It was a bad start for the home side, as Ryan Burgess, Tonya Heap and Chris Boggon all won for Cotton Eyed Joes to give them a 3-0 lead. But The White Swan fought back well, and won the next seven frames without reply to completely turn the match around, and claim the win. In that run of seven, there was two wins each for Stuart Robertson and Mark Rudge, as well as a win each for James Edney, Will Hammond and Georgina Powell. From 7-3 down, Tony Coote and Zenya Heap did both win for Cotton Eyed Joes, but it wasn't enough to avoid defeat.

Weavers Warriors moved up to 3rd place in the table after they won 7-5 against 5th placed The Feathers. Michael Bailey, Adam Stoker and Adrian Barrett all gave Weavers Warriors the lead in the first half, but each time they fell behind, The Feathers equalised, thanks to wins for Steve Loudon, Ant Purdey and Joe Tite. Second wins for Steve and Adam pushed the score on to 4-4, before wins for Wayne Turney and Scott Warner gave Weavers Warriors a 6-4 lead. A second win for Ant gave The Feathers a chance for the draw, but Weavers Warriors captain Adrian won the final frame to win the match 7-5.
