Both of the Weaver's sets scored well for Entertainment, and are ranked 11th and 12th in that respect. Most teams found both sets slightly harder than average however, and only a couple scored significantly above their average match scores. Both sets seemed to show a bias towards the teams that went second, which meant that the bias tended to cancel itself out; but because it was more pronounced in the General Knowledge questions, the questions as a whole showed a slight bias towards the teams that went "first first" - 99% to 94%. On an average team score of 129, this would mean a difference of approximately seven points.

Neither set made any impact at the top of the overall table, which means that the Ox–fford win the trophy again this year with their Specialist questions. Bad luck to the Park Timers, who gave them a run for their money, even topping the table on occasions.
