After one match, every team was still easily in with a chance of making one of the three finals on Sunday afternoon. On Saturday, the order of play was reversed, with the Green Section on early and the Red on Late, and by the end of the day one team had already secured a place in the finals – though which one is still to be determined depending on Sunday morning’s results.

On day two (Saturday) the matches were as follows:

Green Section (9am & 1:30pm)

The results mean that Ken Horton’s team is the first to guarantee qualification for one of the three finals, which take place on Sunday afternoon, while at the other end of the tables, the champions of 2014 are struggling with just a single win and are reliant on other teams to give them a chance of qualifying.
