Predictions:
Bedford 5 - 1 Doncaster - watching Donny yesterday I’ve not got a good feeling about this fixture. If we don’t improve it will be the same story as at Cov.
Nottingham 1 - 4 Hartpury - A very close one but I’m going for Hartpury after their convincing win over Pirates.
London Scottish 1 - 4 Ampthill - A’s never as strong away from home but they’ll have targeted this one. LS are a work in progress.
Coventry 5 - 0 Richmond - Coventry at home will respond to yesterday’s loss. Richmond will be very competitive but maybe just overpowered in the last 20. 
Cornish Pirates 0 - 5 Ealing - Can’t believe I’m writing this about Pirates at home but they’re not the side of the last 2/3 seasons. I hope I’m way out but Ealing comfortably for me. We need some of the Saracens spirit to reappear.

Blues 5-2 Donny my game of the week between two cracking teams loads of tries and could go either way but at home I just go with Blues

Notts 4-0 Hartpury At home Notts by 10-12 points

Scottish 4-1 Amps Could go either way but Scottish improving and due a win

Cov 4-0 Mond At home Cov by 12-15 points but Mond will make them earn it

Pirates 5-2 Ealing Probably the two best teams in the league - If Trailfinders are going to lose an odd one this could be it. 

Dont kick it. Pick it up and GO FORWARD.

Bedford 5-2 Doncaster. If the Bedford backs are released this could be a try fest.
Nottingham 4-1 Hartpury. A good result for Hartpury this week but back down to earth next week methinks.
L Scottish 1-4 Ampthill. Why not.
Coventry 5-0 Richmond. Coventry to punish Richmond following this week’s result.
C Pirates 2-5 Ealing. Probably the game of the week.

Bedford 1-4 Doncaster. Bedford seem vulnerable to rolling mauls
Nottingham 1-4 Hartpury. Nottingham imploded at the RAG. Hartpury are tough.
L Scottish 4-1 Ampthill. Scottish improving and at home
Coventry 1-5 Richmond. Mond have found their mojo.
C Pirates 2-5 Ealing. Pirates defence is porous.

Predictions, if this fuel stupidity doesn’t change should matches be rescheduled or be behind closed doors?

Lights blue touch paper and runs.
Looking forward to new beginnings.

I have to say that I have changed my predictions since i have seen the weather forecast for the weekend, especially Saturday. Needless to say that I am delighted that Jersey are not playing this week as it doesn't look pleasant...either to play in or watch!!

Bedford 1-4 Doncaster....What a tough opening 2 games for Bedford who have/are playing sides who do not match their style of play. Add the weather into that and I have changed a BP win for the Blues to a tight, forward dominated away win for the Knights. I hope that I am wrong as Bedford deserved more out of their game last weekend.

Nottingham 4-1 Hartpury...This could be 4-1 either way, but will stick with home advantage.

L Scottish 1-4 Ampthill...Ampthill have looked quite good so far this season and I fancy them to win this one as well, but LS will warm into this season and the conditions could be a good leveller. Expect a tight game here.

Coventry 4-1 Richmond...Another good game on paper, but i think that Cov will prove too strong against a Mond side who never ever give up.

C Pirates 4-1 Ealing...One of the big games of the season this and I would have normally put this down as an away win. However, Pirates do like to be the underdog at home and they do like a bit of mud. If the forecast is correct, the pirates could just blaze the trail....finders

Good luck everyone. Stay safe, stay dry!!
Tackle Low!!!!!

It is meant to be dry in Bedford tomorrow afternoon/eve. Amazing foresight to move the game from Saturday!

Just noticed this on the pirates website:

Live Streaming Match Coverage:   Unfortunately, there will be no live stream provision this weekend via 247 or Facebook live. This is due to the minimum operating standards being implemented by the RFU with regards to cameras and streaming requirements for Championship games. The minimum standards are not commercially viable for Cornish Pirates to achieve at the present time and so disappointingly we will be unable to provide this valued service for our own supporters and those of the away team.  Usual coverage shall be provided by BBC Radio Cornwall plus regular updates will be posted on our twitter feed.


Another amazing piece of incompetence from the RFU, who seem to be banning streaming of the league for no particular reason. Heaven forbid it gets any exposure. Add this to the list of not allowing us to sort out our own tv deal and not getting one themselves, and not allowing us to find our own sponsor and not getting one at all. Complete shambles

Absolutely unbelievable from the RFU regarding live streaming of games. It seems they are intent on ensuring that the Championship fails. The quality of the coverage is extremely good and this is so petty and arrogant from a shambles of an organisation.

If I were Pirates or any other Championship club I would just stream and then if challenged by the RFU 

I’d say well the RFU are not providing the minimum standards to promote the league and obtain sponsorship etc.  It is failing its duty.  If the RFU have time to stop clubs from self-promoting it will look very poor in the public eye and a PR disaster.

Just looked up Brandon Nansen who’s on a short term loan from Saints and he should add some more weight to the Blues pack at 121kg and 6’6”
