Ostend Open, Eight
Today we needed 3 wins to stand a chance. We started with a good win against Latvia (20-10) and then beat Switzerland 17-13. We were behind in this match but gained 20 imps on the last board when Sandqvist-McIntosh bid a grand slam and Nick played it correctly to make it. The last match against France was the most important as they were also potential qualifiers and we won this 22-8 in a well played match by our side. 4 matches to go and we can afford no slip ups if we want our ticket to the Bermuda Bowl and today the team were playing like they wanted to get there.
