Collies, Rough - week 17Updated : 19/04/2017

W/PB OF WALES was held with a change of judge.

Collies, Rough - week 12Updated : 17/03/2017

APART from those sensible Collie folk who had booked overnight accommodation before Sunday judging, many rose at silly o’clock, faced long drives and some major road diversions on route to the NEC.
