Welsh win on Saturday and it's promotion.

If they lose does it go onto the next match or can other results mean they still get promoted?

Remaining fixtures are:

17-Mar LW v BOE
24-Mar LW v Old Actonians
07-Apr Roy v LW
14-Apr Lw v Watford

I believe if we lose to BoE and to Royston, we can still get promotion if we beat Old Actonians and Watford with bonus point wins (full 5 Points), I'm sure that the management and coaching team don't want to rely on that and will be going all out for wins against BoE and Royston though.

If we win Saturday we can really enjoy the remaining three games!

If we lose on Saturday and the match points are 4-2 to Bank then we will be promoted regardless. If we were to lose 4-1 or 5-2 then Bank could still get level on points (if we don't get anything at all from our remaining three games) but they'd have to win every game by about 60 points while we lose every game by a similar margin.

That's exactly how I read it.
Also if we get 4 more points than Royston tomorrow we would be champions

Weather is dodgy. Meteorologists uncertain how much snow and where it will fall on Saturday. We could all turn up, match gets postponed (again) and we get stranded at ODP. Oh dear, how sad, never mind luvly boys. 😉

I think we only need 4 points from our last 4 games to gain promotion whatever happens tomorrow.

The coaching staff and all the club would like to get promoted in top position.

We then go into next year with momentum.

Great to hear (but not surprising) especially as the boys are playing so well. COYW!

Does our final placing determine which division we go to?

No, we will go up to London North West Three. In the early years of league rugby, Herts and Middlesex were separate branches of the tree, and both fed into the London North West region. But they merged sometime in the late-90s, so London North West Three is (in effect) Herts & Middlesex Premier. After London North West Two we will (hopefully) go into London One North, where the North West and North East regions combine, and we'll be up against teams from the Eastern Counties (Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire) and Essex branches of the leagues.

Stop me if a simple yes/ no answer would suffice.

Thanks for that Mark. Very clear route map. Hope my mobility scooter is up to trips to Norfolk and Suffolk! 😁

Pitch won't be frozen and snow due to stop by lunchtime. Unless there's a massive worsening of the weather there's no reason why it won't go ahead.

There are no further available weekends in the fixture list (Easter Saturday is ringfenced) so I'm sure both clubs will be eager for this match to happen.

It's not settling in Brentford sur la mer. Temperatures above zero cannot see no reason for the game to be called off

Win next week secures top place.

Massive achievement and great to see the player's efforts rewarded. Whole squad effort - 1st xv to Occies and they should all be very proud.

Although there were celebrations after the game there's the feeling that the job isn't done yet. Promotion as champions, 100+ league points... There's a few targets to aim for!
