Predictions:
Hartpury 4 v 1 Coventry - Coventry always seem to struggle in games like this, home win.
Doncaster 2 v 2 Jersey - Genuinely don’t have a clue about this one. Jersey have had a week off, help or hindrance?. We’ll find out on Saturday.
Ampthill 1 v 4 Bedford - The tough ones keep coming. Just fancy Bedford.
Ealing 5 v 0 Nottingham - How much will Ealing’s confidence have been dented by the loss today?. Not enough for an upset in this one I don’t think.
Richmond 4 v 1 London Scottish - Another absolute cracker of a game. A Cup final for both teams. I think Mond will claim the bragging rights. 

This is one of those rounds where I wish I could see at least 3 games. Genuinely don’t know what the MOTD is here, and yes, this is the week when I think there is a fair chance of a draw, maybe more than one.

Hartpury 4-1 Coventry - I agree with Donnyknightfan. Coventry have a strong squad but they keep tripping up.
Doncaster 4-1 Jersey - And after just three games I am predicting that no side will have a 100% record.
Ampthill 5-2 Bedford - A big crowd, and another high scoring game. I just think the Ampthill forwards will score more tries than the Bedford backs.
Ealing 5-0 Nottingham - Ealing at home will be too good for Nottingham. Or so they should be.
Richmond 5-1 London Scottish - Richmond are a bit of a surprise package so far and I expect them to take the local bragging rights fairly easily.
Always trying to stay bright-eyed and bushy-tailed.

Pury 0-4 Cov Class and power to tell Cov by 10-12 points
Donny 2-5 Jersey In my dreams Jersey to pinch a close match on a cracking pitch - wish I could be there
Amps 4-2 Blues Home advantage to give Amps the edge by 3-5 points but Blues to score more tries
Ealing 5-0 Notts No contest banker which must give Notts a chance
Mond 5-0 Scottish The most local game of all Mond all the way

Dont kick it. Pick it up and GO FORWARD.

Strongish squad, yes, but half the first-picks are out with long-term injuries ATM.
Most of the starting side on Saturday didn't look like they'd met each other.

For the ordinary purposes of conversation, a superficial knowledge of many things goes further than an intimacy with one or two.

Hartpury 1-4 Coventry - Hartpury better than expected, but Cov too much.
Doncaster 1-4 Jersey - Jersey seems to have recruited very well, and Donny have been a bit inconsistent.
Ampthill 4-1 Bedford - Ampthill at home is a tough out, and they've generally had the upperhand in the Battle of Bedfordshire.
Ealing 5-1 Nottingham - Still stinging from the loss last week, I think that Ealing will come out all guns blazing, but still leak some tries due to over aggressiveness.
Richmond 5-0 Scottish - Scottish a work in progress.

Hartpury 1 - 4 Coventry … Tricky to predict this one. i think that Cov will have too much in the tank, but you just don't know at the moment. regardless, I think that it will be a close game.

Doncaster 4 - 1 Jersey … Talking of close games. Rarely more than a few points between these two sides and more often than not it will be a draw. Battle royale up front. I have gone for home advantage in this one for no other reason. Wish I could be there!

Ampthill 0 - 5 Bedford … Bedford up and running now (literally). I know that it is a local derby and the atmosphere will be electric, but I think that the Blues will turn it on.

Ealing 5 - 0 Nottingham … The wounded animal to bite back and probably very hard.

Richmond 4 - 1 London Scottish … Talking of local derbies, they don't come more local than this. Mond might just squeeze it, but I certainly wouldn't bet against LS opening their account for the season.

Good luck all.
Tackle Low!!!!!

Good to see Dan Richardson getting the start for Cov, albeit disappointing that Tigers appeared to farm him out on loan within a couple of weeks of him leaving his previous Championship club (Jersey). Quite a bit of ex-Red presence, with Tom Howe and Josh Bainbridge in the XV...

Hopefully Howe will have learned from last week and won't kick away possession so poorly this time!

Brilliant to see TJ back - even on the bench.

I would be really frustrated as a Jersey fan with this situation. You give your blessing for one of you best players to leave for the prem just before the season starts, only to see him play for one of your rivals for free. It’s logistically a bit more difficult but you’d think they would’ve loaned him back to Jersey.

I agree BM - that is one of the frustrations when we lose players to higher levls and then they go out on loan to other clubs - there should always be a clause that if the player is to go out on loan the club they left from should get first shout on having them back on loan.
Onward and Upwards C'mon Donny!

Nice thought but most premiership teams will loan players out to nearby clubs to get game time and inevitably the travel difficulties of lending players to Jersey limits the prospects of it happening.
