There was no real change at the top of the AIPL Premier this week as the top three teams all recorded big wins. Leaders SP Blacks had a 9-3 win at home against 9th placed The Brick Slayers, with Mike Chappell, Martin Langley, Andy Taylor and captain Peter Ward all winning twice on the night. Their lead at the top was cut down to just a single point by New Zealand "B" though, who won 10-2 away from home against The Roths, who drop down to 7th place. The away side went 5-0 up and didn’t let up, as Larry Baker, Doug Campbell, Paul Kanchanlall and Ade Lansdown all won twice on the night. Third placed The Swan also had a decent win this week, with a 9-3 away win against 8th placed Honey Bee Stingerz, with David Gray, Marc Reading, Luke Butler and Dan McIntyre all winning two frames each. Shootpool Sharks came back from 3-1 down early on to win 8-4 in the battle for fourth place against rivals Shootpool 'A', thanks to two wins each for Chris Mottau, Robert Mutch and Kyle Wilks. And finally, bottom side Top John recorded their second win of the season, as two wins each for James Wood and Max Burgess gave them a 7-5 win over New Zealand 'A'.
