MxB were the sole team to fly Mx flag. It was hoped that they would have been joined by their sister teams MxA and Mxu1825 but both fell by the wayside in the SF. MxB had already played Oxfordshire in the Group Stage so this was a rematch one of four to take place at the National Stage. Oxfordshire were the slightly stronger team the first time the pair met but with MxA being eliminated and the nominations determining who could represent MxB it was expected that MxB would be significantly stronger as Yogit and Colin would be playing boards 1&2 whereas Oxfordshire would still have Arya Cont on Bd1. Arya defeated Ian the first time the two counties met however Yogit will be a tougher proposition as to date he has a 100% record against  those who outgrade him including an impressive win against Berkshire's Dino Sujoldzic. Nigel may enjoy playing further down the board order but having defeated Michael Handley in the first match he may be tempted to make it a double. Nigel then has a decision to make personal glory or team glory? Will the captain be swayed by Nigel's ambition? The match report will give an indication but for the moment the result for MxB is Mx win 17-7.

Not only does this mean they are National Champions but they are ones in style as attained a perfect season P7 W7!

Congratulations to all
