With the jet-setting, cricket-loving Gyuto Monks of Tibet in town, the fixture was scheduled with the monks pitting against teams from St Patricks and the Fremantle Chamber of Commerce.

Despite the wet weather, the game was a spectacle, with the Chamber team going down by a point in their game to miss out on the finals, played between the two religion-based teams.

Again, it was a finish suited to a big international match, with St Patricks winning the cup after needing two runs off the last ball of the match and managing to hit it for a boundary.
