I'm predicting an nsl with Deaths k at h4
12 Jan 2014 9:24AM (Tournament); 41 Readers
My prediction was correct. . But I didn't guess he would be attempting a pop along the way. Didn't get the pop but finished witha right leave.
12 Jan 2014 9:47AM (Tournament); 57 Readers
Interesting. . I thought it would have been straight to Stephen but it's Death who picks up the ball. . Middles the long lift. What will the leave be?

Garrisons h1 ball is 5yn of h2 Westerbys 4b ball is 2yw of h1 and b an k are laid up approximately peg high near eb.. Not exactly where they wanted to be as the roll over from h2 strikers ball hit the peg so it's a 2.5y reverse rush and they didn't get the wire they were hoping for

Westerby corners Mulliner rolls of h1 from c4 to a foot. Good shot
12 Jan 2014 9:56AM (Tournament); 62 Readers
Rushes back to c4 afterwards. . Still a bit if work to do but should/could be a standard tp on the cards here
12 Jan 2014 9:57AM (Tournament); 62 Readers

12 Jan 2014 10:05AM (Tournament); 65 Readers
He's peeling the penultimate ball through 6 to get it into peeling position. . Left himself sshort 30 degrees hoop?
12 Jan 2014 10:10AM (Tournament); 70 Readers
No problems. .. second peel done. At the moment partner is at 1b.. Will he swap this over with peele so he can get partner to 4b and be confident of the straight finish? Nope partner is straight to 3b
12 Jan 2014 10:12AM (Tournament); 69 Readers
Lining up the rover peel going to 3b... looks surprised it hasnt gone through. . Should be rush peelable. Hampered after 3b but copes
