Bristol/Gloucester/Worcester 4 v Nottingham 1  - Unfortunately home win 
London Scottish 4 v Coventry 1  - Home advantage
Richmond 0 v Ealing 5  - Tough for Mond, Ealing need to keep winning and big
Doncaster 5 v Bedford 2  - Home advantage ..  but lots of points
Leeds 1 v London Irish 5  - Irish on a roll and preparing for Prem return
Cornish Pirates 4 v Jersey 1 - Home advantage . . but a great scrap

As everyone agrees the Hartpury situation is farcical and to basically loan a new team to avoid relegation begs the question, what is it all about? Does not say much for the coach . . but unfortunately it is in the rules . . but what would the RFU know. The Leeds situation is different in so much as they signed most of their new players. Richmond would never bring in a new team from Quins or elsewhere, they would simply promote from one of their 5 senior mens teams!!! As the only truly part time side they are always up against it . . earlier in the season they easily beat Hartpury only to face a completely different 15 a couple of weeks ago . . if it went to the last game would they bring in Charles Piatau?


Run with it

Aren't some of the Leeds signings short term? i.e. not even to the end of the season as they need to return to NZ for ITM cup rugby.
Onward and Upwards C'mon Donny!

Hartpury fly half change could be crucial.

I had a chuckle at this one as over the years a Jersey win in a match with Dean Richards in charge is about as rare as hen's teeth so surely he can't be a bad appointment for Pirates & Jersey! Clubs have access to the videos of every match so they must know how he referees a match and should coach their players to play within the boundaries he sets. Statbunker put him mid table on cards given out this season - a fair number of them were probably in Jersey's match at Bedford! 
I hope Mr Richards and his A/Rs have a good match on Sunday and the players from both sides keep their discipline so he can keep his cards in his pocket and everyone on the pitch for the full 80. I won't blame Mr Richards if it doesn't happen that way but look at the players & coaches instead. A dry day in Penzance would also be good. 

Dont kick it. Pick it up and GO FORWARD.
