Fairwater Cons Mack have taken a big step towards retaining their Premier League title after a 5-0 win against Roath Cons meant they extended their lead over their rivals to eight points with only four games remaining. They were made to work hard against an improving Roath side though, who were competitive in most of the frames, but Jason Hewett comfortably won the opener versus Phil Storer, which included a 36 break. Alan Hurley and Khurram Khan both won on the colours against Rob Reid and Clive Marsh respectively to make it 3-0 before Ronnie Allen beat Alan Wright in a close frame and a 35 break from Brian Rees completed the whitewash against Lee Cornock.

Last season’s runners-up Fairwater Cons are in joint-second place following a 3-2 victory at home to in-form Caerphilly Cons, although they were behind early on as Dan Bridle maintained his excellent form as he defeated Steffan Davies. Twm Sion Jones levelled the match with a win against Dai Rideout, before Terry Garland beat Mike Pardoe to make it 2-1. Shaun O’Connell’s victory over Ieuan Simms sealed the win, but Ciaran Paul won the final frame against Steve Flanagan to keep Caerphilly in with a chance at the top of Division One.

Taff’s Well are level with Fairwater after an excellent 4-1 win against RBL Warriors, who will be now focusing on securing a semi-final spot in the Malcolm Keenor Trophy next week. Ian Purnell won the opening frame against Simon Takata, before Glyn Jones doubled their lead after defeating Jason Veal and a 44 break from Jimmy Llewellyn made it 3-0 against Chris Johnson. Nural Khan’s win over Kevin Brown pulled one back for the Warriors, but Rob Hayes won the final frame against Geoff Sheppard to keep his side in the race.

The Cons remain at the top of Division One following a 3-2 win at Rumney British Legion, as wins for Ryan Bowgen against Tony Parkin and Dan Wardle versus Alex Ellis put them 2-0 ahead, before Dave Standage clinched the win as he beat Andy Magill. However, Paul Chichester pulled one back after beating Darren Gill and Graeme Prance gave the scoreline a more favourable outlook for his side after defeating Martyn Evans.

Mackintosh are their closest challengers for the Division One title after a superb 4-1 win away to Canton Libs closed the gap on The Cons to a single point. However, Canton started well as a 37 break from Luke Haines helped him to beat Billy Connors in the opening frame, before the frame of the night saw James Facey make a 38 break in vain as he was defeated by Carlos Schiazza. Craig Bolton then put the Mack ahead after beating Declan O’Callaghan and Eassa Din made sure of the victory as he beat James Wigmore, before Nathan Dunne kept up his good form with a win against Tony Chick.
