It was a mid–table finish for the Weaver's General Knowledge questions, and lower mid table for the Specialists.

Both sets were in mid table for Entertainment – in 14th and 18th place respectively.

According to the spreadsheet they were slightly harder than average; teams scored on average 95% of their averages – 90% in the Specialist and 98% in the General Knowledge.

The spreadsheet detected a slight bias in favour of the teams that went "first first". This was more marked in the General Knowledge, where the teams that went "first first" scored on average 101% of their averages and those that went "second first" scored 95%. Overall the figures were 97% for the teams that went "first first" and 93% for those that went "second first". On an average team score of 140 this would have made a difference of about six points. There were no games with a winning margin of less than 17, so if the spreadsheet is correct then no results are likely to have been affected.
