As Ambridge chase a hefty total to win the cricket match against Darrington, Charlie warns Rob not to get riled by the Darrington players and to keep his head. During the match, Rob criticises Charlie, who he says has no right to tell him what to do. Sadly, Rob's caught out and the team loses by just a few runs. To Helen, Rob blames the Darrington players who went too far in 'sledging' him. Bitter Rob avoids the pub - and Charlie - and feels he shouldn't have to carry the team. Tom will be meeting the interior designer for the Bridge Farm shop on Tuesday, with Rob who's standing in for Helen. Helen explains to Pat that she'll enjoy spending some time out with Henry before he starts school next week. Pat grills Helen about Rob leaving Berrow Farm - surprised to hear that it wasn't planned or discussed with Helen. Jill gets upset talking to Carol about moving out of Brookfield, justifying it as Heather needs to be there - but Carol knows Jill's not happy. Feeling hurt by the Bridge Farm shop development, Susan blasts Pat for treachery! - she and Hazel should be ashamed of themselves.
