Is relegation on the cards if we lose to Herts ?
No as the record of the six counties in the pool is taken over a two year period - last season and this season - therefore, despite the fact they won last Saturday, Devon are already relegated. It's between Gloucestershire and Hertfordshire for the place at Twickenham for the Southern region. If Gloucestershire win at Esher against Surrey then they will be at Twickenham regardless of what Hertfordshire do.
The next two year cycle of the Bill Beaumont Cup will begin next season with one county replacing Devon (the county in Division Two South with the best record over the two year cycle - Hampshire Warwickshire, North Midlands and Somerset are in that group), and the next relegation going in for the end of the 2019/20 season.
