I wouldn't be at all surprised if Bristol beef up this team for this match. With an eight point lead in The Championship I don't see why they cannot also think about going for the B & I Cup as well.

I suspect that Bristol will stick to their current plan and give run outs to the supernumerary players / Bristol United.....the cup holds no interest for them. 
Onward and Upwards C'mon Donny!

agree entirely, they don't want any stupid injuries to key players in the cup. I expect us to beat Bristol in the cup at CP in January.

I believe that Bristol are playing EQP players for the B&I, including some schoolboys. Obviously looking to the future.

Here we go:

Bristol 0-5 Leinster I agree with other posters, if Bristol play a weakened side (and I suspect that they will) it could be a drubbing
Munster 5-1 Bedford. The current holders are a tough nut to crack at home, but Bedford will give it a go.
YC 1-4 Dragons I can see YC playing a weakened side as they did in Jersey and a shock could be on the cards.
Rotherham 4-1 Ealing It has got to happen at some time, so why not now?
Hartpury 0-5 Ulster This could be a bit too much for Hartpury, assuming that Ulster send over a strong side.
Mond 4-1 Connacht I fancy Richmond in s tight one here.
Jersey 5-0 LS Have to back my own team. Also the Reds will put out the strongest side available for this one.
Donny 5-0 Cardiff Solid home win here.
Scarlets 1-5 Pirates CP will be too strong in this one. Forwards will dominate
Nottingham 5-0 Ospreys Nottingham to get back to winning ways.

I think that I have got them all. Good luck everyone

Friday 8th December:
Bristol 4-1 Leinster A - 7.45pm (Pool 2) with Leinster's first team away to Chiefs  on Sunday I think Briz will have a big enough squad to win this one.
Munster A 1-4 Bedford - 7.45pm (Pool 1)  A close game which could go either way.

Saturday 9th December:
Yorkshire Carnegie 5-0 Newport PS - 13.30 (P3) YC forwards and defence to make this a home win by 15-20 points
Rotherham 0-5 Ealing - 14.00 (P4) Ealing have strength in depth and Roth will be saving their efforts for the league
Doncaster 5-0 Cardiff PS - 14.30 (P2) I expect Donny to have far too much for a young Cardiff side
Hartpury 1-5 Ulster A - 14.30 (P5) Should be a really good open game to watch with lots of tries
Jersey 5-0 London Scottish - 15.00 (P3) I'm hoping Brizzer's selection policy is followed although I would expect changes in the front and back rows of the pack
Richmond 5-0 Connacht Eagles - 15.00 (P4) Banker

Sunday 10th December:
Scarlets PS 0-4 Cornish Pirates - 14.30 (P5) A comfortable away win by 10-15 points
Nottingham 5-0 Ospreys PS - 15.00 (P1) Another banker Notts are a quality side.

Dont kick it. Pick it up and GO FORWARD.

Thanks for the correction Stalwart. A couple of the websites I usually check still advise that it would be O'Sullivan and Joy Neville was due to referee a match at Donnybrook.

Strangely Bristol are putting out a rather strong side (although Bedford supporters may be surprised to see who is named at hooker):

15. Mat Protheroe; 14. David Lemi, 13. Alapati Leiua, 12. Siale Piutau (c), 11. Tom Varndell; 10. Callum Sheedy, 9. Andy Uren; 1. Ryan Bevington, 2. Nick Fenton-Wells, 3. Sione Faletau, 4. Giorgi Nemsadze, 5. Joe Batley, 6. Sam Graham, 7. Olly Robinson, 8. Jack Lam.

Replacements: 16. Ben Gompels, 17. Jack Cosgrove, 18. Ollie Dawe, 19. Joe Joyce, 20. Rhodri Williams, 21. Billy Searle, 22. Jack Tovey.

I saw the side and was surprised by it. its not Bristol's absolute best side but it is very strong indeed. only problem is Briz's pack looks a bit undermanned so I would expect Leinster to dominate the scrums. mind you Bristol can play off the back foot as they did v Ealing!. will be very close. I still don't quite know why Briz would pick this side though.

Maybe they have decided that they can have a go at winning the competition given the size and strength of their squad?

I should have delayed my result forecast if I had seen that team I would have gone 5-0 for Bristol. It would be great if Briz get through the group stage and are drawn away in the quarter finals.

It's an odd selection given the fact we were, literally, playing schoolboys in previous rounds.

How do the Briz fans travel? It was a lot of fun last year when a mob of Irish supporters descended on Vallis Way and we had nearly 3000 people.

I await the details of the Mond team before predicting. Mostly they've played second and third teamers in this competition, but they're playing this week end, so will see.
Glad to see Nick Fenton-Wells playing for Bristol. He went to the same school as me , albeit he  wasn't born when I was there. We also have Nizaam Carr in the Premiership and Tim Swiel.Don't these people know it's warm in Cape Town now?

The way LI are playing this season you may well have another invasion next season, but not in the B&I cup by the looks of things.
