An excellent 5-0 win away to Cathays Cons means that Taff’s Well B have moved back to the top of the table, as they took advantage of Savoy’s bye week, and a defeat for Cuesaders. The Llandaff team lost 3-2 to a rampant Park Cons who move into a share of fourth place after recording their 6th win a row. Alongside them are Canton Libs A and Taff’s Well A after they both registered 4-1 wins against Canton Libs B and Canton Libs Z respectively. Senghenydd beat Cardiff Cuesports 4-1, whilst Rumney British Legion recorded their first win of the season with a 4-1 victory over South Wales Snooker to move off the bottom of the table.
The league takes a break next week for the first group-stage matches in the Handicap Cup and Plate.
