Unsurprisingly the two teams that have played two matches, Springfield and OV's dominate the leader board in the Rathbones Handicap with three Springfield players occupying the top three spots. The order is unchanged from last week as Nick Walmsley maintains his lead courtesy of a dazzling 43 not out when batting at number 10. Funnily enough he led the competition in the early stages in 2007 off a handicap of 67, and ended up a respectable 12th. Tim Corson, who shared a last wicket partnership of 63 with Walmsley stays in second spot with Danny Kearns who scored 37 in third. There then follows a trio of Old Victorians with Dave Gorman sneaking into seventh place and claims the week's highest score of 138 points thanks to his 53 not out in Farmers win over Springfield. Team mate Chris Hopwood was a close second with 132 points off his handicap of 54, who scored 689 in the same match.

At the other end of the handicap, scratch player Chris Jones got his campaign of to a good start with 112 points.
