Coventry Rugby:

Fewer changes than I expected, following the two Nottingham games. Mainly returning players displacing their covers. All 3 hookers in the squad - I expet one will be back-row cover.

15 James Stokes - back to his 'home' position from wing
14 Junior Bulumakau - returns from injured wrist
13 Rob Knox - returns from concussion
12 Tony Fenner
11 Max Trimble
10 Will Maisey
9 Tom Kessell

1 Charlie Beech
2 Phil Nilsen - swaps from bench with Dawidiuk
3 Phil Boulton ©
4 Tom Jubb
5 George Oram
6 Latu Makaafi
7 Jack Ram
8 Dan Faleafa - up from bench as Ben Nutley injured

Replacements:
16 Scott Tolmie (fr2)
17 James Gibbons (fr)
18 Josh McNulty (fr) Former Cov academy player joins Cov on loan from Quins covering injured Jeannot
19 Scott Russell back from injury sauffered v Canada 10/11/18
20 Darren Dawidiuk (fr2)
21 Pete White
22 Sam Tuitupou

I really like this line up from Ealing. Great to see JCR back in at 11. Craig Willis is back at his natural spot of 10, allowing the excellent Harry Sloane to batter people at 12. Jordan Els has been a beast since joining, really shoring up the pack. Jordy Reid is a monster in the middle. I think that the only place I'm worried about is the wing, where I worry that we are a bit short on speed.

Seems that the Cov team is slightly stronger in the backs than once feared, with Trimble and Knox playing following injury scares, and Junior Bulumakau being made available. Andy Bulumakau and David Halaifonua, however, miss out through injury, with the latter now close to a recall after a long lay-off.

Pete White benches at scrum-half, with Development No. 9 Will Flinn rested. Maisey is named at stand-off, with Jake Sharp still nowhere in sight (Fenner (12) being the usual fall-back these days).

In the forwards, Bi Alo is rested, with Cov Academy graduate Josh McNulty coming onto the bench. Scott Russell (recently loaned to Mose) is on the bench as a lock replacement, with Woolford, Hutchinson and Voss still out injured. Scott Tolmie (hooker) is benched as (potentially) a replacement back-rower, with Preece, Peters, Nutley and Ward still crocked.

Offy Preview;
Predictions:
Jersey 5-0 Ealing the F9 wind straight up the hill will create a game of two halves - a day for Pembo's boot and Macfarlane to get a hat trick or Salad if Jersey have the wind second half.
Richmond 4-1 London Scottish - home advantage to be the deciding factor
Coventry 1-4 Donny - Could go either way and should be a really good game between evenly matched teams
Bedford 5-2 Cornish Pirates My tie of the round and could be 5 tries each. I particularly like Blues set up with Robling at 13. Both sides to progress and loser to play Jersey in the quarter finals please.
Nottingham 5-2Yorkshire Carnegie Should be another cracking match and go down to the wire.
London Irish 0-5 Hartpury College Unlikely but stop laughing it could happen.

This should be a real cracker of a game. Both sides look as though they have their 1st choice squads out and will be going for it hammer and tongs. Part 2 of the trilogy, let's hope that it is more about the rugby and less about the weather.

Looks like it. My first post took a lot longer than it should have due to my trying to reformat, but ultimately failing, posting, and immediately going to a second post to add context.
Ah well!

Jersey 5-2 Ealing ... So looking forward to this. Full on cup tie expected, lots of points, lots and lots of wind too.
Richmond 1-5 London Scottish ... LS to edge the away fixture, but all depends on how seriously they take the last 2 group games.
Coventry 1-4 Doncaster ... This could go either way, but I fancy the Knights to have just a bit more experience in depth for this one.
Bedford 5-2 Cornish Pirates ... This could be anything, but I will go for home advantage in a high scoring affair.
Nottingham 4-1 Yorkshire Carnegie ... Nottingham not been at their best so far in this competition and YC can be inconsistent, so will go for a tight home win.
London Irish 5-0 Hartpury College ... Carnage!....again.

Stop eating those sprouts Brizzer! Not sure this is a full on Ealing side - its the game on 22nd they must win and I reckon they will change a third of this side in two weeks time. Amazed they don't start with Durutalo who is a real force of nature on his day.

I'm a big Durutalo  fan, but he hasn't seemed as explosive this year as he did last year, and Jordy Reid has hoovered up his natural spot at 7.

Reid is real quality and an obvious open side who is a true jackal at the breakdown but adds very little in the line out. Smid is your natural 8 and a great ball carrier I would have used Durutalo at 6 and surely he will start the must win game on 22 Dec.

Mond team is one of those experimental ones with two Harlequins loanees. However a derby is a derby so they might win, especially if LS play like they did against Ealing.(which I watched)
I’m in Gran Canaria so Twitter is the best I can do for this one.

So two derby matches at the RAA. 
What strip will the Saxons wear as the away side in the Shield match?
