Match report from captain Adam Raoof

We had a miracle draw against a strong side last night – many thanks to Jonathan Landau for clinching the draw and for almost winning us the match with seconds to go, and last-minute recruit Jonathan Pein who made a significant difference.

With 2.5/5 match points the Tigers still have some way to go to reach the magic 6 points that will ensure them of 1st Division chess next season, but for now we can enjoy being top of the table!
