Bedford - deserve one this season, no one can deny that! Tight 5 may be the decider
Street - close game just like last time, home advantage
Hinckley
Newport - back line should win it
Sandbach - home advantage
Sutton 
Syston - close home advantage

Sunny Scunny – sorry Bedford but cannot see a win now                         
Broadstreet
Nuneaton – must win for nuns or I think second place will slip away                         
Longton – massive game at the bottom. Home advantage and the confidence the win over south swings it
Sandbach – fancy Sandbach here.
Sutton – front runners and can not see them slipping up again
Lymm - another win at the bottom

The bottom at the league is going to get very congested and may be settled by bonus points.
Onwards and upwards.

Bedford Athletic                     
Broadstreet - too close now to let this slip up
Hinckley - I think Hinckley will want to make a point and Nuns are already on the slide
Longton - should be good enough at home
Sandbach - fighting hard and backs should have too much
Sutton - Sutton at home with plenty to play for and South away with nothing to play for                        
Lymm - intriguing but Lymm desperately need the points to survive and Syston are not going to survive even if they won all their matches so Lymm's desperation just to be that much greater

Dear Dick,

You take this predicting lark too seriously.
I back the Nuns religiously just like the guys from Lymm, Bedford, and S'thorpe back their teams.
Perhaps your not a Nuns supporter - Street maybe?

Set piece was the decider Dick, Nuns were under a lot of pressure at scrum time with the only outcomes being crappy ball from the base or penalties to Hinckley. When Nuns did get clean ball the backs were always a threat but their defensive line was not what it was earlier in the season.

Quality local derby very well attended from both sides

I keep an eye on most local rugby to be honest. Just thought nuns would win. Looks like street have the league pretty much wrapped up and national league rugby beckons.

Call me naturally suspicious, but when I read in the Rugby Paper that Sutton had played with 14 men for 60 minutes yesterday versus South I assumed that a man had been sent off early doors - but no Sutton “had” to go to uncontested scrums!
Was this genuinely bad luck that the front row players concerned were indeed injured after pushing the South pack backwards to initiate two kickable penalties to start their scoring.
Or was it something different?
I ask for clarification as I wasn’t able to attend.

However, in the last three games versus South, Sutton have resorted to uncontested scrums at some stage of the game, normally when things were getting a little uncomfortable- I wonder if other teams in this league have suffered similarly.
Too much of a co-incidence or what!
At least the referee yesterday had them withdraw a player otherwise the games would have gone the way of the previous two (where neither referee knew the rule) - effectively negating the power of the South scrummage, but keeping on the pitch their own full compliment of players.
I believe Sutton are very wary of South after the way we took them apart at their place last season to break their home winning run which apparently stretched back decades.

We weren’t good enough apparently yesterday to challenge - especially in defence - although a major factor of our game was completely negated.
If uncontested scrums are called what is to stop the instigating team from playing without both flankers - one off the field, the other operating as an extra back especially in defence.
They have no role other than leaning on - cute coaching, I suppose.

I do believe some team’s exploit the situation as it is at the moment - and what I’ve seen of referees at this level they are unaware of the correct procedure - it has also happened to South at one of the teams level on points at the bottom of the table.

I just wish the rule makers would tighten up and look into the loophole as a games complexion changes not for the better - imagine the furore it it happened in the premiership.

Come on RFU get it sorted.

Interesting Bottom.
What's the actual wording of the law to which you refer? Genuinely could do with seeing it cos none of our guys thought your comments were valid at the time. Would like to bottom this out (excuse pun).

PS: 10th place isn't bottom of league... ;-)
