It is definitely cricket weather here at the Kassam Stadium, but few are expecting such a high-scoring game as we saw last week at Headingley.

Should the aggregate score be level at full-time, there will be 20 minutes of extra-time. A tie at that point would be decided by tries scored and, if they are still level, a kicking contest. Welsh outscored Leeds three tries to two in the first leg
The prize on offer today is a play-off final against Bristol, who saw off Rotherham in their semi-final yesterday. London Welsh must win by eight points to progress after losing 38-31 in the first leg at Leeds.
