Difficult week to project with a lot of players expecting this to be break week...

Barnes 5 - Shelford 0 - Shelford not good on grass, Barnes could be depleted with ski season
S&E 5 - Saxons 0 - Saxons to be relegated this weekend if Sidcup win.. no pressure
Tows 1 - Sidcup 4 - Tows to be relegated this weekend.. Sidcup need to win 
Tring 5 - Westcliff 0 - The slope, Westcliff have nothing to play for
TW/RTW/Tonbridge 5 - Dorking 2 - high scoring but expect TW to exact revenge for early season defeat
WP 1 - Hertford 4 - WP will fight and fight for this expect a card or 2 in this one 

Good luck all and supporters its not t-shirt weather yet

Tough this as most teams will have one or two at Twickenham I guess, or skiing !! I’ve been underestimating Tring all season. Gone with them today, so Sod’s law Westcliff will probably turn them over. WP are much improved and fighting for survival and Hertford have been hanging on lately with great defence. It wouldn’t shock me if I’ve got this wrong.

Barnes 5-0 Shelford
Sutton & Epsom 5-0 Southend Saxons
Towcestrians 0-5 Sidcup
Tring 5-0 Westcliff
Tunbridge Wells 5-0 Dorking
Westcombe Park 0-5 Hertford

BARNES 5-1 Shelford- Unless Barnes are depleted a home win should be comfortable.
SUTTON & EPSOM 5-0 Southend Saxons- Sutts finish strongly and secure safety.
TOWCESTRIANS 4-1 Sidcup- Tows with pride intact.
TRING 5-1 Westcliff - Tring to keep up the pressure.
TUNBRIDGE WELLS 5-0 Dorking- Twells good recently. Cant rely on my team away from home.
WESTCOMBE PARK 4-1 Hertford- Not sure who Hertford are playing so home win.

That's put the cat amongst the pigeons.  Congrats to WP on a fantastic win against Hertford. 

It's perhaps surprising how many teams are still having to look over their shoulders to avoid that final drop spot.  WP still have plenty of work to do but there will be a few slightly more nervous clubs in the places above them after today.  Winning one more match than Guildford or Shelford in their final four matches will see them safe.  Sidcup can't afford to relax either.

Guernsey look pretty secure at the top, but the matches for Tring and Barnes over the next three weeks now look really tasty.

Westcombe Park vs Tring on the final day of the season could be a decider for both clubs at opposite ends of the table.  

Really interesting stuff.  All the best to all of those Clubs playing for promotion, or survival.

I really hate to say it but i think Westcombe ParK will stay up. Guildford were shockingly bad against Tring the other weekend.

It is going to be one hell of an end of the season in this league. There is currently 3 points between 12 and 10th position. Who can work the hardest?

Its also going to be a great finish at the the top of the table this year. Whoever finishes second has already guaranteed a home play game, looking at the last few years results the home team ends up going up!

Bournemouth or Maidenhead looks like being their opposition. So comparatively not too far for them to travel (unless Guernsey slip up of course!)

I think we may be out of the play-off race now. 7 points an awful lot to make up in 4 games even with those above us playing eachother.

Carlos - NOT SO SURE... with the games left, im sure Hertford will max out with 105 points. Thats a tough mark for the current placed second and third teams to achieve with the run in.

Those 3 points we dropped yesterday will cost us I think.

Why do you hate to say it GJT?

I see it was one of the loan players from OE's that did for Hertford with a hat-trick!

Both sides only had 7 players that played in November when we beat them quite comfortably at home. I know most of our changes are due to injury or unavailability so I'm not going to throw mud about loan players as WP might well have had the same problem.

A bogie side of ours that are doing what they have to to stay up. I forecast Guildford to go down for most of the season, and I would be very nervous if I were them.

For the sake of accuracy, WP actually had 10 changes from the side that faced Hertford in November, 8 due to injury some of which have been season ending, the other 2 were missing due to unavailability. Saturdays squad featured 2 loanees from OE’s, one playing his 3rd game for Combe and the other has been ever present since mid October, the 16 other players were all WP players.

Good game given the conditions and result could have gone either way. 6 or 7 cards shown, 1 for a late tackle and 5 or 6 for technical offences, by no means a dirty or noticeably feisty game and it was Hertford going down to 13 with 15 mins remaining that prob swung it in Combe’s favour despite being 22-12 down at that point.

From the Wimbledon website

"It was unfortunate that Dorking RFC conceded the Surrey Cup semi final the weekend before last. It transpires they didn’t want to play our second team."

Seems a strange thing to do for a club that prides itself on bringing youngsters through.Can you believe everything a website says ?

Went to watch the Wells v Dorking game at the weekend and it was almost a complete role reversal from the first fixture which I also watched. 

First of all, credit to both sides in the way they went about the game in the conditions. Tried to play rugby and the accuracy of ball in hand was generally good considering the snow, ice, temperature and mud! 

Last time out, Dorking bullied T Wells all across the park but especially up front in the tight five. This looks to have been an area that the lads from St Marks have reinforced in as despite a few early wobbles the T Wells scrum was solid, took a couple against the head and created a solid platform for their always exciting back line. I was very impressed with their front row, all of whom went the full 80 and put in massive shifts as well as working hard in the loose. 

I liked the look of the Dorking winger (his name escapes me). Broke numerous tackles in the mud and looked a danger every time he got the ball. 

Hope the lad (number 8 I think) from Dorking isn't too badly hurt, but looked in a fair bit of pain being carried off the pitch.
