Blues 3-3 Pirates My tie of the round between two cracking teams and although 5-2 either way a more likely result this is the game I would love to see streamed.
Coventry 1-5 Ealing I hope Trailfinders can get a full house to keep the contest for top spot going but Cov at home are good enough to make this a big ask.
Jersey 4-1 Hartpury The away game was a shocking mismatch so hopeful that Banahan, and a few other guests will make this a close one. Still  hoping for a Jersey win.
London Irish 5-0 Donny- Banker five pointer for Irish which must give Donny a great chance of causing an upset.

Scottish 1-4 Leeds - Yorkies on a purple patch but exiles will push them all the way
Nottingham 2-4 Mond Any points will be welcome to Mond so I predict a narrow win by a couple of points but Notts to get 4 tries.

Dont kick it. Pick it up and GO FORWARD.

Bedford                        5 - 1     Cornish Pirates - I hope that they put on a show for Sky viewers, but that Pirates come away with few injuries ahead of their match with Irish.
Coventry                      5 - 2     Ealing - If Richmond can beat Ealing, Coventry can beat Ealing. Much will depend on selection.
Jersey                          4 - 1     Hartpury - I'm thinking that potentially the long trip might rob Glostolpury of some of their dual reg players, so I'll go with Jersey in this.
London Irish                 5 - 0     Doncaster  - Irish to come out firing to get back on track.
London Scottish            1 - 5     Leeds - Leeds players playing for next year's contracts.
Nottingham                  1 - 4     Richmond - Richmond is playing backs to the wall, and I'm going with Richmond to squeak this.

This is a rugby forum not football!! To hope that some Pirates get injured is disgraceful and totally alien to the spirit of our game.Angry

I read that as "few to none". not "a few". After all - there is no "a" there.

Why not put "hope Pirates do NOT pick up any injuries then it would not be open to misinterpretation". Or why not say nothing at all about injuries.

Indeed - as an Ealing supporter, I wish Pirates all the best ahead of their clash with Irish. Therefore, I'm hoping for few/no Pirates injuries ahead of that meeting. Deep breaths.

Bedford 5 Pirates 1 ... I agree with others, this 'should' be the tie of the round, but it won't be all plain sailing for BB and I can see this going to the last 10 minutes.
Coventry 1 Ealing 4 ... Really tough fixture this for ET. Cov are a quality outfit and have been a credit to the promotion system. Tight game, but Ealing to keep control with a single score in it.
Jersey 4 Hartpury 1 ... Forget the league standings, clearly Hartpury are now loading their squad with Glos players in a bid to keep them in the Championship. This will be a really tough game for Jersey, but one that I believe a 'team' that has been playing together all season will win over a squad of players, regardless of how talented. Therefore, a tight home win, but don't be shocked by a shock.
Irish 4 Doncaster 1 ... At home this 'should' be too much for Donny, but I think that the break would have done them good and they will push Irish all the way. If they keep their discipline then a shock might be on the cards.
Scottish 0 Carnegie 5 ... Great win against LI to be followed up with a strong performance on the road. Expect sparks up front early on in this one.
Nottingham 1 Richmond 4 ... Desperate times produces desperate results and I think that Richmond could sneak this one if they play with passion and belief. Nottingham are a silky outfit, but could be undone if they let their concentration slip.

Good luck everyone and no injuries please!!
