I think the crowd will be around 500 but 750 would be desirable. It is a shame it is not Jersey in the final at Ealing ! . Leinster will have minimal support.


Maybe people will come to drink and watch the Champions Cup final. The crowd was good when the 6 nations were on afterwards.

Call me an optimist but I wouldn’t be surprised if it crosses the 1000 barrier.

He will be a big loss to Bedford Blues. 242 appearances and 45 Tries  ( according to Statbunker  )

Agreed, hopefully he will be there as a motivator/mentor next season. He is a definitive team player.

Will Davis, Alun Walker and Lewis Thiede start in a strong front-row, with Sam Dickinson and Harry Casson in the second-row. The settled back-row of Kieran Murphy, Rayn Smid and captain Mark Bright will look to give the backs as much quick ball as possible. 


Luke Carter and Shane O’Leary will aim to control the match as half-backs, whilst Joe Munro and Piers O’Conor continue in the midfield. James Cordy Redden and Seb Stegmann occupy the wings, with Luke Daniels at full-back and holding what could be the crucial goal kicking responsibility. 


Rhys Lawrence, James Gibbons and Mark Tampin offer a front-row alternative from the bench, with Ollie Curry and Dan Temm covering the rest of the pack. 


Calum Waters provides scrum-half back-up, and Peter Lydon completes the match day squad.

I think that this is the optimal Ealing selection.

This is pretty much our strongest side bar perhaps the injured Barney Maddison, which is pretty incredible for the last game of the season.

Replacements: Sean McNulty, Peter Dooley, Jack Aungier, Caelan Doris, Will Connors, Hugh O'Sullivan, Tom Daly.

The only player I know of is Peter Dooley the sub loose head. He converted from being a no8 when he was 16 and played for Leinster in representative rugby

HT at Vallis Way - pouring with rain.

Ealing 10 - 7 Leinster

Scrappy but compelling, Leinster defence dominating the loose, Ealing pack dominating the set piece.

Anyone’s game

Disappointing attendance again at Ealing. When the Pirates won the first year of the Cup the attendance was over 3000 at Camborne.

Congratulations Ealing, glad to see the Cup back on these shores. Actually Pirates attendance at the first B & I Final was nearer 6000 than 3000.
