When do the NL1 sides get entered into this? I&#39;m desperately hoping for an away tie at Henley.

Sometime after the 8th I imagine...I think the games will be played on Jan 12th.

The wiki entry seems a bit of a mess in regards to who goes in when though :

Still a number of teams who I could easily get to an away fixture for. Henley are there, Blackheath, Ealing and Richmond are only short hops - knowing my luck we&#39;ll actually get a home fixture.

Well it didn&#39;t take long for my dream to be shattered. The draw for the 4th round of the competition is as follows:

Blackheath v Halifax
Cambridge v Rotherham Titans
Doncaster Knights v Richmond
Esher v Worthing
Henley v Plymouth Albion
Moseley v Birmingham & Solihull
Mounts Bay v Coventry
Nottingham v Newbury Blues
Nuneaton v Launceston
Otley v Bedford Blues
Cornish Pirates v Northampton Saints
Preston Grasshoppers v Blaydon
Redruth v London Welsh
Sedgley Park v Ealing
Tynedale v Manchester
Wharfedale v Exeter Chiefs


Not particularly pleased with our draw, not only because I won&#39;t be able to go, but also because it&#39;s one of the toughest away matches you&#39;re likely to face outside the top flight.
