Obviously it wasn’t a 1st XV but still a win against a well drilled side who were very quick in defence in a very fast pace game which Blues appeared fitter (always helps going down the slope). Lots of big hits from both sides and a massive improvement after the last 2 weeks.

ATT was 3707

Nottingham v Quins looked like being one way traffic after 20mins, but snorts defence sharpened up and they scored 3 good tries. Quins scrum dominance and capitalising on errors made it a comfortable win in the end though. A really entertaining game.

Great performance by Blues, albeit against a scratch Tigers team. Optimistic for next season. Blues have a bit more depth than last season. Having 2 quality players at both loosehead and tighthead is going to make an enormous difference. Cam King looks a star in the making at number 8. If we can sort out the lineout, get Alex Day fit and get some luck with injuries, I think we should be able to compete for 3rd with the likes of Doncaster. I think Cov are going to be the “best of the rest” after Ealing this season.

I think the intention is to be the best of the best tbf.

What kind of strength did Saints field today?
It's kinda hard to judge some of these results.

Has anyone heard anything about a decision on how Jersey’s cancelled cup fixtures are being handled? Precedent seems to suggest that a bonus point win will be awarded to the affected teams. If that proves to be the case, Ealing Trailfinders are likely to go into the semifinals as top seeds. I bet the Premiership didn’t see that coming!
Speak softly, but carry a big stick.

I saw a lot of Tigers fans moaning about not picking a better team to play Blues, as they will likely be going away to Ealing now when they could have had a home semi.

In the past they have either given a 20 - 0 Bp win, but I also think they have stripped results against Jersey. I imagine it will be the former to have all clubs with 5 games.

I guess we have to wait until the committee meets,  as usual.

As I posted earlier on another thread.. Eurosport.com were reporting that the Prem cup rules stated that should a team fail to play a game due to "unforeseen circumstances" the result would be deemed a 0-0 draw but I haven't seen that elsewhere.
Seems a bit odd that you would earn 2 points for not turning up!

The regulations seem to permit the organisers to come to whichever decision they want.
So if they want to deny Ealing a home semi-final, they will award no points.
Cynical moi.
