The new season of Aviva Premiership rugby starts on Friday night when Leicester travel to Gloucester and Sale visit Newcastle and for 11 of the teams in the top flight, it will be a case of trying to knock champions Saracens off their perch. We give a rundown of all 12 clubs and assess how their seasons will pan out.Bath RugbyIn: Luke Charteris (Racing 92), Taulupe Faletau (Newport Gwent Dragons), Elliott Stooke (Gloucester Rugby), Michael van Vuuren (Leicester Tigers), Harry Davies (Cardiff Blues), Kahn Fotualii (Northampton Saints), Jack Walker (Yorkshire Carnegie)Out: Will Spencer (Worcester Warriors), Ollie Devoto (Exeter Chiefs), Rob Webber (Sale Sharks), Jonathan Evans (Scarlets), Luke Arscott (Bristol Rugby), Max Northcote-Green (London Irish), Brett Herron (Ulster), Stuart Hooper (retired), Dominic Day (Toyota Verblitz), Amanaki Mafi, Tom Woolstencroft (Wasps), Leroy Houston (Queensland Reds), Horacio Agulla (Castres Olympique) Kyle Eastmond (Wasps), Alafoti Faosiliva (Worcester Warriors)Key Player: Dan Bowden -- Amid all their signings, the lack of cover at inside centre is alarming. Bowden is a proven player, someone who can slot into the playmaker role with ease but they lack back up options after losing both Kyle Eastmond and Ollie Devoto in the close season. Keeping Bowden fit is essential.Coach: Todd Blackadder -- The Crusaders man replaces Mike Ford in charge of the west country side and will look to bring some stability to the club after a year of disruptions. He will have to adjust quickly to the tempo and style of the Premiership and fans could be set for a year of transition.What they could say at seasons end: Bath got their style back and the Challenge Cup win will give them heart.Bristol RugbyIn: Jordan Williams (Scarlets), Rhodri Williams (Scarlets), Jordan Crane (Leicester), Jon Fisher (Northampton), Thretton Palamo (London Welsh), Tusi Pisi (Sunwolves), Nick Fenton-Wells (Bedford), Giorgi Nemsadze (Tarbes), Soane Tongauiha (Oyonnax), Will Hurrell (Doncaster Knights), Ryan Bevington (Ospreys)Out: George Watkins (Jersey) Marco Mama (Worcester), Matthew Morgan (Cardiff), Ellis Genge (Leicester), Josh Ovens (released), Tommaso Benvenuti (Treviso), Craig Hampson (Wasps), James Stephenson (released).Key Player: Soane Tongauiha -- Set piece stability will be essential for Bristol if they are to retain their top flight status having been promoted from the Championship at the end of last term. The hugely experienced prop will need to establish himself as the key cornerstone of their scrum.Coach: Andy Robinson -- The former England, Edinburgh and Scotland coach last coached in the English top flight 16 years ago but has all the nous required to ensure they hit the ground running.?What they could say at seasons end: It was by the skin of their teeth, but Bristol will hope this season puts them in good stead for the 2017-18 Premiership campaign.Exeter ChiefsIn: Dave Dennis (Waratahs), Ollie Devoto (Bath Rugby), Greg Holmes (Queensland Reds)Out: Jack Arnott (Cornish Pirates), Chrysander Botha (Released), Alex Brown (Perpignan), Adam Hughes (Dragons), Josh Jones (Salford Reds), Byron McGuigan (Sale Sharks), Jerry Sexton (London Irish), Lewis Stevenson (Connacht), Brett Sturgess (Retired), Jake Woolmore (Jersey).Key Player: Henry Slade -- On his day, Slade is the most gifted playmaker in the Premiership and at Eddie Jones disposal with England. But after recovering from his horrible injury, he struggled for form at the end of the season and with Ollie Devoto now in the mix at the Chiefs, Slade will need to hit his straps early on.Coach: Rob Baxter -- The excellent Exeter coach has stuck to his guns of slow evolution with his recruitment in the close season and the stability means they will be looking for another top four spot.What they could say at seasons end: Next season will be the one where they finally take that next step to becoming champions.?GloucesterIn: Tom Denton (Leinster), Josh Hohneck (Highlanders), Lewis Ludlow (Academy), Motu Matuu (Hurricanes), Matt Scott (Edinburgh Rugby), Andy Symons (Worcester Warriors), Ollie Thorley (Academy), Cameron Orr (Greater Sydney Rams), Dan Thomas (Academy)Out: Rob Cook (released), Tom Hicks (Rotherhan Titans), Steve McColl (Yorkshire Carnegie), Dan Murphy (released), Steph Reynolds (released), Elliott Stooke (Bath Rugby), Nick Wood (released)Key Player: Matt Kvesic -- The openside is not in favour with England but he is still one of the Premierships finest fetchers. If he plays well, throughout the whole campaign, then they will be targeting top six.Coach: David Humphreys -- Theres a feeling that Humphreys is yet to put his stamp on this side having taken over from Nigel Davies in 2014. This needs to be the season where everything starts to click for the Cherry and Whites.What they could say at seasons end: Kingsholm is still an intimidating place to travel to, but wheres the teams fear factor gone?HarlequinsIn: Cameron Holenstein (Pau) Aaron Morris (Saracens), Charlie Mulchrone (Worcester Warriors), Mark Reddish (Highlanders) Ruaridh Jackson (Wasps), George Naoupu (Connacht), Gabriel Ibitoye, Dino Lamb-Cona, Jonas Mikalcius, Niall SaundersOut: Beau Robinson (Doncaster Knights), Ben Botica (Montpellier), Kieran Treadwell (Ulster), Luke White (unattached), Mofe Wilkey (unattached), Sam Egerton (Newcastle Falcons), Tito Tebaldi (Treviso), Nick Easter (Harlequins Defence Coach)Key Player: Joe Marler -- The Harlequins pack has lost the experience of Nick Easter so Marler will need to take on those leadership responsibilities in the front eight alongside Chris Robshaw and James Horwill. The loose-head is one of the finest props in Europe and will be hoping for a more straightforward campaign.?Coach: John Kingston -- Harlequins former head coach has stepped up to fill Conor OSheas shoes. With Graham Rowntree on board, things will be a little different at Quins this term but Kingston will be key in bringing out this teams potential.What they could say at seasons end: The November Tests and Six Nations are the two spells where their top six aspirations suffered.Leicester TigersIn: Tom Brady (Sale Sharks), Pat Cilliers (Montpellier), Ellis Genge (Bristol Rugby), George McGuigan (Newcastle Falcons), JP Pietersen (Stormers), Matt Toomua (Brumbies)Out: Matias Aguero (Provence Rugby), Seremaia Bai (retired), Tommy Bell (London Irish), Miles Benjamin (retired), Gonzalo Camacho, Jordan Crane (Bristol Rugby), Sebastian de Chaves (London Irish), Jean de Villiers (retired), Jake Farnworth, Leonardo Ghiraldini (Toulouse), Vereniki Goneva (Newcastle Falcons), Christian Loamanu (Provence Rugby), Niall Morris (Leinster Rugby), Tiziano Pasquali (Benetton Treviso), Laurence Pearce (Sale Sharks), Aniseko Sio, George Tresidder (Rotherham Titans), Michael van Vuuren (Bath Rugby), Jake Farnworth (Birmingham Moseley), Opeti Fonua (Newcastle Falcons)Key Player: Manu Tuilagi -- England, Tigers and Tuilagi will hope this is the campaign where his troublesome groin injury finally behaves itself and the wonderful outside centre can get a whole, injury-free. season under his belt. The thought of him partnered with Matt Toomua in the Tigers centres is frightening.Coach: Richard Cockerill -- The definitive Mr Tigers will not be happy with a run of three seasons without silverware and will hope this is their time to knock Saracens off their perch.What they could say at seasons end: The Tigers are back to their fearsome best but fell at the final hurdle.?Newcastle FalconsIn: Nick Civetta (I Medicei, Italy), Kyle Cooper (Sharks, SA), Andrew Davidson (Glasgow), Sam Egerton (England 7s), Vereniki Goneva (Leicester Tigers), Joel Hodgson (Yorkshire Carnegie), Tyrone Holmes (Glasgow Warriors) Sam Lockwood (Jersey), Evan Olmstead (London Scottish), Harrison Orr (Ealing), Ben Sowrey (Worcester), Opeti Fonua (Leicester Tigers)Out: Todd Clever, Eric Fry, Josh Furno (Zebre), Rob Hawkins (retired), Richard Mayhew (Yorkshire Carnegie), George McGuigan (Leicester), Kane Thompson (Manawatu), Giovanbattista Venditti (Zebre), Gonzalo Tiesi, Ruki Tipuna, Alesana Tuilagi, Andy TuilagiKey Player: Vereniki Goneva -- The ex-Tigers winger has established himself as one of the Premierships finest finishers. The Falcons faithful will hope he takes that form to Newcastle.Coach: Dean Richards -- This is his fifth campaign in charge of the Falcons and may be his hardest yet with the Premiership more competitive than ever.What they could say at seasons end: They battled valiantly but those narrow defeats hurt them.Northampton SaintsIn: Matt Beesley (Wharfedale), Charlie Clare (Bedford Blues), Nic Groom (Western Province), Louis Picamoles (Toulouse), Juan Pablo Estelles (Atletico del Rosario)Out: Alex Corbisiero, Jon Fisher (Bristol), Kahn Fotualii (Bath), Danny Hobbs-Awoyemi (London Irish), Pat Howard (Newport Gwent Dragons), Victor Matfield (retired), Matt Williams (Worcester), Alex Woolford (released)Key Player: Louis Picamoles -- Out of all the off-season signings, Northamptons acquisition of Louis Picamoles is the most intriguing. The France No.8 is a powerful ball-carrier and can break gainlines with ease through his own bulk and sleights of hand. He should be a star of this seasons Premiership.Coach: Jim Mallinder -- Last season would have been disappointing by Northamptons standards and Mallinder and his familiar coaching set-up of Dorian West and Alex King will hope this campaign ends with silverware.What they could say at seasons end: They were there or thereabouts but their old East Midlands rivals did for them in the semifinals.Sale SharksIn: Laurence Pearce (Leicester Tigers), Rob Webber (Bath Rugby), Josh Charnley (Wigan Warriors RL), AJ MacGinty (Connacht), Dan Mugford (Nottingham), Kieran Longbottom (Saracens), Paolo Odogwu (Leicester Tigers), Mike Phillips (Racing 92), Halani Aulika (London Irish), Lou Reed (Cardiff Blues), Byron McGuigan (Exeter Chiefs), Curtis Langdon (London Irish)Out: Danny Cipriani (Wasps), Tommy Taylor (Wasps), Joe Ford (Yorkshire Carnegie), Vadim Cobilas (Bordeaux Begles), Chris Cusiter (retired), Tom Brady (Leicester Tigers), Viliami Fihaki (Edinburgh), Mark Easter (Retired), Nick Macleod (Newport Gwent Dragons), Phil Mackenzie (San Diego Breakers).Key Player:?AJ MacGinty -- Filling Danny Ciprianis shoes will not be easy but MacGinty, who won the PRO12 with Connacht, is a talented No.10. He will need to adjust to the pace of the Premiership quickly and slot into Sales system but he should dovetail nicely with Mike Phillips.?Coach: Steve Diamond -- Hes Sale through and through and the recruitment over the summer suggests they have prioritised physicality and experience.?What they could say at seasons end: It was a campaign of plenty of positives and they will hope to build on these foundations next term.SaracensIn: Schalk Burger (Stormers), Mark Flanagan (Bedford Blues), Alex Lozowski (Wasps), Vincent Koch (Stormers), Sean Maitland (London Irish), Save Rawaca (Fiji 7s)Out: Biyi Alo (Worcester Warriors), Jacques Burger (retired), Catalin Fercu (Timisoara Saracens), Rhys Gill (Cardiff Blues), Charlie Hodgson (retired), Ernst Joubert (retired), Baden Kerr (released), Kieran Longbottom (Sale Sharks), Nils Mordt (retired), Aaron Morris (Harlequins) Dave Porecki (London Irish), Hayden Smith (Esher), Ben Ransom (London Irish), Max Wilkins (released).Key Player: Alex Lozowski -- He joins Saracens as second choice fly-half behind Owen Farrell and when the latter is away on England duty, the promising Lozowski will have to fill that sizeable void. It is testament to Saracens trust in his potential that they chose him to replace the now retired Charlie Hodgson.Coach: Mark McCall -- Last season finished with the Premiership-Champions Cup double and McCall will be targeting the same this term.What they could say at seasons end: Shall we use the same red and black ribbons, bunting and fireworks as last year?WaspsIn: Guy Armitage (London Welsh), Kurtley Beale (NSW Waratahs), Danny Cipriani (Sale Sharks), Tom Cruse (London Irish), Nick De Luca (Biarritz Olympique), Kyle Eastmond (Bath Rugby), Marcus Garratt (Cornish Pirates), Craig Hampson (Bristol Rugby), Willie Le Roux (Canon Eagles, Arrives in January), Marty Moore (Leinster Rugby), Matt Symons (London Irish), Tommy Taylor (Sale Sharks), Tom Woolstencroft (Bath Rugby)Out: Lorenzo Cittadini (Bayonne), Bradley Davies (Ospreys), James Downey (retired), Carlo Festuccia (Zebre), Ruaridh Jackson (Harlequins), Ben Jacobs (retired), Alex Lozowski (Saracens), Andrea Masi (retired), Charles Piutau (Ulster), Siale Piutau (Yamaha Jubilo), Edd Shervington (retired), George Smith (Suntory Sungoliath & Queensland Reds), Jamie Stevenson (London Scottish).Key Player: Danny Cipriani -- The prodigal son returns. The Wasps backline is box office and Cipriani is the man who will be pulling the strings.?Coach: Dai Young -- From near relegation to boasting some of the worlds finest backs in a handful of seasons, Dai Young may pinch himself on occasion this term. But with these expensive recruits comes an increased expectation and Wasps will be expecting silverware this term.What they could say at seasons end: But for Saracens, wed have won the Champions Cup this term.Worcester WarriorsIn: Will Spencer (Bath Rugby), Ben Teo (Leinster Rugby), Matti Williams (Northampton Saints), Jackson Willison (Grenoble), Marco Mama (Bristol Rugby), Alafoti Faosiliva (Bath Rugby), Biyi Alo (Saracens - Injury Dispensation)Out: Jean-Baptise Bruzulier (Nevers), Ravai Fatiaki (released), Dan George (released), Mat Gilbert (Hartpury College), Alex Grove (Moseley), Charlie Mulchrone (Harlequins), Darren OShea (Munster Rugby), Joe Rees (Rotherham Titans), Dan Sanderson (Yorkshire Carnegie), Sam Smith (retired), Ben Sowrey (Newcastle Falcons), Heath Stevens (London Welsh), Andy Symons (Gloucester Rugby)Key Player: Francois Hougaard -- The Springboks scrum-half joined midway through last season on a short-term deal and made such an impact, he was given a permanent deal. He transformed their season and is one of the most dangerous No.9s in world rugby. Sixways new plastic pitch will suit his style.Coach: Carl Hogg -- Dean Ryan left at the end of the season and Hogg takes his place in charge of Worcester. He is a great rugby man but has big shoes to fill with Ryan gone.?What they could say at seasons end: Ben Teo was a hit and its a case of onwards and upwards.
