Without looking into the regulations I believe going into the last week the current standings are

Top spot
1. Leinster A - 24 *
2. Doncaster - 21
3. Yorkshire - 21
4. Welsh - 20
5. Blues - 19

Best others
6. Pirates - 18
7. Jersey - 17
8. Munster - 16

Still in contention
9. Scottish - 15
10. Moseley - 15
11. Bristol - 14

Fixtures

Friday

Leinster v Roth
Bris v Ulster
Nott v Cardiff Blues

Saturday

Knights v Jersey
LonWelsh v Pirates
Munster v LonScot
Bedford v Scarlets
Ealing v Mose
Dragons v Connacht
Ospreys v YksCarn

The first 3 Saturday games listed are 'head-to-heads', albeit that the losers might still qualify.

Bristol should get 5 points on Friday but will that be enough?

Some teams will have two more games after this weekend's postponements but not sure if they have any impact on above .

Just one postponement this w/e - Roth v Ealing

I don't think Roth are mathematically out of it - they could get 17 points, but BP win in Dublin would be an achievement, and they'd also need Bristol to lose or draw and Jersey to lose heavily at Castle Pk

If Roth lose in Dublin their match with Ealing is a dead rubber - in which case is it worth playing.
How big a crowd would it get.

I wonder what the odds are for Jersey and Donny to finish 4th and 5th and play each other again in the quarter finals?

I think donny and Carnegie should the other way round because donny have not lost a game. I may be wrong is it points scored before games lost ?

AFAIK, games lost doesn't come into it. Its Pool Points, Games won, Points difference, Points scored

The games of the round, with due respect to the rest. Hard to see LS getting much out of a trip to Cork to play Munster A (recent changes at LS notwithstanding), think Donny will have just too much for Jersey, that said Jersey on their day can beat anyone anywhere, and LW v Pirates, hardest of all to call. I think Pirates might just squeeze it.

Plenty to look forward to before we get back to core business.

If either Bristol or Moseley win, then Jersey are out of contention unless they beat Donny. If they do, then both will go through, so a bit to play for in that respect, not sure how the DOR's will see it though. Do you risk key players in a cup game with the league so finely balanced?....tricky one.

I expect Donny to have a near full strength squad barring injuries, that's the way Griff has played it so far.

From my s-p-a-r-s-e notes I don't think Mr Hudson has refereed a Championship match involving Jersey although I haven't checked back over the old B&I games. If he is indisposed however then "Spreaders" who is down as assessor for the match may be pressed into service. Although he retired from International matches many years ago he has refereed at the highest level.

Can't be worse than the ref at the weekend for the Dragons game. I don't think that either team liked him. Both found him inconsistent and hard to read from the reports. Not that his interventions changed the result of the game, but he could certainly have cost either side a BP. Sadly, we will never know.

Mr Hudson has been in charge of 5 Nat 1 matches this season and has issued 14 yellow cards. Both Doncaster and Jersey should remember this on Saturday.
