Good to see Sara Cox back at the Mennaye, one of the better Championship refs in our experience.

Maybe for Pirates but I don't believe she's good enough for level 2 rugby, could be worse I suppose as we could've had Dean Richards, now he is poor.

She was excellent a couple of weeks back at Doncaster.
Arguably the best Ref seen this season.

Best move her up to the Premiership then

On a serious note, as Dalesman pointed out. She is clearly the best we have seen at Doncaster all year

Predictions:
Coventry 1 - 5 Ealing - Ealing too strong I think but should be a great game.
Hartpury 1 - 4 Ampthill - low scoring game in prospect but Ampthill on a roll.
Bedford 1 - 4 Doncaster - going to be very close but can see Donny nicking it.
Jersey 0 - 4 Newcastle - usually a banana skin fixture for the relegated Premiership club but Jersey have been inconsistent this year and they've been patchy at home. I think Falcons will win with relative ease.
Cornish Pirates 5 - 1 Nottingham - Pirates to keep up their good home form but Nottingham will play their part In an entertaining game.
Leeds 0 - 5 London Scottish - even an out of form LS side won't lose this one. maybe Leeds may get within 25 points this week.

A lot of the Donny fans disagreed with you on the day mate and howled abuse at her when she declined to yellow card the Jersey player for a tackle in the air having previously carded a Donny player for the same offence. On balance I thought she had a pretty good match at Donny but I wouldn't put her down as the best I've seen this season and for what its worth of the six managing championship matches this weekend I rate three of them higher.

Don't most supporters judge the ref by whether they favour their team or the opposition rather than whether he/she referees to the laws correctly?  Or is that just Cov fans...?

The Jersey tackle was neither dangerous or reckless, penalty only. The Doncaster tackle was reckless penalty and a card. Simples 

She was clear in her signals, consistent and fair. ALL the Doncaster support around where I sit thought she was the best SEEN at Doncaster all season.

Coventry 1-4 Ealing Trailfinders. Very close to call but Ealing to nick it.
Hartpury 1-4 Ampthill. Again very close, but Ampthill to nick it.
Bedford 5-2 Doncaster. Perhaps the game of the day with Bedford continuing to improve.
Jersey 0-5 Newcastle Falcons. Jersey appear out of salts. Newcastle do not.
Cornish Pirates 4-1 Nottingham. CP too good on their own patch.
Yorkshire Carnegie 0-5 London Scottish. But I don't think it will be by 50 points.

I don't disagree with your analysis mate but the Donny fans around me on the open terrace literally screamed abuse at the ref to try and procure a card. On the day I actually think the crowd abuse probably saved the Jersey lad from a card as over the years I have found that crowd abuse of refs rarely achieves the objective the hecklers are trying to secure. They pay their money however so I respect their right to express an opinion.

Coventry 0 - 5 Ealing Cov will be disappointed with their league position and it wont improve here
Hartpury 1 - 4 Ampthill  Amps are not too hot away from home, but will grind it out to go 4th
Bedford 5- 0 Doncaster  Blues at home to go through the gears against Donny
Jersey 0 - 5 Newcastle Falcons truck on, too much experience and nous to let the trip get to them
C. Pirates 5 - 2 Notts Plenty of points, and 2 at the Mennaye about the best Notts can hope for
YC 0 - Scottish 5 Mix of students, journeymen and lastminute.com imports no way to prosper

Coventry 1 - 4 Ealing Trailfinders - hoping for a home win, but think Ealing’s consistency to win out
Hartpury 4 - 1 Ampthill- unlikely to be a try fest, but a home win the result
Bedford Blues 5 - 2 Doncaster Knights - recent improved home form to be the key
Jersey Reds 0 - 5 Newcastle Falcons - Falcons promotion charge to continue unhindered 
Cornish Pirates 5 - 0 - Nottingham- Pirates to be too strong on their own patch
Yorkshire Carnegie 0 - 4 - London Scottish - the Exiles pack to prove their worth yet again.

Happy rugby watching everyone.

Coventry 0 - 5 Ealing ... Coventry are good at home, but they won't get any advantage from the surface. Ealing's quality to show.

Hartpury 4 - 1 Ampthill ... This will be a really tight game, but I think that the Hartpury defence at home is solid, so a narrow home victory for me.

Bedford 5 - 2 Doncaster ... Game of the week for me. Both teams have hit some form and Donny will take some stopping. However, there is a new resilience surrounding Bedford. Could go either way, but I will go for a high scoring, tight, home win.

Jersey 4 - 1 Newcastle ... Not the form that I wanted Jersey to be in coming into this game, however, the pressure will certainly be off and the wind will be howling. What better stage to show your PL credentials for those Reds players who dream of a step up to the next level.
A Pembo drop goal special from his own half to win it.

Cornish Pirates 5 - 0 Nottingham ... Another good game, but Pirates are just too damned good at home. Tough day for the visitors in testing conditions.

Leeds 0 - 5 London Scottish ... Easy peasy lemon squeezy.
