Good performance and result, crowd wasnít bad either 2,140. Thought Lewis Roblin had a really good game along with Harry Davies, Pat Tapley scoring a decent try on his return was good to see. Hartpury were nothing like the side we played a couple of weeks ago which was reflected in the score. Having said that you can only play whatís in front of you.

Yes absolutely right about Fields one of his best games for a long time and didn't miss once in the line out. Bad news about the Cricks but not surprised.

Backs looking lively and a blossoming young scrum half to support Dickson. Agree about Jacob, always could get around the field and now line out throwing getting there. Mind you with Flanagan you have the best in our league to hit. Pat back and looking sharp, needs to build up confidence after really nasty injury. I would have packed it in after that! Harry Davis at full back very confident. Lewis at 10 where he played before looking good. Great try by Penny, really sharp the see the ball out and over the line. Onwards.

My understanding is that it will be the top three and the best runner up that will progress.

Not quite right as that would make 10 it is

Top 2 of each group = 6
Best 2 3rd places = 2
