According to the fixture list on the offy :
Bristol H on Sat 27th Oct
Wasps A on Sun 4th Nov
Glaws A on Fri 9th Nov
Tigs H on Sat 26th Jan

Still not sure what happens in the 2 weeks after that before the final in mid March.

Looks like it.

Wasps site has the same date for your match, and ones that work with the Bristol & Gloucester ones. They play Worcester in 2 Feb 2019 though for their extra game.

What kind of structure is this competition? play a random collection of games then pick the semi-finalists out of a hat?

Checked all the other clubs can't see anyone except you and Wasps with them up yet.

This is a weird competition and no mistake. Three groups with four to qualify. So a second place gained in groups where you dont play each other. Why on earth not four groups of three playing two teams home and away? Not its not great either!

Nice work from Prem Rugby to rustle up yet another bizarre competition format.

Back to the basic problem, some clubs have 2 home games, others have just 1.

Not sure that some people have read this?
Seems to me there are 4 games, two home two away. Play each in league and then a derby game.
That bit seems unfair as some Derby games will be not so close games?
I wonder how the second place team is determined from the four groups, anyone found that out?

Pointless competition, really wonder how this provides any excitement. Don't think I will be attending any of these games.
