Predictions:
London Scottish 0-5 Jersey - Jersey will be chomping at the bit after their Bristol triumph.
Rotherham 4-1 Bristol - the aura has well and truly been burst around Bristol, judging on yesterday's result at Ealing Titans could pull this off.
Doncaster 5-2 Richmond - a very emotional occasion for both teams but hopefully it is a cracking game full of tries.
Hartpury C 0-5 Cornish Pirates - CP have won their last two and they should make it 3 on the bounce.
Nottingham 1-5 Bedford - Bedford will once again run in the tries.
Yorkshire Carnegie 4-1 Ealing - Carnegie at home are strong. Ealing could well trip up in this one.

some great games on paper here, game of the round is at Headingley or Lady Bay.

London Scottish 2-5 Jersey I expect Jersey will rest players this weekend and next ahead of the B&I quarter final with Knights so a really close game which could go either way but still hoping for a Jersey win.
Titans 5-2 Bristol Roth must want to win this as much as Jersey did at AG last week so I punt for an unlikely shock home win
Knights 5-0 Mond At home Donny to win by 10-12 points and score 4 tries
Hartpury 2-2 Pirates Although 4-1 either way probably more likely
Nottingham 2-5 Blues Should be the tie of the round loads of tries and Bedford to win it by 3-5 points
Yorkies 1-5 Ealing Unclear where Trailfinder's mindset is after the close match with Roth but on their day they are the best side I have seen in the Championship this season.

Dont kick it. Pick it up and GO FORWARD.

Scottish 4 Jersey 1  At the RAG LS are difficult to beat.
Roth 5 Bristol 0 Bristol too good.
Doncaster 1 Richmond 4  Could go either way. Mond may be rusty but they have Luc Jones(worth at least one try) and Allmalechicken back.
Hartpury 4 Pirates 1 Home advantage but could go the other way
Nottingham 1 Bedford 5 Bedford's form is better.
Carnegie 1 Ealing 4 I expect normal service to be resumed

Would love Ealing to win and Bristol to lose, just to inject a bit of spice into the tail end of the season.

London Scottish 0 - 5 Jersey Scottish seem to be sleepwalking through the tail end of the season
Rotherham 0 - 5 Bristol I expect a come-down after the last minute loss.
Doncaster 4 - 1 Richmond Financial Year end coming up, the part-timers may have trouble focusing.
Hartpury College 1 - 4 Cornish I know nothing about these teams except for seeing Pirates play the first week of the season.
Nottingham 1 - 5 Bedford A billion tries to be scored.
Yorkshire Carnegie 4 - 1 Ealing I have a feeling that Ealing may put out a weaker side this week to try out some players who AREN'T leaving for next year. May revisit after the squads are announced.

LS 4 - 1 Jersey ... I know going against my team here, but LS know that a win will just about secure Championship rugby next season with Titans hosting Bristol. Jersey will be resting players ahead of B&I Cup, plus trying out the new recruits (I should imagine), so a tough one to win away from home.
Rotherham 1 - 5 Bristol ... Rotherham will just go for this. Absolutely nothing to lose and will pick up a TBP. However, the wounded animal will want to make a statement after their home defeat to Jersey, expect a response.
Doncaster 3 - 3 Richmond ... Boy, is this going to be emotional, but what better way of celebrating a young life than to play an expansive game in a true Barbarian spirit. I expect 100 plus points and a draw in this one, all washed down with plenty of ale. Thoughts are with you guys.
Hartpury 1 - 4 Pirates ... This will be tight, but I expect the visitors to come away with the plunder here.
Nottingham 1 - 5 Bedford ... Both teams like to move the ball, so if conditions are good, this could be a cracker. Bedford to outscore Nottingham by 6 tries to 4.
YC 1 - 4 Ealing ... Another tight game on paper and I think that the Trailfinders will just sneak this one, but it will be very close, possibly down to last play or final kick of the game.

All these predictions of a bedford win make me nervous - we never do well at Lady Bay normally!

It feels like Scottish have been sleepwalking through the last three seasons!

I think we’ve won every game since they moved back to lady bay? Certainly won the last 3. Our record at meadow lane was terrible.
