As I raised the question, I thought I would kick off this seasons predictions in the hope that I am not pre-empting anything. Apologies to whoever is taking over from Fatty1973.

TRING 5-1 Rochford Hundreds- A baptism of fire for RH about whom little is known. Tring however fired high in the league last season and expect a good start from them.
BEDFORD ATHLETIC 5-1 Sevenoaks- Was impressed with Ath's performances in 2nd half of last season. Good reports about visitors and expect them to perform well. Fast AW surface.
SIDCUP 5-0 CS Stags 1863- Cup to start with a win at home, although what team will Stags bring to the party
Wimbledon 2-5 LIWG- MOTD. Expect a feast of rugby from two top sides expected to do well. Cant chose between the two, but just favour visitors.
GUILDFORD 4-1 Tunbridge Wells- Not sure what to expect from two of last seasons mid table teams. Both will seek to erase any doubts. Just gone for home advantage.
DORKING 5-2 Guernsey- Expect fast expansive rugby from both sides like the 50-45 result in Guernsey on last meeting. D's have quietly been getting on and will seek to impress doubters. That said, could go either way.
Brighton 0-5 HERTFORD- Welcome to Brighton and the realities of L5. Despite good vibes from the South Coast, Hertford should have too much fire power. A tough intro for the newcomers.

Hoping not to make too much of a fool of myself on this opening day of the season.Ouch  With all clubs being tight lipped over the summer it is hard to know what strengths and weaknesses exist. A big welcome to the league returnees Guernsey and LIWG and promoted sides. This season looks on paper to be the strongest competition for many years. Good luck to ALL.

Tring 5-0 Rochford - Rude awakening for the (alleged) moneybags visitors
Bedford 5-1 Sevenoaks - Longest trip Oaks have ever made and on the plastic, advantage to Bedford I say
Sidcup 4-1 Civil Service - Tough one, Home advantage
Wimbledon 5-2 London Irish Amateur - If it's true Irish have lost a few players, then Dons have it and will be back with a vengeance after missing out last time.
Guildford 0-5 Tunbridge Wells - Without Sinckler or Ward, I see Guidford in trouble 
Brighton 0-5 Hertford - Too much experience from Hertford.
Dorking 1-4 Guernsey - Can only see a Guernsey win but want them to stay in the league!

Ok, been a watcher for many a year and thought it about time I joined in. I think I understand the scoring so here goes:

Tring 5 v 1 Rochford
Bedford 4 v 0 7Oaks
Sidcup 4 v 1 CS
Wimbledon 2 v 5 LIWG
Guildford 4 v 1 T Wells
Dorking 2 v 5 Guernsey 
Brighton 0 v 5 Hertford

I'm probably way off but at least there's 25 other weeks to improve. Good luck all Thumbs Up

Tring  v  Rochford      5-2     The Tring hillside to derail Roch. It does take some getting used to.
Bedford  v  Sevenoaks   5-0   Though Bedford started slowly last year, expect them to pick up how they ended.
Sidcup  v  CS Stags      5-2     Has the grass popped its head through the sand yet? Could go the other way too.
Wimbledon  v  LIWG     5-2     Coin flipped.
Guildford  v  T Wells      1-4    Could be a tough season for Guildford.
Dorking  v  Guernsey     1-5    Not sure about this one.
Brighton  v  Hertford      0-5    Fingers crossed Hertford can dampen what will surely be a lively atmosphere
 
Expecting some shocks this week. I reckon one of the relegated from above clubs might struggle (someone usually does) and one of the promoted will set off like a steam train until the grind sets in and the wife starts nagging about the long day away from home, things to be done, etc etc.
 
Good luck to all.

As mentioned very happy to do the scoring this year, now I understand itWacko
Tring  v  Rochford      5-2     Really not sure about this one as Rochford have stormed the lower divisions and it could be a shock but Tring to sneak it 

Bedford  v  Sevenoaks   5-0   Bedford were slow to start last year but came good at the end and expect a better start this year
Sidcup  v  CS Stags      5-1    Going with home advantage as haven't got a clue    
Wimbledon  v  LIWG     0-5     Geese look like they have a large squad and feel Wimbledon may have peaked last year
Guildford  v  T Wells      5-0    Pure guesswork
Dorking  v  Guernsey     5-2    Going with home advantage
Brighton  v  Hertford      0-5    Think the new boys will find it hard going at first
 
I expect it to be high scoring weekend and with 5 new sides in the league we are stepping into the unknown. Welcome to all the new teams and postersWink

Is it that time again already?  Welcome back everyone.  Here's to another cracking season.

Tring 5 v 0 Rochford     
No side climbs forever.  Rochford to be comfortable at L5, but Tring have such a good record at home. 

Bedford 5 v 1 Sevenoaks
Bedford looked better the longer last season went on.  Sevenoaks though had a terrific season across the Club last year.  I think Bedford will win, but Sevenoaks won't make it easy and I wouldn't be surprised if it goes the other way.

Sidcup 5 v 0 CS Stags
Sidcup look like they've had a reasonable pre-season.  Too much for Stags.

Wimbledon 4 v 1 LIWG
Wimledon unlucky to not go up last season.  They'll start strong.

Guildford 1 v 5 T Wells
A mixed season for both teams in 18/19 and only 4 points in it on the final table.  Your guess is as good as mine.  

Dorking 5 v 1 Guernsey
Dorking to catch Guernsey cold.  I'm curious to see how strong Guernsey will be this season. 
 
Brighton 0 v 5 Hertford
Hertford reliable all season long.  Assuming nothing major had gone wrong over the Summer I'd expect them to be around the top 5 again this season.

Tring 4-1 Rochford Tough opening game for RH and Tring will welcome them to a new league!
Bedford 5-1 Sevenoaks on that awful plastic, Bedford will be too strong.
Sidcup 4 v 1 CS Cup are dogged and will grind a result.
Wimbledon 4-1 London Irish Both have too much money, so I don’t care.
Guildford 0-5 T Wells TW should prevail but both will be in the bottom 3.
Dorking 0-5 Guernsey Away side will want to make a statement.
Brighton 0-5 Hertford Tough place to go but Hertford should have enough.
