Ealing Trailfinders will require help from elsewhere if they are to be crowned RFU Championship winners as the league season comes to a close this weekend. 

The Trailfinders finish their season against Doncaster Knights but will be paying close attention to what happens in the Jersey Reds vs Ampthill game as after defeat against their title rivals last weekend they need an away win. 

They still need to take care of their own business against a Doncaster team who have lost five of their last seven to fall down to midtable. 

Kick-off at Castle Park is at 2.30pm on Saturday. 

London Scottish will hope to finish their season on a high with a third straight win as they face Nottingham this weekend. 

Scottish have got wins against Hartpury and Richmond in their last two to give some hope to finish the season on a high which has largely been disappointing. 

Nottingham are another side who have had a season to forget, sitting 9th in the RFU Championship, but they could win a third straight home game with a positive result this weekend. 

Kick-off at The Bay is at 7.45pm on Friday. 

Teddington RFC are one win away from a game at Twickenham Stadium if they get the better of St Ives in their cup semi-final. 

The Antlers have won 25 games out of 25 in all competitions so far this season and if that dream run continues this weekend, then they will be going for a league and cup double in their home borough. 

St Ives are not to be taken lightly having made it to this stage and they won Counties 2 Tribute Cornwall at a canter with 20 wins from 22 matches and got an attritional 9-6 win in the quarter finals against Gordon League last week. 

KIck-off at Met Police RFC is at 2.30pm on Saturday.
