With another weather front pushing in, the fish are undecided whether to feed or not. A lot fish were seen in the pegs, but skill and luck were needed to get them to feed. The Hawthorns was the venue for the match and the finishing weights were close, but Dominic Sullivan just managed to pull ahead in the final hour to win the match. Fishing hard and expander pellet on the pole at 14m, he bagged just enough to outweigh his rivals.

Results: Dominic Sullivan (peg 3), 57lb 1oz; Ray Bass (peg 1), 53lb 4oz; Tom Light (peg 7), 49lb; Titch Williams (peg 9), 34lb 3oz. Silvers went to Ron Stark (peg 4), 7lb 7oz (31lb 4oz total).
