The Plate competition in the 2015 Ken Hewison Winter Handicap Tournament pitted newcomers Tom Tyson and Martin Kapusniak against each other. The pair had just swapped places in the league with Tom dropping down from 2 to 3 and Martin climbing to take his place. A 5 point margin separated them as they started on 75 to Tom and 70 to Martin. An intriguing battle ensued with the pair trading point for point in the early stages before Tom pulled ahead to lead by 7 points as Martin reached the 90 mark. This prompted a renewed effort from Martin and he clawed back several points against the now tiring Tom before finally succumbing 100 – 98.
