EDF Energy National Trophy, 3rd round draw

When do the NL1 sides get entered into this? I'm desperately hoping for an away tie at Henley.
Well that's our TRF Cup away day ballsed up...'loo got beat by Ealing (of all people)
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'll actually get a home fixture.
Well it didn'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 ***ans
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't be able to go, but also because it's one of the toughest away matches you're likely to face outside the top flight.
