    Never actually considered the captaincy ruling. Sadly, I don't take the time to read opening posts (or full titles) of threads about pint pouring.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    So, we've got a player from each team. Sad that the team captains for the "most sociable team on the planet" a.k.a. Upper Body couldn't make it, and that Xavier Rose of the Touristas was too busy doing something else to take part.

    The competitors:

    H. Davis (Fardingham)
    L. Camps (Upper Body)
    J. Gray (Mathemagicians)
    K. Gough (Rabid Wolves)
    G. Thomas (Ninjas)
    K. Clapham (Diamond Dazzlers)
    M. Reddlapalli (Touristas)

    and representing the Masters XI

    D. Boon (Looking after the bar during Masters Games)

    THE DRAW

    Two divisions. All competitors in each division play each other. Top two in each division go through to semi finals.

    DIVISION ONE:

    L. Camps
    K. Gough
    J. Gray
    M. Reddlapalli

    DIVISION TWO:

    K. Clapham
    H. Davis
    D. Boon
    G. Thomas

    A tough draw for those in Division Two, but the honour of serving alongside David Boon is sure to drive up the performance standard.

    Boon has been installed as the bookies favourite early doors, with Liam Camps expected to ease through Division One.

    Edgy first round of fixtures gives two narrow victories

    The first round of BarStar fixtures presented two tense, low scoring affairs.

    The match between Camps and Gough set a new record for the lowest combined score in a BarStar tournament with neither player breaking the 200 point barrier.

    For Gough, the day was a mixture of disappointment and enjoyment as he became the first person to score ZERO pints poured successfully, spilling 41 in the process of serving them to customers! However, he successfully concentrated on customer satisfaction in other areas by providing the most laughs heard in a CWLand bar for many a year. His greatest disappointment will remain the fact that after the competition finished, he stayed at the bar to follow the subsequent fixture and didn't get back to his hotel room until 7am. The latest news is that the Wife was not best pleased.

    Gray and Reddlapalli provided another close encounter, with the under-age Gray providing little evidence of his lack of bar experience. Gray provided the most successful display of Cocktail shaking since a Beach Boys reinactment of the film, Weekend at Bernie's, rattling off nearly 200 cocktails whilst spilling only 13. Sadly for Gray, he lacked the experience to benefit from the Laideez, whilst Reddlapalli neglected bar service to see if he could get himself a date for the CW 20:20 Black tie ball, scheduled for the day of the finals. Reddlapalli will have some difficulty deciding which one of the harem to take, given the unprecidented success that he displayed in this area.

    The second round of BarStar fixtures saw a total thrashing in one tie, and a nailbiter in the second.

    In the first matchup in Division Two, Kingsley Clapham took on pre-Tournament favourite, David Boon and quickly found himself out of his depth. Clapham's lack of prowess behind the pumps could not be compensated with the fact he turned up with his own trolley of bar cleaning fluids - preprepared for extra speed. Whilst Clapham was wiping down the bar surfaces and providing each customer with a beer mat to place their badly poured pint upon, Boon was regailing each customer with his tales of drunken exploits in the Tasmanian Bush whilst simultaneously completing a successful pour.

    In desperation, Clapham turned away from drinks service and plouged his resources into the available skirt - and showed significant success in this area. Sadly, it was too late, and a late ditch, desperate attempt to pour some cocktails only succeeded in significant damage to the glasswear and it looking as if he'd wet his pants.

    In the second game of the evening, the host for the evening, Heath Davis took on the Ninjas' captain, Greg Thomas. If the crowds had been disappointed by the earlier game, this was to prove worth the admission money. With a strongly partisan crowd behind him, Davis took the early honours, managing to make the outline of a Fardingham Cockatoo in the head of the first pint of Guinness poured. In contrast, Thomas made an early error by attempting an ambitious cocktail, which ended up staining the carpet - fortunately, Kingsley Clapham was still at the bar, and was able to prevent permanent damage.

    As the evening wore on, Davis and Thomas engaged the crowd with rapid fire story telling, each competitor trying to outdo the other. As the session entered its last hour, Davis was narrowly ahead - by as few as 8 points. Critically, Davis was distracted by a phone call from his land lord in Ouagadougou and poured the only duff pint of the whole bout, scoring a big minus five in the process whilst Thomas had signed up a new member for the Fardingham Cricket Club. This drew things level with only a short time left to play.

    An attempt by Davis to score big points by throwing out Upper Body troublemaker, Darren Murphy did score him five points, but the process took a significant amount of time whilst Murphy attempted to sweet talk him into remaining in the bar. During this time, Thomas was able to obtain the undivided attention of all bar patrons and built up a small, but significant lead.

    As the final whistle went, Thomas had held the lead - victorious by a paltry 18 points.

    Shattered. Losing to Gough is marginally better than losing to Smith though.

    Its gonna be tough, that's for sure. My early prediction is that the winner of the tournament will come from Division Two. Geg's win was a good result for him - its a tough way back for those who've lost their first games.
