SP Blacks regained their 9 point lead at the top of the Premier after a 7-5 win for themselves was coupled with second placed New Zealand "B" drawing 6-6. In a tough match for SP Blacks, they needed second wins from Dave Green and Martin Langley to fight back from 5-3 down to claim the 7-5 win over 5th placed Shootpool Sharks. Despite going 3-0 ahead, New Zealand "B" were pegged back by The Brick Slayers, and two wins for Neil Bartholomew helped rescue the 6-6 draw. The Swan have moved up to joint second after they had a comfortable 8-4 home win against Top John, which included two wins for David Gray. Shootpool 'A' are back into fourth place in the table after an 11-1 demolition of bottom side Honey Bee Stingerz, as James Connor, Richard Ilsley, Andy Revie and Jon Eley all won twice on the night. And finally, The Roths and New Zealand 'A' shared the frames out as they drew 6-6, despite the away side taking a 4-1 lead earlier in the game, as a second on the night for Stuart Ladyman saved the draw for The Roths.
