So we will have an extra weekend off on the 18th/19th February as our away fixture at Old Deer Park is cancelled.

The RFU statement ( ... elsh-rfc/# )makes it clear that the results of matches involving London Welsh to date, will be expunged from the Championship table and also that there will be no relegation from the Championship this year.

The major beneficiaries of this will be Richmond who are currently bottom of the table. The fact that Welsh won six of their matches so far this season, and without their points deduction, and now immediate relegation, they would be in the top half of the table is interesting.
