Sass to Dr O after watching him finally fall over the line in a county frame - I'd give you a high five - but you'd miss!

A cue is like an extension to your arm for many players. Some people keep their's for years while others replace them every 6 months. How long have you owned your current cue?

A Team Report: London 24 - 20 Kent

Inter CountyLondon A 24 - 20 Kent A
Canavan's, 17th June 2012

Set scores: 5 6 6 7

Another win for London, which keeps us top of the Region at the halfway stage. But once again it was close and once again it was a less than inspiring day overall.

We won first 3 frames then traded 2 each before losing the last 4 of the first set (the 11th being a good break and dish from Kent stalwart Chris Hearnden).

Kent extended their lead when Jack lost the first frame of set 2 to a lucky treble on the black. Joe won his frame then Frank broke dry and left absolute Mary's on reds; when Jamie broke in the next frame on that table the exact same thing happened. Kent were taking most of their chances to be fair, but I have to admit to feeling that the gods were against us at this point, especially with the way the breaks were going.

So it was with relief that we found ourselves winning 3 of the last 4 to draw level at halfway.

Then we won 6 in the 3rd set to take the lead. It might have been 7 but Jerry ran slightly out of position on the black for a B&D, and couldn't avoid knocking a yellow in too as he sunk the 8.

So we started the last set just one frame up, and lost the next one. But a run of 4 in a row (the first time since that run of Kent's in the first set) put us in control and the last 6 frames were traded to bring the win home.

While a win is pretty much just a win these days, if we keep running things so close we're going to get found out again (as with the draw to Hants earlier in the season).

There are things we definitely still need to improve. The obvious one is that most of us are too quiet - there's too much sitting around chatting when we could be making our presence felt in support. It's not enough just to be in the general vicinity of the match we need to be watching and supporting. Also latecomers lead to a muddled and scrappy start. But the main thing is on the table where there seems to be a bit of complacency creeping in. We've got the foundations of a great team again here, and a bit more ruthlessness (by which I mean playing the right shots to get the frame won, and not minding how pretty it is) could see us winning this kind of match a lot earlier... and make us much better equipped to deal with the top teams we plan to be facing in Yarmouth next year.
