A very hospitable club Nottingham - I'm sure they will be lending some players to Leeds to make up the numbers if required. I'm hoping the pie & Bovril will be up to Donny's usual high standard when I come up in a few weeks.

On their website Bath have a 1st team squad of 49 and I think only4/5 are off to the world cup so they could happily lend 10 or so to Yorkshire for some match practice. On the other hand Sale show a squad of 31

For anybody wanting to make a prediction on the Pirates v London Scottish game please note that it will be played at the RAG NOT the Mennaye.

Top man Capt. I extracted the original list from
but Pirates & Scottish confirm that it is the RAG so I have amended the original & apologise to Silverfish who should properly review his predictions particularly the one where he predicts Falcons will beat Jersey and score five tries - more chance of Falcons lending Jersey Sam Lockwood & Gary Graham for the match than that Falcons winning at St Peter next week - a home banker surely.

You may need to click on the 'x' next to Pool 1, and then it should show the fixtures for all 3 pools. Not that easy to navigate around IMHO, but anyway...

If you’re local to Coventry or fancy paying a visit to the new artificial surface at the BPA, Cov are at home on Saturday 28th v Bedford 4pm kick off (development side play at 12:30h and Ealing at home under Friday night lights the following week at 7:30pm.

Championship Cup, Round 1 Match Officials

Nottingham vs Yorkshire Carnegie
Referee: Hamish Smales
Assistant referees: Ian Bibey , George Richardson
Assessor: Christopher White

Doncaster Knights vs Hartpury
Referee: Neil Chivers
Assistant referees: Simon Park, Gregg Dawson
Assessor: Stephen Leyshon

Ampthill vs Coventry
Referee: Michael Hudson
Assistant referees: Gareth Holsgrove, Jamie Leahy
Assessor: Stephen Leyshon & Robin Goodliffe

Bedford Blues vs Ealing Trailfinders
Referee: Craig Maxwell-Keys
Assistant referees: Gregory Garner, William Burton
Assessor: Nigel Yates & Peter Huckle

Jersey  vs Newcastle Falcons
Referee: Matt Turvey
Assistant referees: Nigel Carrick, Darryl Chapman
Assessor: Andrew Vertigan

London Scottish vs Cornish Pirates
Referee: Thomas Foley
Assistant referees: Clare Daniels, Michael Woods

Mr Turvey's last trip to St Peter was a tad eventful for the visitors London Scottish who had a journey from hell to get to the Island on a foggy day. Having spent over 5 hours on the plane including circling around overhead the airport they eventually got in after a pre-match meal of airline biscuits. A 20 minute warm up and ultimately conceding 6 tries to Jersey in a big defeat before dashing back to the airport. I'm sure Falcon's enormous budget will fund flights and accommodation to avoid the need for a similar day trip.

Wohoo!!...been looking forward to seeing some rugby for months and here we are only 4 big sleeps away

So let's get cracking with some well informed predictions based on form and which way the wind happened to be blowing up at the airport this morning:

Nottingham 5 v 0 Yorkshire Carnegie ... no brainer really considering the absolute turmoil that has been going on in Headingley. Anything other than 5-0 would be a huge shock

Ampthill 0 v 5 Coventry ... Cov had a cracking season last time out and will want to have an impact early on against the 'newbies' even though we are only in the Cup Group stages.

Bedford Blues 4 v 1 Ealing Trailfinders ... Cracking game first up. Going to be close I think and Blues may just scrape this one, but an open encounter nevertheless.

Cornish Pirates 5 v 0 London Scottish ... Long way to travel for a season opening cup game and I think that the Pirates at home will just be too strong. I do expect LS to improve as the groups progress

Doncaster Knights 5 v 0 Hartpury RFC ... I can't see the West Country 'imports' playing in this one, so a hard fought, but comfortable win for the Knights.

Jersey 4 v 1 Newcastle Falcons ... Here we go then. Not too sure how the Falcons pre-season has gone, but Jersey have had some good challenges with highs and lows. I expect a really hard game and a very tight home win for Jersey to complete the PL set.

Nottingham 4-1 Yorkshire Carnegie -I hope it's a good game and no one gets hurt.
Doncaster Knights 5-0 Hartpury I don't expect many Barbarians to turn out for cup matches so banker bonus point home win.
Ampthill 1-4 Coventry Could go either way but Cov to have a great season.
Bedford Blues 2-5 Ealing Trailfinders Tie of the round by two great attacking teams but Trailfinders will want to start really strong
Jersey 5-1 Newcastle Falcons Banker home win and Jersey to hold Falcons to a single losing bonus point
London Scottish 1-4 Cornish Pirates These two sides usually put on great contests and the end result could go either way.

Am waiting till teams are announced a couple of sides are using this as a warm up for the league and still suspect YC will turn up with some extra Dr / Loanees although they may save their cash and introduce them at the start of the league matches

They will `loan` players from other clubs during the league fixtures throughout the seasonCry

Finally the waiting is over:

Nottingham 5-0 Yorkshire Carnegie - Hopefully Notts start well
Doncaster Knights 5-0 Hartpury - It will be interesting to see Hpury squad, Knights better than last year..
Ampthill 4-1 Coventry - Great start for Amps
Bedford Blues 2-5 Ealing Trailfinders Tie of the round by two great attacking teams but Trailfinders will want to start really strong - agreed
Jersey 1-5 Newcastle Falcons Pre-season opener for Falcons, but expect they have too much for a very good Reds team
London Scottish 1-5 Cornish Pirates Pirates stronger than last year, think Scottish might struggle this year.


Run with it

Thanks CC, I shall revise my prediction:

LS 2 - 5 Pirates ... A long way for the Pirates to travel, but I think that they will still have too much for a LS side that will give it a good go up to the final whistle. Could be a few points in this one.
