A repeat performance for Nottingham in the return tie against the two-time defending Scottish Premiership champions at the Greenyards this weekend (Saturday, December 15) will keep hopes of going on a Cup run alive heading into the New Year.

The Green and Whites have it all to do to progress to the second stage of the cross-border competition with Doncaster and Welsh Principality Premiership side Llandovery sitting equal top of the group on 10 points.

Nottingham are within striking distance of the pacesetters, four points adrift in third place with three Pool 8 games still to play.

The trip looms as another milestone moment in David Jackson's career, with the trip centurion touching down for his 99th career try in last week's comprehensive 54-24 victory.

Llandovery 3 2 0 1 70 51 10
Doncaster 3 2 0 1 72 56 10
Nottingham Rugby 3 1 0 2 88 79 6
Melrose 3 1 0 2 68 112 5
