Gallagher Premiership Rugby

The 2022/23 campaign has a lot to live up to after Leicester Tigers emerged victorious from one of the most entertaining Premiership seasons in recent memory.

And this term is already shaping up to be another classic with five-time winners Saracens gunning to avenge their heartbreaking defeat to Tigers at Twickenham.

Elsewhere, can a resurgent Exeter Chiefs challenge at English rugby's top table again, will 2021 winners Harlequins mount another tilt at the title and could Sale end their 16-year wait for a second Premiership crown?

Heineken Champions Cup

All eyes will be on champions La Rochelle as the French giants look to go back-to-back in Europe.

Ronan O'Gara's side claimed their first piece of silverware in the club's history with a hard-fought win over four-time winners Leinster in Marseille.

The upcoming 2022/23 campaign has some added spice with the introduction of southern hemisphere teams for the first time ever as the Bulls, Stormers and Sharks join the competition.

Next season wil once again see 24 teams compete across 71 games for the right to be crowned kings of Europe.

The clubs will be divided into two pools of 12 – Pool A and Pool B – by means of a draw and the tournament will be played over nine weekends with four rounds of matches in the pool stage starting in December.

The eight highest-ranked clubs from each pool will qualify for the knockout stage which will consist of a new two-legged round of 16 tie, quarter-finals, semi-finals and the final at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin on 20 May 2023.
