Well what a weekend of rugby. Full of upsets and surprises.. Just what this league is made of so of course making it a nightmare for predicting!

Well who would have thought that four out of the top five teams would lose...
Congratulations to PlymouthClap for picking up an excellent win in the dying minutes away to Blackheath. Not so long Plymouth were in the bottom three but his shows how tight the table is when they are now lying seventh which is only 6 points clear of 14th place. 
And did mention that Darlington Mowden ParkClap can be tough beat at home so congratulations to them for beating Old Elthamians.
And again no surprise to Rosslyn ParkClap who are now the league leaders for the first time this year picking up an excellent home win against Rotherham.
And last but not least which must have been an exciting game to watch with the 15 trryfest between Esher and Ampthill with EsherClap winning by a single point.

Well now onto the prediction table.

DummyHClap are still top but now on their own clear by two point form 2CapitAllClap with fatbear and VictorClap a further two points back. Getting very tight at the top!!!!

High score of the week goes to Local PersonStar with reasonable score of 19.

High climber of the week not surprisingly is Local PersonClap climbing 8 places from 18th to 10th place.

Low score of the week goes to LongtimeDead, Old NickDead and WandererDead with a pretty poor score of 4.

Now onto this weeks game and there is one that stands out to start with.
New Leaders Rosslyn Park are away to previous leaders Old Elthamians. Based on currently form one might expect to win this with a try to spare but l think this might be a tighter contest and personally think this could go either way or even be a draw.

Bishops Stortford are now bottom and can not remember a team for a very very long time who have a positive points difference (+3 here). They have a very winnable game at home against Sale FC who were about 9/10 weeks ago were being talked as maybe surprise league winners. They are firmly mid table which in this league means only 3 points from relegation!! Think Bishops Stortford will pick up a comfortable win as they need to close the gap of 10 points from safety.

Am very curious to see how Blackheath fare away at Darlington Mowden Park. Darlington picked up an excellent home win against previous leaders Old Elthamains and will see if they pick up another scalp for the top 5. Going to go for heart here with Blackheath picking up a tight win away but head knows this will be tough!!!

Best of luck to all teams this weekend.

Top Half



Bottom Half
