Many teams played their eighth and final rounds last Friday and, with the best six to count, it promises to be an exciting finish. The holders Rob Grove and Bryan Dale completed their allocation on Friday and have set a promising target of 219. They could be overtaken if Tony Strong and Bob Flay, who have one round to go, continue their excellent run.

On Friday two teams scored 39 points, with Malcolm Glass and Mike Jamieson the winners on countback from Rob Heard and Terry Jessup, who finished with a fine total of 217. In third place on Friday were Tony Strong and Bob Flay with 38 points, and a repeat score on the final round will wrest the trophy from the holders.
