With the two divisions progressing swiftly Kobus is making a charge for both trophies. In division 2, there are just three sets of pairings remaining with Kobus Nienaber in the lead from Lee Tilton and Les Hall. Kobus plays Les in their final games needing a single point to clinch the trophy, but if Les can take both points he will take the lead as Lee has to play his final games.
In division 1, all players have dropped some points. Junior Harry Gardiner leads the pack with 7/10, with Kobus in close pursuit on 6/10 and Rick Renegade on 6/12. Karl Lockett is handily placed in 4th position with 5.5/8, so it is wide open.
Full details of the RP results can be seen on the LMS.
