Tom White’s team continue to dominate and stretch away at the top of the table and currently have 286 points. Brian O’Connor’s team have 273, just ahead of Maurice Fennell’s team. The real battle is for the fourth and final qualifying spot with just 2 pts separating four teams. Mick Cronin’s team are in fourth place at present with 262 pts and a shot behind is Andy Traver’s team on 261. im Maitland’s and Brendan O’Brien’s teams are on 260, Dermot Ahern’s team is on 239 and Tony Sheehan’s team is on 233.
We are playing until four teams pass the 400 mark and in the case of two teams passing the mark in the same week it will be the team that has the total highest score that will come out on top. In the semi-finals the top team will play the fourth team and the second team will play the third team.
