He has three games down against his name, surprised nobody else could help ease the burden.

And I hadn't realised that the internal combustion engine had reached Penzance yet Wink

I suspect he assesses by watching the video of the games. No way he could cover three matches at all of the grounds particularly when the matches at Ealing & Penzance are both on Sunday and 30 minutes apart in kick-off time. Alternatively the info I found on the web is as suspect as my predictions. I've checked the web again and two separate referee sites give the info I posted but both could be wrong - could be fake rugby news I've heard about that sort of stuff.

Predictions although its difficult to know how serious clubs are taking this one:

 

London Scottish 1-4  Richmond -Mond's huge squad should help them out - I wonder who gets the home dressing room.

 

Hartpury College 0-5 London Irish Irish must have enough strength in depth and Hartpury have other priorities so a big away win

 

Yorkshire Carnegie 2-2 Nottingham Genuinely I have no idea on this one which is probably usually the case anyway I hear you say

Doncaster Knights 4-1 Coventry I hope Cov enjoy the beer, pie & curry at Elachis

Ealing Trailfinders 0-5 Jersey Wishful thinking that Jersey prioritise the cup

Cornish Pirates 5-2 Bedford Blues Surely the tie of the round could go either way two great clubs

 

Dont kick it. Pick it up and GO FORWARD.

LS 4 - 1 Mond ... Clear home advantage for this one.
Hartpury 0 - 5 LI ... Carnage, absolute carnage!
YC 4 - 1 Nottingham ... The cup could be the catalyst that kick starts YC's season (seen it happen year after year).
Knights 5 - 0 Coventry ... Coventry reserves too green for this one. A tough game, but comfortable home win in the end.
ET 4 -1 Jersey ... Both teams to rest players. ET just to have the edge, but another tight fixture against the 'old foe'
Pirates 5 - 0 Blues ... The most entertaining round of the week, however, Bedford have had their injury woes and I think that more players are likely to be rested at this stage. They will be stronger in future rounds.

We are in a different place this year. A six-week break in the league season is just what we need, nonetheless. We have a lot of very new signings and a long injury list. The break should give time for R&R, familiarisation and trying out combinations. With luck we will be able to settle on a preferred 15/22 for the last couple of cup games and be ready to start the quest for 11th place.

Not sure I would pick Donny away as tbe ideal place to start the recovery though, we have a terrible record there.
That's easy for you to say.

Much stronger Irish side than expected: 

London Irish: 15 Greig Tonks, 14 Ollie Hassell-Collins, 13 Tom Fowlie, 12 Theo Brophy Clews, 11 Napolioni Nalaga, 10 Stephen Myler, 9 Brendan McKibbin (c), 1 Danny Hobbs-Awoyemi, 2 Saia Fainga’a, 3 Lovejoy Chawatama, 4 Barney Maddison, 5 Sebastian De Chaves, 6 Conor Gilsenan, 7 Max Northcote-Green, 8 Matt Rogerson

Replacements: 16 Dave Porecki, 17 Ollie Hoskins, 18 Jake Schatz, 19 Jack Cooke, 20 Scott Steele, 21 Jacob Atkins, 22 Matt Williams 

A few in there that we had assumed were injured, which raises question marks about selection for previous games.

LI team is up. Much stronger than I would have expected to see for this. Probably want to get back on the horse after that loss to an extent. Returns from injury for Nalaga (first competitive game after more than a year out), Brophy Clews and Fowlie.

London Irish: 15 Greig Tonks, 14 Ollie Hassell-Collins, 13 Tom Fowlie, 12 Theo Brophy Clews, 11 Napolioni Nalaga, 10 Stephen Myler, 9 Brendan McKibbin (c), 1 Danny Hobbs-Awoyemi, 2 Saia Fainga’a, 3 Lovejoy Chawatama, 4 Barney Maddison, 5 Sebastian De Chaves, 6 Conor Gilsenan, 7 Max Northcote-Green, 8 Matt Rogerson

Replacements: 16 Dave Porecki, 17 Ollie Hoskins, 18 Jake Schatz, 19 Jack Cooke, 20 Scott Steele, 21 Jacob Atkins, 22 Matt Williams 

Edit - Beaten to it. True always a bit of a guessing game with the injuries. Nalaga and Theo definitely were. Can't believe they wouldn't have had Fowlie in at all so far if he'd been fit. Surely would have had gametime over the likes of Hearn and Hassell-Collins given he was favoured by Kidney last year.

Reds V Ealing 1118

15 Segundo Tuculet 14 Howard Packman 13 Lewis Jones 12 Pat Howard 11 Seb Stegmann 10 Sam Olver 9 Ryan Foley 1 Jake Ellwood 2 Alun Walker 3 George Davis 4 Harry Casson 5 Jordan Onojaife 6 Kieran Murphy 7 Andrew Durutalo 8 Rayn Smid (c)

Predictions - total guesswork I must say:
LS 4-1 Richmond
Hartpury 0-5 Irish
Carnegie 4-1 Notts
Donny 4-1 Cov
Ealing 2-5 Jersey
Pirates 5-2 Bedford

just for some extra fun how about predicting the attendances this weekend:
RAG - 850
Hartpury - 600
Carnegie - 1,150
Donny - 1,000 - if we're lucky!
Ealing - 750
Pirates - 1,300

really don't know why clubs can't move their kick-off times to take into account the Autumn Internationals. the Saturday crowds will inevitably suffer with England playing NZ at the same time.

Blues say they are taking it seriously then they announce their starting line up
 
From the starters against Pirates a few weeks ago, 3 from the backs start and 3 from the forwards. 5 on the bench were involved, so 11 out of 22.

starting Line-up:
15. Harry Davies - barely played
14. Ryan Hutler
13. Chris Czekaj - 1st start
12. Lewis Robling
11. Dean Adamson
10. Ed Coulson - we do not have any fit fly halfs that are not on international duty
9. Alex Gliksten - DR

1. Hayden King - 1st start and hasn't been seen
2. Tadgh McElroy - DR
3. Ben Cooper
4. Ed Taylor (c)
5. Will Carrick-Smith
6. Oli Curry
7. Jack Nay - DR and may be 1st start
8. Huw Worthington

Replacements:
16. Charlie Clare
17. Toby Trinder - DR from Saints - new for the game
18. Alex Penny
19. Jarad Williams
20. Justin Blanchet - coming back from injury I think, hasn't been see for a while
21. James Lennon
22. Rich Lane

With the sides selected so far, it seems that most clubs are taking this competition seriously unlike previously with the B&I cup (for most).  Trying to figure out why? 

Is it because there is a bigger prize fund at the end (unlikely)?  

Is it because there are no play off's and for most, this is the real prize for the year?

Is it because the amount of consecutive Cup games means that the gap between league and cup competition is too much and there is a risk of going off the boil?

Is it to keep the crowds rolling in?  Something the B&I struggled to do.

Thoughts?
