Today (Sunday 18th August) at Llandrindod the county team were beaten by South Glamorgan in the semi final and sadly missed out on competing for the title this afternoon.

M.B.A. Division 1
RTB maintained their 100% record but only just with a count of four on the last end to win by two at Machen 12-2. Bedwas make a strong claim for the runners up spot after beating Beaufort 12-2 at home.
