Times subscribers joined us at The News Building for an evening with our panel of rugby experts to discuss the 21st season of the Aviva Premiership.

The Times chief rugby correspondent Owen Slot hosted a panel of The Times and Sunday Times journalists, including Stuart Barnes and Jim Hamilton, as well as Saracen's flanker, Michael Rhodes. They gave insights on the 12 clubs taking part this season and their predictions on how the tournament will play out.

Last May Exeter Chiefs won Premiership Rugby Final which was the culmination of one of the most exciting and unpredictable seasons, the hugely competitive nature of the League meant this was the fifth different Champion in six years. Our panel discussed the chances of the current champions retaining their title, which teams look set to give them the biggest challenge and gave their opinions on which of the seasons fixtures excite them the most.
