If you've been reading these comments, it won't take too much intelligence to work out where David Moore came: second (for the fifth consecutive round!!). Once again though, Robert Macrae again came in first, meaning that Moore's lead has been halved over the previous two rounds. However, Round 9 will be the last round, so Macrae will need a good performance to take the title.
