Who needs a crystal ball?

Great shame no-one was running a book on the 7s because, if you will permit a certain smugness, I might have done rather well.

Looking back on my "seedings" on Monday - and discounting Welwyn and Tamworth (whose non-appearence could not be predicted)...
  • Worcester - "Seeding" 1, Winners
  • Darlington - "Seeding" 2, Runners-up
  • Wimborne - "Seeding" 3, Semi-finalist (and beat Paviors in group)
  • Paviors - "Seeding" 4, Semi-finalist

In addition looks like I also got two out of four quarter-finalists right, plus one plate finalist. Okay, after that it goes a bit awry partly because the effect of the actual draw comes in, but mainly because I had underestimated the strength of Reading and overestimated a couple of others similarly.

Incidentally, the actual draw was quite sensible this year (well, aside from the fact that three of the four cup and plate "finalists" came from the same pool!). Either RFUW were lucky or - I wonder - did they seed it this time round?
