Predictions:
Hartpury 1 v 5 Doncaster - I think Doncaster should start with the maximum 5 point haul.
Ampthill 1 v 4 Nottingham - really close game but I think Nottingham should win it.
Jersey 4 v 1 Coventry - a really good game in store but Jersey at home are formidable.
London Scottish 0 v 4 Newcastle - LS will be ready for this one and will make it hard but Falcons will pull through relatively comfortably in the end.
Cornish Pirates 2 v Ealing 5 - Brilliant game for round 1 but I think Ealing will edge a high scoring thriller.
Yorkshire Carnegie 1 v Bedford 5 - Blues have had a shocking start to the season but surely they can’t lose to Carnegie at present?.

Hartpury College 4 v Doncaster 1  - Close run game, home advantage
Ampthill 1 v Nottingham 5 . . . Notts normally start season well

London Scottish 0 v Newcastle 5  - Banker
Cornish Pirates 1 v Ealing 5 - Tough , but if Ealing are serious it starts here!
Leeds 0 v Bedford 5  . . even a very poor Bedford side should have too too much for Leeds

Ealing will feel the pressure playing in front of a large crowd in PZ.

Hartpury 1-4 Donny This could go either way and will be hugely influenced by the loan influx from Glos/Wuss/Briz
Ampthill 2-2Nottingham  This one should be really competitive. I predict a low scoring draw although 4-1 either way probably more likely

Jersey 5-2 Coventry As its Mrs C's 65th birthday I will miss this one but hope to follow the match on Radio Jersey from a boat somewhere a bit warmer than St Ouen. 

Scottish 0-5 Falcons Banker away 5 pointer which surely gives Scottish every chance of a win.

Pirates 0-5 Ealing Another Banker away win so Pirates have every chance of winning it.  

Yorkshire Carnegie 4-1 Bedford Could go either way but I expect a decent crop of loan recruits to strengthen Yorkies.

Hartpury 0-5 Donny I think that the cavalry won't be available until after the World Cup, so I think that Donny wins this one handily.

Ampthill 4 -1Nottingham Ampthill come into this one with all of the momentum.

Jersey 4-1 Coventry Coventry very impressive against Ealing in wet weather last weekend, but I find it hard to bet against Jersey at home in the regular season.

Scottish 1-4 Falcons Scottish have impressed in the cup, and I like to think that they'll continue that by containing Falcons.

Pirates 4-1 Ealing I've been looking at the schedule to start the season with a sick feeling in the pit of my stomach for a couple of months now. After watching Ealing fail to pick up the BP in Coventry at the same time that Pirates smashed Nottingham, I can't say that I find myself relieved.

Yorkshire Carnegie 0-5 Bedford A "get well" game for Blues.

Hartpury 1 v 5 Doncaster

Ampthill 4 v 2 Nottingham Hard one to call, Ampthill buoyed by their derby victory 

Jersey 4 v 1 Coventry clash of the week, just calling Jersey based on home advantage

London Scottish 0 v 5 Falcons LS done well but I suspect Falcons will swoop in for the 5

Cornish Pirates 1 v Ealing 4 Ealing will be made to work very hard for their points, could go other way

Yorkshire Carnegie 0 v Bedford 5 YC managed to get points on the board this weekend but cannot see Bedford not managing to get the Win (even with their current woes)
Onward and Upwards C'mon Donny!

I hope and pray that you are wrong CC, with regards to a sudden influx of loan recruits that is.
Onward and Upwards C'mon Donny!

Am waiting till I see some teams announced suspect there will be a few surprises from YC and possibly Hartpury. Will still be useless at predicting but it will make me happy !!!

Hartpury 0 v 5 Doncaster ... Donny way too strong for the students

Ampthill 0 v 5 Nottingham ... Real Championship life starts here. Nottingham to give a lesson in how to contro0l a game.


Jersey 4 v 1 Coventry ... The weather forecast is fantastic for this one (at the moment) and this could be a brilliant game. I have to go with my team to win a thriller and turn over last seasons last game shocker.


LS 0 v 4 Falcons ... Falcons to be professional and strangle the life out of LS.


Cornish Pirates 1 v Ealing 5 ... Trailfinders to turn up the heat, but not without a few worries on the way. Great game on paper.


Yorkshire Carnegie 0 v Bedford 5 ... Don't care who YC pick, they are in for a tanking!
