To deflect from the ups and downs, does anybody on this forum think that Westcombe Park will play their self-imposed re-arranged game in the Kent Cup Semi Final against Sidcup, or will the contracted paid players want the weekend off again!? #iamtheblokewhorunsithelps!!

Its a cracking league, and is not set to get any easier next season with Beckenham and KCS both tearing their respective leagues apart. The level transfer picture is not so clear given 3 L1N sides occupy the spots in LP. If Chiswick are promoted in the Play Off they could be in the frame, but with HAC it all depends upon which ground they designate as their home one, cos they play all over the place at times. Priorians (Ealing) would be another potential and even Eton Manor if the balance of the sides is over in the east. Thurrock elected to come across, and am guessing they would do the same, but if they don't then we could be looking for 2 teams. As for 2 weeks time, only Cannon has actually identified himself to me (and we know each other anyway!) from the many posters on here, so it would be great if you came and said hi Vuarnet as we have a great relationship with Chi - who knows, I may even dust off my wallet post match!!

Totts putting 40 points on Chi pre Christmas was engineered by availability (sorry Garath) and a pitch which was awash, the proof in the pudding will be in that final week-end. Darts are a passionate team but with a home draw will have an advantage if they haven't already saved themselves from the drop. I will say again though based purely on distance to travel I am hopeful Totts perform a miracle redemption and London Cornish go down....only kidding Dickon, see you in a couple of weeks!

I don’t think the break could have come at a better time for Darts. Looking at their next two fixtures there’s potentially ten points up for grabs which I think Darts are more than capable of achieving.
To little to late for Tots I’m afraid especially when you consider their run-in and they will be relegated along with Chobham and Hove.

Bit of a dramatic statement, and frankly I think its a load of old tosh. Young side yes, inexperienced at this level yes. No leaders. Rubbish.  To be fair I think a lot of teams would be at their most argumentative just after conceding a try. Ultimately it comes down to results, but thanks for the extra motivation to beat Chobham. Every little helps.

Darts seemed on the verge of imploding given the arguing I witnessed between players on Saturday, both after conceding tries and on the final whistle. They are a very young side, and didnt appear to have a real leader on the park. Chobham will certainly not roll over on Saturday week, and I am certain Totts have a few surprises left in them yet, given they proved capable of putting 40 points on Chi the week before Christmas. I suspect it will go down to the wire.

I predict 7oaks to finish top with Brighton in second place, Totts will get dropped with Chobham and hove, simply because Totts still have all the top sides in the league to play, darts must get 10 points in there next 2 games against hove and Chobham, I can’t see Totts picking up anymore points now, maybe they’ll get a losing bonus point against darts in the last game of the season, it will certainly be an exciting finish at the top and bottom

Well Darts still have Hove & Chobham to play which may mean they get 10 points

Totts have played both of them already & have not picked up many losing points in the last few weeks.

It may come down to the last game of the season for both clubs.  Darts vs Totts

If 7Oaks can win their next 2 games (Medway then Camberley) they would be in pole position as the remainder of their run in is the easiest looking compared to the other top 4 teams. I think Camberley have the toughest, but also potentially most rewarding, given they play all of the top 3 above them so Cam could rocket up or drop off to finish 4-8 points behind. The other 3 games for them are also against tough opposition in WP, Cobham and Totts (who will be fighting for every single point available). 

Could Havant deliver some payback in the final game to Medway for the battle between them last season?! Could prove all important to who gets that second spot

Prediction at this stage is 7Oaks top with Brighton second

Battle for the drop is probably even tighter - tough to call between them (is Chi's run of form over???) but I would have to say it will be Darts simply because Totts have more experience in the league and reckon that will juts tip the balance in their favor.

I suspect you'd get HAC then who are based in Chiswick close to the river .

Level transfer applies down to level 7. It is only at level 8 (London 3 or equivalent) that there is no transfer.

Well done B Rex for predicting the demise of Chi, two pretty evenly matched teams (on the day) being officiated by probably the most inept ref in Sussex, at least he was equally bad for both teams and it did keep us all guessing in the bagatelle of decisions what he was going to call next!

League still remains an enigma with many permutations as to the winners and losers but it will be three down for sure and ever hopeful our reward will be two promotions as well. Share the opinion it will all rest on the final game of the season, tasty!

Best, Vuarnet

Interestingly the three bottom clubs in London Prem are all from the north side. Not sure how exactly it works but if it stays the same there will be no-one coming down to our league ??? So there could be a reprieve for the side in our league who second from bottom.
The older I get, the better I was.

Looking at the final 6 rounds still looks to be 4 clubs in contention and still looks to be a dog fight at the bottom end, I previously thought it would be down to the last three games of the season, now looks like it could be the last weekend for both ends of the table, I also think there will be some shock results from the mid table clubs.

Strange that Cornish Simon is a neutral when watching the Cornish play.  Shocked But I like you hope that Darts stay up this year. 

The game was quite an evenly contested game.  Back and forth with some good tries from both teams. The Darts winger chipped over the top in the last few mins, and looked odds on to collect the ball and score under the posts. Unfortunately the oddly shaped ball bounced the wrong way for Darts fans. However the result could have easily been a draw.

I thought the referring of the set piece was fairly poor throughout, and despite the the correct decision by the referee to sin bin a Cornish player for intentionally knocking the ball on 5 metres from his own try line, I think the ref generally was poor. But its a tough job being a ref. I wouldn't want to do it. Darts players have themselves to blame for giving the LC an easy first 5-10 mins and not the referee. 

A much needed win for Darts is very close, and I'm sure the team will fight to the end against every team they play against this season. 

Looking forward to reading Dickon's unbiased review of the game Wink

I was down to watch darts v Cornish Saturday as nuetral and I must say London Cornish were very lucky to get the win! Darts young squad were very much the better side for the majority of the match, I hope darts battle back and avoid the drop as they deserve to stay in this league, Dickons match report will be an interesting read
