Aviva Premiership Rugby Highlights - 2015–16 English Premiership - Netflix

The 2015–16 English Premiership was the 29th season of the top flight of English domestic rugby union competition, and the sixth to be sponsored by Aviva. The competition began slightly later than normal, due to the 2015 Rugby World Cup taking place in England, and was broadcast by BT Sport for the third successive season. Highlights of each weekend's games were shown on ITV4. The 2015 London Double Header games at Twickenham were played at round 5 instead of round 1. The reigning champions entering the season were Saracens, who had claimed their second title after defeating Bath in the 2014–15 final. Saracens defended their title – becoming the first team to do since Leicester Tigers in 2008–09 and 2009–10 – with a 28–20 win over the Exeter Chiefs at Twickenham. The Chiefs, who made the playoffs for the first time in their history, had the top points scorer Gareth Steenson (with 258 points), and top try scorer Thomas Waldrom (with 13 tries) in the competition. With their title win, Saracens sealed a European–league double – having won the 2016 European Rugby Champions Cup Final a fortnight prior, against Racing 92 – the first English team to do so since Wasps in 2004. London Irish were relegated to the 2016–17 RFU Championship with a round to spare, after losing 32–25 to Harlequins. They will be replaced by 2015–16 RFU Championship winners Bristol, who beat Doncaster Knights 60–47 in the two-legged play-off final.

Aviva Premiership Rugby Highlights - Regular season - Netflix

Fixtures for the season were announced by Premiership Rugby at 11am on 3 July 2015. Unlike previous seasons, the London Double Header would not take place in round 1 because Twickenham Stadium was being used for the 2015 Rugby World Cup, but would instead take place during round 5, on 28 November 2015. One game during this season was played on foreign soil, in the United States. The London Irish v Saracens match – played in Round 16 on 12 March 2016 – took place at the Red Bull Arena in Harrison, New Jersey.
