The ESPN cameras will take in the all-London derby between Harlequins and Wasps on February 9 after the latest batch of televised games were confirmed on Wednesday.
With Rounds 1-13 already etched into the television schedules, Rounds 14 to 17 have now been revealed. The ESPN cameras will travel to the north west of England to see Sale's game against Exeter on February 8 and will then journey to the Stoop to take in Harlequins' clash with Wasps on February 9.
In Round 15, London Wasps are in action on ESPN with their clash against Gloucester on February 17 televised. And Gloucester are in action a week later against Worcester on the Friday evening with Leicester's clash against Saracens also on ESPN the day later.
Round 17 sees ESPN broadcast the West Country derby between Bath and Gloucester and the cameras will then take in Saracens' new Barnet home for the first time on March 3.
