Jabow was a top favorite after previous success in UK MW competitions. Little Flipper has also previouslyperformed well in UK and US MW competitions. Pipe Wench was held in high regard after their sucess in the US championships recently. Wasp Jr was viewed as a potential wild card favorite, after the sucess of the teams HW robot. However the MW was relatively untested and unknown...

Wasp Jnr V Little Flipper
Good fight. Both robots could have won it. But neither did. Went to judges decision at 3 mins. Very close. But Wasp jnr had more flips and more effective flips. Closer to winning more and in control of more of the fight. So Wasp Jnr was declaired winner and MW Champion.
