Bedford 4-1 Jersey - Bedford at home crowd or no crowd a tough proposition
Doncaster 4-1 Pirates - Loss of outside half to hurt Pirates, unless Cargill is fit
Nottingham 0-5 Coventry - Nottingham going to struggle all year
Ealing 5-0 Hartpury - Ealing to keep on trucking
Richmond 0-5 Saracens. Close up to 60 minute mark

I'm predicting rolling mauls win against other style of try scored! Although Ampthill are resting this week Wink

If you are still referring to the Pirates/Bedford game I wonder if you actually watched it as there were seven tries in that game and only two were Rolling Mauls, one to Pirates and one to Bedford.

I thought it was a general observation that Rolling Mauls would be the cause of a high quantity of the tries across the weekend - but then I am trying to be glass half full, rather than half empty.

I am looking forwards to the Knights vs Pirates clash this weekend where we will hopefully be having fast flowing rugby, no injuries, good officiating and we widen the gap on Sarries (Sorry CC I still feel that they have not received punishment for their improprieties, yet, and an additional season down here would just about suffice).
Onward and Upwards C'mon Donny!

It wasn't a comment particularly on the Pirates vs Bedford game, and yes i watched every minute of it.  It was more an observation of the comments from all games really.  Seems to be the route one, safe option to score a try which is a little tiresome. Especially in a season where for all but a select few its a freebie

I feel I must respond to Bedfordian's comments on scoring tries from rolling mauls, even quoting Ampthill in his comments. If Ampthill get a penalty say on the half way line, and kick to touch to get an attacking lineout only 5 to 10 metres form the opposition's try line, then win that lineout, form a rolling maul, and stroll forward and score a try, then I for one am a very happy bunny. Scoring tries is what it is all about and Ampthill are skilled at this ploy. So they use it.

What Ampthill don't do is kick for goal when in range. Now that would be tiresome.

They do have a Good kicker. He seems to nail conversions. But I am convinced that if Ampthill were playing Saracens and the score was 0-0 in the 79th minute, and Ampthill get a penalty bang in front of the posts, they would kick to touch to set up a rolling maul.............

I'm also minded to now predict a Jersey win as well mate but I think the Jersey forwards will be the key difference between the teams  even with a back row without a natural open side flanker in the Jersey side.
