Gloucester v Leicester: How to watch, TV channel, kick-off time, head-to-head stats and team news

English rugby union's first domestic piece of silverware will be handed out on Friday, as Gloucester host Leicester in the final of the Premiership Rugby Cup.

The annual festival that is the Six Nations' final day, 'Super Saturday', is also on the agenda and the clash at Kingsholm could be a fitting curtain-raiser.

Gloucester v Leicester stats and head-to-head record (H2H)

Gloucester have won their last four games, stretching back to a run of three victories in January, two in the Challenge Cup before beating Sale in the Premiership.

They then resumed their Premiership Rugby Cup campaign with a 17-14 semi-final victory over Exeter Chiefs.

Leicester lost both of their final pool games in the Champions Cup but still managed to battle through to the knockout rounds.

They signed off for the Six Nations with a 20-19 victory over Harlequins before resuming with a 29-21 win in the semi-finals of this competition by beating Championship pacesetters Ealing Trailfinders.

The pair's sole meeting this season came in November last year, with Ollie Hassell-Collins running in two tries as Leicester won 38-20, his club's seventh straight victory against Friday's opponents.

Gloucester team news

Italy's Stephen Varney and Scotland's Adam Hastings are away at the Six Nations and the Cherry and Whites are again likely to go with a youthful side.

George Barton should start at fly-half and will be behind a decent pack involving Lewis Ludlow and Zach Mercer.

Leicester team news

Leicester will also be impacted by Six Nations call-ups, with Dan Cole, Joe Heyes, George Martin, Ollie Chessum and Freddie Steward away with England, while Scotland's Will Hurd and Wales' Tommy Reffell are also absent.

Hassell-Collins should start on the left wing, while the experience of fellow backs Jamie Shillcock, Matt Scott, and Mike Brown should also help the Tigers.
