The big match at the top of the Premier this week saw all honours even, as SP Blacks and New Zealand "B" played out a 6-6 draw. Mike Chappell, Martin Langley and captain Peter Ward won twice each for SP Blacks, but second wins for Larry Baker and Paul Kanchanlall secured the draw for the visitors. The Swan had a massive chance to put some real pressure on the league leaders, but fell short of their target, losing 7-5 against 8th placed The Brick Slayers, who had Lars Bjart and Jason Hoff to thank for their two wins each. Shootpool Sharks moved up to 4th placed in the table, despite only drawing 6-6 with New Zealand 'A'. David Feore won twice for Shootpool Sharks but Dennis Walton and Kingsley Dudley won twice each to grab the draw. Shootpool 'A' drop to 5th place after slipping to a surprise 7-5 defeat against 9th placed Top John, with Liam Smith, Jack Seaton and Evan Wakelam all winning twice. And finally, 7th placed The Roths piled more pressure on bottom side Honey Bee Stingerz after two wins each for Rory Sore and Neil Roberts helped secure an 8-4 win for them.

Looking Ahead...

Hoping for a close result in the top game will be second placed New Zealand "B", who are hosting venue rivals New Zealand 'A' this week. The race for 4th place is getting closer by the week, and this week sees 4th placed Shootpool Sharks host bottom side Honey Bee Stingerz, and 5th placed Shootpool 'A' host 7th placed The Roths. Finally, a massive game that could decide who finishes in the bottom two, as The Brick Slayers travel to Top John, holding a nine-point lead before the match starts.
