For the first time since the competition began in 2009, Sky Sports will broadcast two Championship fixtures back-to-back involving the league’s current top four teams.
Doncaster Knights will kick-off the Greene King IPA Championship double-header on Easter Sunday as they host current table toppers Bristol Rugby at 1.45pm. Attention will then turn to Headingley Carnegie as Yorkshire Carnegie take on Bedford Blues in a battle between the current third and fourth placed teams.
But with five rounds between now and Easter weekend and only eleven points separating the top four, it could all change ahead of the Yorkshire double header.
Commenting on the fixtures, Head of Rugby Union at Sky Sports Gus Williamson said:
"We're delighted to broadcast this Greene King IPA Championship Yorkshire double-header on Easter Sunday, traditionally a very busy weekend for watching sport. With all four of the teams that currently occupy the play-off positions in action, it'll be a great opportunity to showcase the competition.
"I'd like to thank the clubs for their cooperation, and particularly to Doncaster for moving the fixture from Saturday to accommodate Sky Sports on what will surely be a fantastic day of Championship rugby”
