University of Bristol vs Trent University Nottingham Wednesday 2pm 11th March Coombe Dingle last 16 of BUCS Cup.
The competition enters the sudden death stages this afternoon when the final 16 teams from England, Scotland and Wales play to decide who goes forward to the next knock out round. Entering the fray from the Premier Scottish Division are Stirling University, drawn away to mighty Loughborough and Aberdeen University, away to tournament favourites Hartpury College.
Promoted from the lower tier for the knock out stages are Swansea, home to Leeds Carnegie, whilst Trent play Bristol today at Coombe Dingle.
For todays successful teams, two more wins brings a cup final at Twickenham. On the form of the last two games of the group stages, Bristol are unlikely to progress much further after today, having dissappointed away to Bath University several weeks ago, losing a scrappy contest in drizzle on the pitch once used by England when Brian Ashton coached the senior team. This defeat was followed by the customary hammering away to all conquering Hartpury, but one awaits the scores of todays games to come filtering through the BUCS website with all of the speed of a set of African Drums.If anyone has the good fortune to be able to attend the games today, a report on this thread would be appreciated. Alas, work commitments forbid me from watching.
