Women's Teams, It's a Knock-Out! 

Day Seven, World Bridge Games,  Saturday September 10

Having finished fifth in our group,  the draw for the knock-out stages was made yesterday evening.   Those finishing in the top four could choose their opponents from the nations finishing 5th - 8th.    One country after another made their selection but nobody wanted to play England.  When it was Italy's turn, England was the only team left.

So we are in the last sixteen playing a 96-board marathon againt Italy for the privelege of advancing to the quarter-finals when we expect to meet China.   Incidentally, China had first choice and opted for Chinese Taipee!
