TT1415, Week 11

Not long until Christmas, snow expected any day and the goose is looking worried. About time, then, for Defiants final game of what's been a tough first half. That Natalie's pleaded pressure of work, bless her, so supersub Steve has stepped in, bless him.

Bit of a scary fixture, this one. Britannia Eagles are soaring high atop division 2 having conceded no more than a handful of points. Hopes rise when the boy Daniel doesn't show but there's still fearsome opponents in the form of lefty Paul, ex of the Merlins, Guess Who Rob (previously), and new to us Paul. Yes, another one. In brief:

  • disappointing 0/3 for Ed, losing out to big Paul 11-9 in the 5th and getting played off the table by the other Paul
  • good 1/3 for Yang, also taking big Paul to five ends but winning the 5th
  • not unexpected 0/3 for Steve, not winning an end against tough opposition

Once more, Steve offered Ed and Yang the doubles. Won the first, lost the second, won the third, lost the fourth and, hoorah, won the fifth to double our points tally! That could be all important come the end of the season.
