Who goes down with Old Pats and Nab's is anyone's guess with just a point separating three teams.



I think it will be mightily close Barum Man! With away fixtures at Barnstaple, Bracknell and Camborne to come, plus a home fixture versus Bournemouth, I think Ivybridge have the toughest run in, whereas for Maids and Barum, that head to head clash on the 23rd is key. I can’t see how it won’t go down to the final game of the season, where Maids will have a long trip to Brixham, whereas Barnstaple will welcome Weston, who will be comfortably mid-table by then.

A fascinating few weeks coming up which could see bonus points prove vital.


One big thing in you favour 'Maids' is that Bournemouth will have almost certainly have won the league by the time you play them (not saying you would not have beaten them anyway!).




Hi Barum Man,

I hope you’re right, but I have a feeling that Bournemouth will be gunning for us, after we dispatched them at our place before Xmas. 5 tough games left, can’t wait!

Cheers
I remember when Rams won the league  4 seasons ago 'Maids' - we were in the bottom half and played them last game of the season when it was done and dusted - they rested a few and others were not fully committed, we beat them 39-7 (coincidently exactly the same score we beat you earlier in the season - just saying Wink)

You have had a great season Paul - some new places to travel next season. I guess it will add to your travelling time/miles but at least only Plymouth Albion in the far south west.

The Chickens are being counted just yet at Rams......... Smile I  don't do too many away trips these days, but yes, I think the team will have a number of overnight stops needed next season if the unmentionable happens. Looks like it'll be an exciting run in to the Southwest league, good luck to the mighty Barum Thumbs Up

Congratulations to Newbury on promotion from SW1E. The play off place is still being hotly contested. 

In SW1W, it's a real tight race between Oakhampton and Launceston for the automatic promotion spot.

In SW1 East despite their loss to Newbury in their last match the play off spot is still Old Cents for the taking. They have a decent run in but probably the key game for them is at 5th placed Wootton Bassett who are still on with a shout themselves.
If they slip up in any of their 4 games it will let Banbury in to the play offs again (having lost to Exeter Uni last Yr) as I think they will win all their remaining games as they they have 3 of the bottom 4 plus mid table Wimborne to play.
What is pretty certain is whoever of Okehampton or Launceston comes runners up in SW1 West will have home advantage in the play offs.

Well done to the Blues - have not seen them at Barum since the 2011-12 season so look forward to welcoming them at Pottington Rd next season.

Thanks Barum man looks like there will be a few long trips to Devon & Cornwall for the Blues next season but looking forward to it. Of course we may not play at Pottington Rd if you make it up via the playoffs! #Goodluck

So its Barum that will be in the play off (surprised Maids lost at home). The way WSM are playing at the moment it is just as well that it did not come down to the last game as it should be a close fought game at Pottington next week.
It looks like Barum will be away to either Wimbledon or Westcliff (It is theoretically possible that Barum could be home in the play-off but highly unlikely).

It is looking like Birmingham & Solihull, Guernsey and London Irish Wild Geese are coming down from Nat2S - none of these sides are naturally in the South West area so someone is going to be level transferred from either the Midlands or London division by the looks of it.

Invariably teams that are relegated go back to their normal region & a different team from those regions moves unless of course they volunteer to move. Let's see what the RFU decide.

I can't see either Newbury or Okehampton being level transferred due to their locations.

You can be level transferred when promoted but NOT when relegated (unless volunteering)
If indeed SW Prem Look like being a club short other threads seem to suggest the transfer will be from Midlands not SE which puts Luctonians (Leominster) very much in the mix if they were to lose their play off game with Blaydon for a place in Nat2 or Bromsgrove who had a season in SW very recently

I wondered how Barum would approach the Devon Senior cup final against Exmouth today in view of the play-off match next week but they put out just about their strongest team and were well up for it. Luckily the game was won by half time so they could take it a bit easier in the second half. Any way it was a super afternoons rugby played in glorious weather in front of a very large crowd.

Could it be that it was a seen as a priority over next weeks play-off game !!!, certainly most fans I have talked to are not overly keen to see them return to Nat2 at the moment for both financial and playing strength point of view, But I guess the players themselves and most club officials will always want to play the highest level they can and that's fair enough. Barum must be clear second favourites next week but you never know.

You are probably correct, that Barnstaple will be the underdogs as they are away.

I know a number of Raiders fans who wish you well and hope you return to N2S as we enjoy our weekends in Devon
