Caldy supporters will be delighted to know that Jack Lavin has recovered from his broken neck and made his Esher debut last night against Rosslyn Park.

I assumed RP still had their income from the big billboards, so would have kept a strong squad and would be there or thereabouts for promotion.

Having looked on RP site, it was officially a Park Rangers (2nd XV) side. Still a good result.

Not even close. Bench was stacked but apart from that at Dave Lewis  at 9 not a lot of these guys will be seeing game time in National 1 unless there are mass injuries

Redurth ( if they travel) now Fuca is coaching them. They should have gone up last time before season ended IMO and would have done instead of Ton Judds had it been played out. 
Bury have put together a tidy side and Clifton have as well now they have the Bristol link working again. Id say Esher 3rd behind Redruth and Clifton.

Im sure a number will go up (with the re-org more places potentially up for grabs)
Redruth i agree are another contendor, Bury not so much DoR & Head Coach leaving so close to the season a big issue for them.
How many Bristol players will Clifton get with the current regulations?

Bury have Ford as head coach, possible the best coach in some peoples eyes in the league.

I am not sure, I would not bank on more than 1 to go up, unless Esher finish 3rd, the the rules may be bent!
As we know the leagues are going to 14, they will reduce the numbers coming down, instead of those going up, to keep the strength in the leagues.

Clifton can field up to 7 in a league game, be it a mixture of qualifications and routes to get to that number.
They have already beaten a full stength Taunton side on the road and Cardiff Met.

I seem to recall the last time (ok one of the last times) the RFU bent the rules it ended in Esher being relegated!
