There is a top-of-the-table encounter which will include Army representation on Saturday, with Pte Ratu ‘Siva’ Naulago (Yorks) named once again on the wing for Bristol Bears’ trip to Exeter Chiefs in the Premiership.
The teams have identical records at the top of the table, both with four wins and four bonus points from their five matches played, and it is no surprise to see BT Sport have this as one of their live matches this weekend.
Pte Naulago’s first try for his new club helped them to a bonus point win over Newcastle last time out, and the challenging start to his rugby union career continues at the home of the reigning champions.
Kick off at Sandy Park is 16:30 on Saturday with live coverage on BT Sport 2.

This evening (Friday) sees Cpl Lewis Bean (Rifles) make his final appearance in a match squad for Glasgow Warriors in his current loan spell from Northampton.
Cpl Bean’s try at Murrayfield last weekend helped Glasgow earn a losing bonus point against Edinburgh, and they will be wanting to go one better in the return match at Scotstoun, a match you can watch live on Premier Sports 1 from 19:35.
Domestic bragging rights are up for grabs, but getting back onto winning ways is an imperative for Glasgow if they are to get back in touch with the Conference A play-off places.
