The Rugby Football Union has confirmed that play-off teams Bristol, Leeds Carnegie, London Welsh and Rotherham have satisfied criteria for promotion to the Aviva Premiership.

Ashton Gate (Bristol), Headingley Carnegie Stadium (Leeds Carnegie), Kassam Stadium (London Welsh) and Oakwell Stadium (Rotherham Titans) are all stadia that fall into line with the RFU's Minimum Standards Criteria (MSC).

Bristol, who finished the season top of the Greene King IPA Championship, host fourth-placed Rotherham in the first leg of their semi-final on Saturday, while London Welsh (third) travel to runners-up Leeds Carnegie the following day.

The return legs, Rotherham v Bristol (May 17), and London Welsh v Leeds Carnegie (May 18) will determine the participants of a two-legged final, the winners of which will replace relegated Worcester in the top-flight.
