all full time scores

Not 100% sure but I think that makes the 4 top seeds (home QFs) to be Falcons, Ealing, Nottingham and Pirates, with the other qualifiers as Cov, Scottish, Reds and Donny. Pairings to be confirmed - reminder that it's not guaranteed to be 1v8, 2v7 etc as draw may be adjusted to pool opponents don't play each other again. We'll find out next week...

Same points as Ampthill  scored more points and have a better points difference so it must be on tries scored ???  what we need is a rule book SmileSmile

Fairly sure Donny qualified on PT's difference (which is the tie-breaker used before tries scored). Before today Ampthill were -95 & Knights -68. The match report says that now - it may have been edited (like this post Big smile )

I wouldn't be sure about that JD - I think the draw might be adjusted & wouldn't bet on where the Reds will end up. Unlikely to be Falcons (pool oppo) but could be Nottingham, Pirates or Ealing

Ealing very sharp today. Good performances across the park. Disappointing to ship three gift wrapped tries - but I suppose it’s Christmas. Can’t afford to be that generous next week.
Speak softly, but carry a big stick.

Back from my coldest ever trip to KP and finally starting to thaw out and determined to look for the positives. For Jersey thankfully no inside Centre called Mark ended up with a broken arm or leg and although the game was a total mismatch the lads selected tried their hearts out and their heads never dropped. Although it seems likely that there will be lots of changes for the match against Scottish next week those lads in the starting 15 stood up to the big lads on Saturday and didn't buckle. Great to see Kuki make the trip and be involved with the team even if only in a support capacity - his absence has been a huge loss this year. Well done to Flybe for two exhilarating flights which got me  to Newcastle Airport by 10.15am having left home in St Ouens at 6am and Jersey airport at 7.10am - who needs Alton Towers when you can bounce around in a small plane? I'm ever hopeful that Jersey will meet Falcons in the final at KP later this season and perhaps both clubs will select their strongest team if it happens. Falcons are a proper premiership club with great support and if there is a better place to watch club rugby than the South Stand at KP I've not found it yet. Great to meet Sam, Gary & Mark again and see them play a full part in Falcon's march back to the premiership - you are always welcome back in St Ouen's lads as is Charlie Maddison who hopefully will be involved in the match down here in the spring.

Dont kick it. Pick it up and GO FORWARD.

Brilliant draw Jersey couldn't get Falcons until the final so Ealing were ideal next best. Will Jersey get a home semi final if we beat them?

Not sure CC, but imagine clarification will follow at some stage. It would be a nice (ahem) 'carrot' for the winners, although you'd think that beating our old rivals and twice holders on their own patch would be incentive enough regardless of where one ended up for the next round.

QUOTE.
 speaking to the Reds players following a first half mauling at Ealing, they said that ET really ran out of puff and another 10 minutes and they really thought that they would have had them.

"ran out of puff ".......not the first person to mention lack of  fitness at the end of the match. Maybe the Jersey reds will exploit this lack of fitness this time round. Ealing have shipped a few points at the end of games but often match the end of the game points scored tally. 
Ambition should be made of sterner stuff.

I wonder if this was the logic behind 6 forwards on the bench last weekend. Led to Craig Willis coming in to play 12. Maybe a trick from Eddie Jones' playbook. Wink

Does anyone have any inside knowledge on the potential merging of the Prem and Champ Cups? I seem to remember it was a two season deal and after that they were going to consider a combined cup competition...
