Location of match: Upper Thames Radcot Clanfield RusheyDate of match: 02/09/2012Number of pegs/anglers: 104Report:26 Teams of 4 fished the Upper Thames between Radcot and Rushey. With 3 days of heavy rain the week before the match the river was carrying extra water this part of the Thames never seems to fish well in these conditions certainly with so few big fish showing these days. This match has a random draw for each section so when Drennan Red drew three end pegs they were going to be hard to beat and they did well only dropping 13 points for an easy win on 91 points and £600. 00 first prize.

Mark Pollard and Derek Wilan cling on to lead. Early reports suggest that Mark Pollard and Derek Wilan have clung on to the lead going into the final day of the World Pairs Cup. Both weighed in respectable weights from where they drew, and with a 13 kilo lead from the previous day, many believe they have done enough to cling on to top spot. “The sections we are heading to on the last day aren’t great, and with the overall result being decided on weight we cant be sure what will happen, and the competition is still wide open” Mark commented.
