Who goes down with Old Pats and Nab's is anyone's guess with just a point separating three teams.



I think it will be mightily close Barum Man! With away fixtures at Barnstaple, Bracknell and Camborne to come, plus a home fixture versus Bournemouth, I think Ivybridge have the toughest run in, whereas for Maids and Barum, that head to head clash on the 23rd is key. I can’t see how it won’t go down to the final game of the season, where Maids will have a long trip to Brixham, whereas Barnstaple will welcome Weston, who will be comfortably mid-table by then.

A fascinating few weeks coming up which could see bonus points prove vital.


One big thing in you favour 'Maids' is that Bournemouth will have almost certainly have won the league by the time you play them (not saying you would not have beaten them anyway!).




Hi Barum Man,

I hope you’re right, but I have a feeling that Bournemouth will be gunning for us, after we dispatched them at our place before Xmas. 5 tough games left, can’t wait!

Cheers
I remember when Rams won the league  4 seasons ago 'Maids' - we were in the bottom half and played them last game of the season when it was done and dusted - they rested a few and others were not fully committed, we beat them 39-7 (coincidently exactly the same score we beat you earlier in the season - just saying Wink)

I remember that game well Barum Man, t'was a long coach journey down to be on the end of a bit of a stuffing, the coach back only took 10 minutes though! Smile

You have had a great season Paul - some new places to travel next season. I guess it will add to your travelling time/miles but at least only Plymouth Albion in the far south west.

The Chickens are being counted just yet at Rams......... Smile I  don't do too many away trips these days, but yes, I think the team will have a number of overnight stops needed next season if the unmentionable happens. Looks like it'll be an exciting run in to the Southwest league, good luck to the mighty Barum Thumbs Up
Enjoying life!

Congratulations to Newbury on promotion from SW1E. The play off place is still being hotly contested. 

In SW1W, it's a real tight race between Oakhampton and Launceston for the automatic promotion spot.

In SW1 East despite their loss to Newbury in their last match the play off spot is still Old Cents for the taking. They have a decent run in but probably the key game for them is at 5th placed Wootton Bassett who are still on with a shout themselves.
If they slip up in any of their 4 games it will let Banbury in to the play offs again (having lost to Exeter Uni last Yr) as I think they will win all their remaining games as they they have 3 of the bottom 4 plus mid table Wimborne to play.
What is pretty certain is whoever of Okehampton or Launceston comes runners up in SW1 West will have home advantage in the play offs.

Well done to the Blues - have not seen them at Barum since the 2011-12 season so look forward to welcoming them at Pottington Rd next season.

Thanks Barum man looks like there will be a few long trips to Devon & Cornwall for the Blues next season but looking forward to it. Of course we may not play at Pottington Rd if you make it up via the playoffs! #Goodluck
