BT Sport have unveiled an intriguing build-up to 2022/23 Gallagher Premiership final, getting fans to select their Immortals XV before the selection culminates in a round-table debate show on May 27 featuring Ugo Monye, Lawrence Dallaglio, Ben Kay and Austin Healey.


Saracens, Sale, defending champions Leicester and Northampton are the four clubs still hoping to contest the prestigious Twickenham final latest this month and the appetite will be well and truly whetted by then with a daily countdown imagined by BT, the tournament’s premier live TV partner.

From this Thursday, May 4, through to Thursday, May 18, fans will be given the chance to take part in a vote that will cover all positions, starting with loosehead and ending with full-back.

Polling has kick-off with the No1 position, pitting Joe Marler, Graham Rowntree and Marcus Ayerza against each other.

Along the way, there will be video content debating the various positional head to heads. For instance, May 11, which is No8 poll day, will see a debate around the respective merits of Saracens’ back-rower Billy Vunipola versus the legendary Wasps skipper Dallaglio.

A statement explained: “As we head towards the end of the Gallagher Premiership season, BT Sport will be releasing a digital campaign called The Immortals. In short, the campaign will be a celebration of Premiership players – past and present – asking fans to select their Immortals XV and then sharing the team across social to enter a competition.”

  • BT Sport’s Premiership Immortals celebrates the greatest players in the history of Premiership Rugby. From May 4 until the Premiership final on May 27, fans will be able to have their say on who they think deserves to have a spot in the competition’s all-time team. Cast your vote
