The Fleet defeated the Wheatsheaf away from home by 6-3 but crucially missed the bonus point, whilst the Robins Nest 'A' were lucky to escape with a 5-4 home victory against the Ship 'B' to stay on level terms.

Teams have been collapsing like an MFI wardrobe against the Fleet in recent weeks but Meek's Messiahs face a real test against the First and Last in their final match if they want to clinch the title.

The Robins Nest 'A' are at home to the Ship 'A' knowing that a big win with a bonus point is likely to be needed given the Fleet's superior frame difference.

The final round of matches has already been billed as Helicopter Wednesday with the league trophy due to be flown to the victorious public house once the results are in.

The Tavern remain in third after a crushing 7-2 win against the Ship 'A' and the Commercial moved into fourth with a 5-4 home victory against the Flemington who have now failed to win in their last five matches.

The Homeless Arms went down to a 6-3 defeat aginst the Eildon and the First and Last had the biggest win of the night by 8-1 against the Robins Nest 'B'.

The Robins Nest A 'B' had a fine win in the semi final of the fours defeating the First and Last by 5-1. They will play the Tavern in the final after they clinched the deciding frame against the Ship 'B' to scrape a 4-3 victory.
