BNSDC – 2017 – Season 1 – Round 5

Premier League Round 5 Full Ladder

Please Note: A vote was taken and a rule changed was passed for the Premier League grade which states that scores of 100 to 139 will no longer be recorded.  This does not affect A and B grade; it does mean a change to the MVP points for Premier League and we are in the process of removing low tons from the season’s previous games.  At the same time we are double checking the Premier League sheets to ensure all MVP point scoring performances have been accurately recorded.  As always please email results@BNSDC.com.au if you suspect a mistake has been made.
