If OE get 5 pts and Amps zero, then OE would take the title on wins (23/22). Pts diff won't come into it. It would be quite a turn-up if this scenario came to pass...

I believe that other than points deductions for whatever reason, Esher are relegated since even if they win their last game they can't get more wins than Caldy.

Disappointingly for Ampthill, Loughborough can escape if Caldy get no more points and the Students beat Ampthill 5-0 on the 27th, I wonder how many DRs they'll play... Double interest for Tigers since Amps not being promoted will avoid 'going down to the woods' next season should Tigers be relegated.

Cambridge can still surpass Caldy with a win if Caldy get no bonus points at Blackheath

I can't see Ampthill losing, meaning Loughborough Students and Esher will be relegated.

The games are so unpredictable that I currently couldn't pick between Caldy and Cambridge as both are capable of winning well on the road or losing to two teams who will be very keen to put on a good performance in the last home game of the season, sending their supporters home happy. However, as Caldy have a two point advantage, I would make them favourites to stay up.


Read the rules buddy!!

Ah, BBC tables have students on 56. NCA have them as 57. Now that makes a difference......

Yes OEs have benefitted from this rule before when securing a play off spot in N2S that eventually led to promotion. They had an inferior scoring differential to Chinnor and had lost both games to them but were deemed to be ahead because of games won.

A good bonus point victory for Caldy yesterday which means by my reckoning every club from Birmingham Moseley down is still in with a chance of going down or staying up but only Mosley and Caldy have it in their own hands.

Birmingham Moseley on 64 points with 10 wins need a point from their game against Caldy to be safe because a bonus point win for Cambridge away at Sale would overhaul BM on the number of wins rule

Caldy on 61 points with 11 wins need a win at BM to be safe because any other result can see them overhauled by Cambridge

If Cambridge on 59 points with 11 wins were to lose at Sale but pick up two losing bonus points and Caldy got no points at BM then Cambridge would leap frog Caldy by virtue of a better points difference (the teams then being tied on the same number of 11 wins)

If the Students on 57 points with 8 wins were to get a bonus point win against Ampthill they can overtake Caldy if other results go in their favour

If Esher on 56 points with 10 wins were to get a bonus point win away against Blackheath and other results were to go in their favour they could overhaul Caldy by virtue of their better points difference (the teams then being tied on the same number of 11 wins)

It will be an amazing final day with 4 matches all being pivotal to who goes down. 
However there is one important factor that may be decisive. Only two matches Birmingham Mosley v Caldy and the Students v Ampthill are games where both sides have something to play for.

It will be tense

RFU & NCA tables need an amendment. Loughborough only have 56 points (They didn't get a BP against Albion yesterday) 

This means the students will be relegated.

Albion report score as 29-20
If true - no BP for boro and they can’t overtake Caldy

Not only are the students going to be relegated, but Hull Ionians are to be promoted.
It pays to be wise after the event!!!

Yes there is. Nice.

The Students would and should have been relegated last season but for Nigel Melville's assistance but eventually, we all get what we deserve.

"Delicious irony" and perhaps a little karma?
