"Every year the anticipation over the new fixtures grows and looking at the 2013-14 season it is clear we have huge matches every weekend," said Phil Winstanley the Rugby Director at Premiership Rugby.

"We've had three different Aviva Premiership champions in the last three years and last May we had a new club (Northampton Saints) in the Aviva Premiership Rugby Final."
