Section 4

Shane Anning Peter Hilsz Composite
Peter Wachmer Mike GittensFremantle
Slavko Perica Bernie McNamara Composite
Jim Bowden Norm Shannon Leeming
This isn't an easy section. Perica skippering well in the PL with a good lead in McNamara should be too good but I wouldn't be surprised to see Wachmer or even the Swan team getting up here

Section 7

Shane Shaw Phillip McGuiness Yokine
Alan Barker Lawrence JohnsonQuinns Rocks

Section 10

John Wright Paul Garbellini Mt Barker Golf

Section 11

Gavin Crosthwaite Jerome Clayton North Beach
Murray Wright Michael GarrettComposite
Steven Wattleworth Glenn Yabuka North Beach
Barry Starbuck Peter Cole Halls Head
Tough section to choose a winner here, I'm going for the North Beach pair primarily because of the leading ability of Jerome Clayton whom I rate highly, Gavin Crosthwaite is more than adequate to back him up

Wowsers, the section of death. No surprise people are unsure who to select, the strong pairing of Brown and McKay, plays teammate Novak with a solid leader in Faulkner.
