Cornish Pirates (5) v (1) London Scottish It's a long way down cannot see the Scots winning down there
Ampthill (5) v (2) Cambridge Derby match and going with home win
Caldy (1)v (5) Nottingham The archers looking stronger this year
Doncaster Knights (5) v (1) Hartpury I think the boys are ready to get into some real fixtures
Bedford (2) v (5) Ealing Could go either way, I think the Blues will make Ealing work very hard (fixture of the week)
Bye v Coventry (RIP Jersey Reds) - Saddened to see, this this would have been my fixture of the week

Cornish Pirates 5-0 London Scottish. A hard fixture for Scottish to start their season with, and I think they will come away empty-handed.
Ampthill 5-0 Cambridge. A fairly local derby but Ampthill have recruited well, and after a hard time in the Cup, they are pumped up to tackle the league.
Caldy 4-1 Nottingham. Nottingham might have improved but Caldy at home are tough opposition.
Doncaster 5-1 Hartpury. Doncaster to win and score four tries, but Hartpury might get a few of their win too.
Bedford 1-5 Ealing. The same comment applies as the Doncaster game, except the away side should triumph.
Always trying to stay bright-eyed and bushy-tailed.

Cornish Pirates 5-0 London Scottish - Chiefs too strong for Quins  
Ampthill 5-0 Cambridge - - Good win for the Mob, can't see a TBP or losing BP for Cambridge  
Caldy 1-5 Nottingham - Could be the reverse outcome but favour the Archers in this one 
Doncaster 5-1 Hartpury - Tough day at Franklin Gardens but Donny will bounce back, 'Pury like to chuck it about should be a very good game 
Bedford 2-5 Ealing - Has the makings of a classic, potential banana skin for ET

Ealing team line up very impressive. It would seem that the two week break was enough to get many niggles fixed, as we get run outs from many former prem and international players who weren't available during the cup. My only concerns are that Willis is starting after not getting any game time for about five months, and is only backed up by Twelvetrees moving to 10 if needed. The other concern is that our 6/7 are both not first choice due to injuries, though our line up is going to be absolutely enormous with Montgomery at 6.

I hope everyone enjoys this one, I won't be there as some prat vandalized my car.

Cornish Pirates 5 - 0 London Scottish - Long ride there, long ride back for Scottish.
Ampthill 5 - 1 Cambridge - Depends on injury situation for Cambridge.
Caldy 1 - 4 Nottingham  - I think Nottingham could surprise some.
Doncaster Knights 5 - 0 Hartpury - Hopefully not the Donny performance from the fnal round of the cup.
Bedford 1 - 5 Ealing - This all depends on whether or not Ealing can be more than the sum of its parts. They're good parts, but I've not seen them on the field together before.

Our last two encounters at Dillingham park took place in named storms, Brian and David.
They were therefore low scoring encounters, but we won both of those.
Hopefully we can do it again in Babet.
