Gallagher Premiership final

After a gruelling season and two sensational semi-finals, holders Exeter Chiefs and Harlequins meet in the Gallagher Premiership final at Twickenham on Saturday.

Quins staged a thrilling comeback to beat Bristol Bears after extra time at Ashton Gate, fighting back from 28-0 down at one stage.

In the second semi-final, Exeter beat Sale Sharks in an entertaining encounter at Sandy Park to reach their sixth successive final.

The Chiefs have won both matches against Quins this season, running out 33-3 winners at the Stoop in November four months before they completed the double courtesy of a hard-fought 21-20 win in Devon.

Premiership Player of the Season and top try scorer Sam Simmonds will be looking to finish a remarkable season with another sterling performance at the home of English rugby.

The British and Irish Lion has touched down 20 times for the Chiefs this season and has been the driving force in their title defence.

Quins will be relying on half-back partners Danny Care and, the Premiership’s top point scorer, Marcus Smith to inspire them to an odds-defying victory. 

Find out who will be crowned champions from 4.30pm on BT Sport 1HD and Ultimate this Saturday.  

Grand Prix of Assen

A week after Marc Marquez secured a first win since recovering from a broken arm in Germany, the MotoGP circus reconvenes in Assen, Netherlands.

“The Cathedral” of motorcycle racing will host the final race before the mid-season break with the next round set for August.

Six-time world champion Marquez made his return this season after sustaining a career-threatening injury last July. It was his first victory since 2019, and his 11th straight career win at the Sachsenring circuit.

“It was hard to concentrate because of all the memories and all the sensations of the past year,” he reflected afterwards.

We’ll build up to the race with full and uninterrupted coverage of the Free Practice and Warm Up sessions. We’ll also, of course, be showing every Moto2 and Moto3 session - including the races - in full.

And after you catch your breath, Chequered Flag will round up the weekend’s talking points with the very best analysis from our pundits and high profile guests with all the action available on BT Sport 2HD throughout the weekend.

UFC Fight Night: Gane vs Volkov

The last show before the trilogy bout between Dustin Poirier and Conor McGregor at UFC 264 is headlined by heavyweights Ciryl Gane and Alexander Volkov in Las Vegas.

Number 3 ranked Frenchman Gane claimed an impressive decision win over Jairzinho Rozenstruik and remains unbeaten in the UFC.

He takes on Russian veteran Volkov who has bounced back from the eighth defeat of his career, against Curtis Blaydes, with wins over Walt Harris and Alistair Overeem.

Ovince Saint Preux and Tanner Boser also go toe-to-toe in the co-main event from the UFC Apex.

Saint Preux is coming off a first-round TKO loss to Jamahal Hill in December, while Boser lost a split decision to Ilir Latifi less than two weeks ago.

Elsewhere on the card, light heavyweights Kennedy Nzechukwu and Danilo Marques square off, featherweights Andre Fili and Daniel Pineda meet, Tim Means and Nicolas Dalby are set to do battle in a welterweight contest and Renato Moicano takes on Jai Herbert.

And what's even better, you don't need to set your alarms! The full card is available on BT Sport 2HD from 7pm on Saturday night.

West Indies v South Africa: 1st & 2nd T20s

The white-ball leg of South Africa’s tour of the West Indies begins with the first two of five Twenty20 matches this weekend.

The Proteas have dominated proceedings in the two-match Test series in Saint Lucia, but they could face a sterner test against a nation who have recently excelled in the shorter format.

Temba Bavuma will captain the tourists for the series, which will take place in the National Cricket Stadium in St George’s, Grenada.

Kieron Pollard will lead the West Indies who boast a number of Twenty20 legends in their ranks including Chris Gayle, Dwayne Bravo and Andre Russell.

South Africa won the first Test by an innings against a home side who offered limited resistance and will be looking to continue their momentum in the shortest format, two months after losing 3-1 to Pakistan.

Will the West Indies come roaring back? Or can South Africa continue their impressive tour?

Watch the 1st T20 from 6.45pm on BT Sport 3HD on Saturday night, with the action getting underway at the same time on BT Sport 1HD on Sunday.

A-League grand final

Melbourne City and Sydney FC battle it out in the 2020/21 A-League grand final on Sunday morning.

In a repeat of last year’s showpiece, which the Sky Blues won 1-0, both sides will be looking to cap off successful seasons by claiming the biggest prize in Australian football.

Sydney FC booked their place after defeating Adelaide United 2-1, while Patrick Kisnorbo’s Melbourne City claimed their spot after seeing off Macarthur FC 2-0.

The Sky Blues will be missing Andrew Redmayne, Rhyan Grant and Ryan McGowan after they were called up for Socceroos duty earlier this month, while Jamie Maclaren, Connor Metcalfe and Curtis Good are unavailable for City.

After finishing first in the regular season, Melbourne go into the game as slight favourites but history suggests reigning champions Sydney shouldn’t be written off. 

Watch live on BT Sport 3HD from 8am on Sunday morning.
