LONDON Welsh will open their Aviva Premiership campaign with a home match against Exeter Chiefs on Sunday, September 7.

Justin Burnell’s side will be live in front of the BT Sport cameras at the Kassam Stadium as they bid to retain their place in rugby’s elite.

They then face two tough away trips to Bath and Sale, before their next home game is another to be shown live, against Gloucester on Friday, September 26.

Their third home game is against Newcastle Falcons on Saturday, October 11 – they are unable to take their regular Sunday slot because the Kassam Stadium is being used to host the Oxford Half Marathon.

Welsh are away to London Irish on Boxing Day, but end with a home match against Saracens in May.
