England Seniors big favourites to win round robin
England Seniors surged ahead of all their rivals yesterday, just as I predicted they would. Today is the final day of the round robin, and England start the day 22.5 vps ahead of second place Belgium. They have one hard match today, USA 1 who are 6th. They need just 53 vps from their three matches to day to be certain of winning the round robin, and I'll stick my neck out again today and say I predict they'll win the group and finish between 15 to 20 vps ahead of 2nd. Winning the group will give the team a very useful advantage going into the knockout stages, as it will enable the then to choose their opponents for the quarter & semi finals.
