They dominated the pairs, winning 7-2 before victories for Andy Shillcock (180) and Damo Brennan edged them closer to victory.

Ali Mclean stopped the rot for the A side by beating Dave Claffey 2-1, but Jamie Preston’s (180) 3-0 win was enough to secure the victory.

The A side’s Andy Johnson and Dave Simmonds then gained consolation wins over Si Almey and Sean Kelly respectively.

The Nags beat The Bull’s Head 22-5 in what turned out to be a one-sided affair.
