RPRLTC 4 - 0 David Lloyd Raynes Park III
Another good victory for the 1st team in a match that was a lot tougher than the scoreline suggests. Well done to Dishan, Steve, David and Sean.
May 8: Div W East: Grafton (4ths) 1 - 3 Raynes Park (2nds - Nev,Peter,Antony,Adam)
A tight dramatic match, which could have gone either way, was won by RP when Antony and Adam won the last match in a deciding Championship tiebreak. Earlier Nev and Peter won both their matches. Well done all.
