The reigning champions entering the season were Saracens, who claimed their 3rd title (and 2nd consecutively) after defeating Exeter Chiefs in the 2015–16 final.

In the final on 27 May, Exeter Chiefs defeated Wasps 23-20 to win their first ever Premiership title.[1][2][3]

After just one season back in the Premiership, Bristol were relegated with two games to go after they lost 21-36 to Wasps at Ashton Gate on 16 April 2017.[4]

TeamsEdit

Bristol, having beaten Doncaster Knights 60 – 47 on aggregate in the Greene King IPA Championship play-off final, replace London Irish, who were relegated last season after finishing bottom of the table.[5]

Regular seasonEdit

Fixtures for the season were announced by Premiership Rugby on 7 July 2016.[6] As is the norm, round 1 included the London Double Header at Twickenham. For the first time since its 2004 inception, the Double Header involved only two of the original London teams - Harlequins and Saracens - with London Irish having been relegated to the Championship for 2016-17 and Wasps no longer being based near London. Unlike the previous year, no games would take place abroad. All fixtures are subject to change.[7]
