London Welsh head to Moseley having won on their last five visits to Billesley Common, but at least the Birmingham side will be spared the sight of last

season’s tormentor- in- chief, Fijian flyer Josh Drauninui, who scored four tries in a 68-22 victory before signing for Worcester in the summer. Instead, No.8

Ed Jackson is the man to watch: the No.8 stands joint top of the Championship try- scoring charts, although he failed to add to his tally in last Friday’s 3-37

win over Esher.

That victory sent London Welsh top of English rugby’s second tier for the first time since the introduction of league rugby in 1987. However, a hard- fought

derby win for Cornish Pirates over Plymouth ensured their stay at the summit lasted for less than 24 hours. The Pirates will look to maintain top spot with

victory at home to Bedford Blues this weekend. The sides have met 24 times at this level, the Duchy outfit being in front on the head- to- head count by 13

wins to Bedford’s 10, with one draw during the last eight seasons of competition.

Nottingham won on Bristol soil in the British & Irish Cup last season; however the West Country side look a much tougher proposition 12 months on and they

go into the weekend buoyed by a last- gasp win away to Bedford. Elsewhere, London Scottish play host to struggling Leeds Carnegie, and there two games

in South Yorkshire with both Doncaster and Rotherham at home to Plymouth and Esher respectively.
