It's the morning of the Single Wicket contest, and rivalry between Josh and Pip has begun. While Pip goes to revise, Josh offers to help David prepare for Open Farm Sunday.

Ed and Clarrie chat to Rob. Without realising the history between Ed and Will, Rob suggests sparks might fly if they have to play each other. Ed and Will avoid each other in the first round. Josh beats Richard but is drawn against Pip in the next round. David can't see it ending well. Will and Ed are also drawn against each other, George hopes they both win. It's Ed who triumphs. Rob knocks out David and then meets Pip in the quarter finals, who beat Josh - thanks to a great catch from Tom.

Rob and Ed make the final - mega-dairy versus the little guy, according to David. As Neil gives a running commentary, Josh tries to talk to him about an American system for the poultry houses. He's done his research but Neil is too busy to listen.

Rob end up the winner. Pip and Ed agree it's not the taking part that counts.... It's beating your brother.
