Predictions:
Doncaster 5-0 Richmond - Donny have eased away from relegation danger now so hopefully they'll be more relaxed and confident and will put on a show for the Castle Park crowd.
Bedford 5-1 Coventry - Blues are always a difficult proposition at Goldington Road, i'd be surprised if Cov won this one away from home.
London Scottish 2-5 Nottingham - a high scoring game in prospect here I think but Notts seem in a rich vein of form at present so I expect that confidence to see them across the line.
London Irish 1-4 Jersey - could Jersey complete a famous double? I think this is the best team Jersey have ever had in this league and I think they'll win this, even away from home. Big call I know but the Reds could hardly be in better form. I think this is LI's toughest match of the season.
Cornish Pirates 5-0 Hartpury - sorry Hartpury but I can't see any joy in this one for you guys. Pirates are in an inconsistent phase at the moment but their form at home is usually on the money.
Yorkshire Carnegie 2-5 Ealing - wow what a game this could be. a rejuvenated Carnegie will be really tough to put away but Ealing need the maximum point haul in Yorkshire so I think they'll just do the job.

Doncaster 5-0 Richmond - Amazed at how well Ollie Stedman is playing for Donny after providing minimal effort for Ealing. I think Donny are finding some form with recent recruits and will win handily.
Bedford 5-1 Coventry - I think that Bedford bounces back, but a lot depends on if Hooley is available.
London Scottish 4-1 Nottingham - I think Nottingham may suffer a bit of a hangover from their valiant attempt to knock off Irish. 
London Irish 1-4 Jersey - You have to think that Irish will be tired after the run of tough fixtures they've had, while Jersey will have nothing to lose and massive amounts of confidence.
Cornish Pirates 4-1 Hartpury - I think Hartpury will focus on Pirates shaky pack to keep this close, but I really can't see them winning at the Menaye.
Yorkshire Carnegie 2-5 Ealing - I wish Ealing would have gotten to play Leeds when they were fielding 14 men and a dog at the start of the season, but I think that Ealing could finally be hitting stride. There was a lot to like in their victory over Scottish, where the score line was flattered a bit by 3 very soft tries (which of course still count on the scoreboard!).

I and many others think Ollie played his best rugby the last time he was here with us, and now he is back he is getting back to being on form. Perhaps it is the style of rugby we play that suites him. 6 Tries in 5 games, not a bad record and he had to cover some yards to get them too.

Happy to have him back, another one of yours did ok for himself too - although getting the man of the match may have included some bias from a former scrum half who played with his father...... Wink
Onward and Upwards C'mon Donny!

Not sure about that. LI have played Hartpury, Richmond and Nottingham post Christmas. Would only describe the last one as a tough fixture and we have a 9 day turn around. May well lose to Jersey on Sunday, but it would more likely be because they are the better team on the day rather than anything to do with tiredness.

And my prediction may be a bit more heart than head... ;)

It may not be. Jersey do seem to be out kryptonite and they are in great form.

Should hopefully be a decent game in front of the Sky cameras.

It being on sky is probably the biggest thing in our favour. We seem to really up our performances when we are on TV. I remember Cowan admitting as much last time around. Jersey certainly really firing at the moment and will be a big threat. Very important that we get selection right.

Irish just need to keep their composure and they will see off Jersey, will be a decent game but Jersey are a touch over-hyped IMHO.

so overhyped they managed to beat Irish in November... if Irish play to their potential they should beat everyone in this division with the squad they have.

Interesting opinion. Out of curiosity, is there any specific reason that you think that Jersey are overhyped?
The Reds are on form in the league and just have the 1 defeat at Ealing in recent games, as have LI with their defeat in Jersey.
The form book has LI with 21 league points to Jerseys 20, but LI have scored a lot more points than the Reds.
Both teams are in good form and LI are rightfully favorites, but Jersey are more than capable of beating them.... again.
Personally I wouldn’t say that they are overhyped, just enjoying a current good run. This ‘should’ be a cracking game for the Telly.
