Exactly the same score as you got for the game on 17th June as well.

James seems to have a habit of making good players look awful with his performances. Sonia was probably a better player than the 2 gents before her, and got some good letters spots (even if they were beaten from time to time!)
As did Zarte, Tom Chafer cook, Elliott, among many others.
