When do the NL1 sides get entered into this? I'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 :
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 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'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.
