With the demise of London Welsh this is pretty relevant for all four National 3 Leagues with the third from bottom side with the best record being saved from relegation. So at the end of Round 20 we currently have:

Bridgnorth (Midlands) 41
Salisbury (South West) 37
Morley (North) 30
Southend (London) 26

The Midlands currently in pole position.

Not sure that is the case as there is no relegation from Championship this year but only one side will come up from Nat 1, so do not see a knock on effect on levels below this?

...by all accounts Morley are not the side they were earlier in the season (brought some players in)  ... the North's representative in the 'survival league' is likely to come from Donny Phoenix or Cleckheaton (currently both on 31)

So one club fewer will be relegated from National One (otherwise that division drops from 16 teams to 15 with nobody coming down), and one fewer relegated from National Two, and so on.

There is a knock on impact, Shamrock and it's previously been announced that it impacts all divisions down to Level Seven, I believe.

Southend had 10 points deducted. They've won 2 of their last 3 and have some winnable fixtures remaining. I think 3rd bottom in L&SE will finish around 38 and that's if Southend don't have points reinstated. Otherwise could be as much as 47. That's the mark to beat. What do you predict other leagues?

No change at the moment after Morley made no headway in their game in hand today

Bridgnorth (Midlands) 41
Salisbury (South West) 37
Morley (North) 30
Southend (London) 26

6 games to go in all leagues. Are Southend appealing the deduction?

So you'd think the team that gets a reprieve will come from Midlands or South West.

Morley managed to get their game postponed so no movement in the North but the Midlands extended their lead albeit the personnel have changed

Longton (Midlands) 43
Launceston (South West) 37
Southend (London) 31
Morley (North) 30

So since I've started this I'd better continue. We now have in 12th position across all 4 leagues

Longton (Midlands) 44
Launceston (South West) 38
Southend (London) 35
Doncaster Phoenix (North) 31

Phoenix join the list although they would be better off catching Cleckheaton than climbing out of this league. Longton still set the pace and Midlands still look best placed to survive (Which is good news for Midlands 1 West and Midlands 1 East).
