TT1516, Week 13

February 29th today. Superman's birthday, if I recall from my DC days. More pertinently, the final day to purchase some qar tax for the Qashqai. Quickly does it! You'd think they'd knock a few quid off if you leave it until the last few minutes, but not so. Quality web forms, though, unlike some Nissan nonsense I used last week which rejected a registration number because it contained a space character. Numpties.

Moving on. The boys, Ed and Steve and Yang, are back again, and this will most likely be Yang's final game of the season, what with the swimming. Mega, i.e. a rearranged game. Geddit? Those Bright Stars are out to eclipse us as they did previously, though there's a slight line-up change. Shining tonight are bunny Warren, palindromic Hannah (dad Nigel sitting out) and Yootha Brian. In brief:

  • good brace for Ed, coming back from 2-0 and 8-2 down to outlast fading Brian
  • great brace for Steve, grabbing his first points in three games with a hard-fought five end victory over luckless Brian
  • maximum three for top-scoring Yang, the only one of us to beat Warren

Those singles had already put us comfortably ahead before Ed and Yang added a rare doubles point with a fine win. An 8-2 victory equals our best result of the season and should go a long way to retaining our div2 status. Nice!
