This years cup final came down to two fierce rivals/friends when The Italian Job met The ArgoDwarfs.
The Italian Job are the form team of the competition at the moment having already won two of the four bonus weeks and they currently sit second in the league. This form was all too evident and nothing the ArgoDwarfs could pull out of the bag would be good enough to take the third annual cup final. The Italian Job eased into a comfortable lead early in the weekend and never looked like being overcome, the final score of 68 – 56 bearing testament to that.

The bookies are now considering making the Italian Job favourites for the treble as their second place behind Steaua NeedsaRest could become first in a reversal of last years final weekend of the regular season when Steaua overtook the Kirali Girls on the very last gameweek to take a generally considered undeserved title. This year Steaua have earned their place at the top and spent the last few weeks looking unbeatable but defeat to BareAssalona this weekend with The Italians picking up a win would see them fall foul of an inferior points difference and the double (that Steaua also controversially won last season) would be taken by the Italians.
An interesting battle also takes place this weekend for the final places in the play offs as the Phatties, Coops Troops, Gally City, Ac Corona and the Kirali Girls all have chances of taking the last two places before the regular season is closed down to everyone below eighth place.
Good luck to all teams with something to play for this weekend.
