in Round 1

Div 1 Leaders Mutton Madras came close to losing their match against The Biddables from Division 5

Read about two of the hands here

The draw for the Cup 2nd round can be seen below :

There are two matches still to be played from round 1

I have given those teams an extension until next week

Once those matches have been played I will add their names to the above draw in

the appropriate places and I will then also make the draw for the Plate

The play by date for round 2 of the Cup and round 1 of the Plate is 31st January 2020

All losing teams in this round from Div 3 and below will go straight to round 2 of the Plate Competition

This season the Cup competition will be handicapped in the knock out round in an attempt to level the playing field between teams of differing abilities

The details  are all in the Conditions of Contest and are also shown below
