After a thrilling round of midweek matches, Premiership Rugby is back and bigger than ever with a three-day bonanza of live action this bank holiday weekend.
The games are coming thick and fast since the restart and the play-off picture is already taking shape with the race for the top four set to go down to the wire.
Here we bring you up to speed with all the fixtures, form, coverage times and how to watch every match on BT Sport.
Sale Sharks 40-17 Bristol Bears
Sale Sharks thrashed a second-string Bristol Bears side 40-17 with Luke James securing two tries in what proved a comfortable victory.
The home side raced into a three-try lead through James, Denny Solomona and Faf de Klerk who all secured converted tries for the Sharks.
Sale were 26-0 up when Alapati Leuia's try reduced the deficit for Bears before half-time but another try from James and one from Marlon Yarde secured a bonus-point win.
Harlequins 30-17 Northampton Saints
Harlequins revived their play-off hopes with a thrilling bonus-point victory against Northampton Saints in a game that features some delightful attacking play.
Quins were 18-14 up at the interval thanks to Nathan Earle and Scott Baldwin tries which cancelled out Rory Hutchinson and Ryan Olowofela tries.
And second-half efforts from Chris Ashton and Chris Robshaw eventually sealed victory for Paul Gustard's side.
Exeter Chiefs continued their dominance in the Gallagher Premiership with a thumping win over an abject Worceter Warriors.
Jonny Hill and Sam Simmonds scored hat-tricks while Stuart Hogg, Jacques Vermeulen and the returning Jack Nowell also got in on the action in a nine-try display from the table-toppers.
Gloucester 46-30 Leicester Tigers
Ollie Thorley recorded an incredible four first-half tries as Gloucester survived a late Leicester fightback to claim victory in Sunday's third and final match.
Thorley (4), Joe Simpson and Chris Harris all went over for Gloucester before the break as the home side threatened to run riot.
But Harry Potter pulled one back before Jordan Taufua and Cameron Henderson ensured a nervy finish. The win was only sealed when Lloyd Evans went over late on.
London Irish 12-40 Saracens
A six-try display from Saracens saw off a spirited London Irish side as relegated Sarries warned up for their Champions Cup quarter-final against Leinster in style.
Jamie George (2), Brad Barritt and Billy Vunipola all went over before half-time while Irish debutant Agustin Creevy and Matt Williams responded.
But Richard Barrington made sure of the win after the break as Williams saw a late try disallowed for the home team.
Injury-hit Wasps showed remarkable fight to come back from 13-0 down and beat Bath Rugby, keeping their own top-four hopes alive in the process.
Ruaridh McConnochie went over for Bath inside 90 seconds as the home side raced into a 13-0 lead after 10 minutes but Jacob Umaga's try helped see Wasps draw level at half-time.
Both Wasps hookers were then injured and the match went to uncontested scrums yet Josh West scored to put Wasps ahead before Jack Walker tilted the tie back in Bath's favour.
A penalty try late on sealed the win though as Sam Underhill was found to bring a maul down illegally by an officiating team which included a female - Sara Cox - for the first tme in Premiership history.
