The 2018–19 Premiership Rugby was the 32nd season of the top flight of English domestic rugby union competition and the first to be sponsored by Gallagher.[1] The competition was broadcast by BT Sport for the sixth successive season with five games also simulcast free-to-air on Channel 5. Highlights of each weekend's games were shown on Channel 5 with extended highlights on BT Sport. The reigning champions entering the season were Saracens, who claimed their fourth title after defeating Exeter Chiefs in the 2018 final. Bristol Bears were promoted as champions from the 2017–18 RFU Championship at the first attempt.

On 4 May 2019, Newcastle Falcons were relegated with one game still to play, after losing away to hi-flyers Gloucester.[2] It was the third time that Newcastle have been relegated from the top flight since the leagues began, and the first time since the 2011–12 season. The Falcons will drop down to the 2019–20 RFU Championship.

In the final on 1 June 2019 Saracens retained their title, their 5th overall, by beating Exeter 37-34 at Twickenham. As Saracens also won the Champions Cup, this victory saw them complete the double.[3][4]

FixturesEdit

Fixtures for the season were announced by Premiership Rugby on 6 July 2018. Due to redevelopment work causing the closure of Twickenham Stadium, round 1 did not include the London Double Header.

Despite a four-year deal being struck in 2016, no matches have yet been scheduled to take place in the United States. It had previously been reported that Sale Sharks vs Harlequins in round 18 would take place at Toyota Park just outside Chicago, Illinois.[7] However, the round 6 match between Harlequins and Saracens was broadcast live in the US on a major network with NBC as opposed to NBCSN broadcasting for the first time.[8]

All fixtures are subject to change.

Highlights of the season include:

  • The Derby — Northampton Saints vs Leicester Tigers at Twickenham on 6 October
  • Big Game 11 — Harlequins will host Wasps in this season's edition of the Big Game at Twickenham on 29 December.
  • Derby Day Saracens vs Harlequins at London Stadium on 23 March.
  • The Big One Newcastle Falcons vs Sale Sharks at St James' Park on 23 March
  • The Clash — Bath Rugby will return to Twickenham on 6 April. This year's opponent will be fellow West Country rivals Bristol Bears.
