fit. If not, Ross Byrne will step into the breach.

Elsewhere, Jack Conan, Dan Leavy, Jordan Larmour and Rory O’Loughlin all came through last weekend unscathed and are in line to play on Saturday evening. The latter may be picked at centre alongside Garry Ringrose, in place of Noel Reid, who is being linked with a move to Leicester Tigers.

The reason that there is a gap beside Ringrose is because of yet another injury to Robbie Henshaw - he is likely to miss the start of the 2019 Six Nations with a hamstring issue.

A reminder on where to watch Leinster vs Bath - the game is live on Saturday evening on BT Sport 1 at 5pm.
