Susanna and Catherine bid to the thin 4H and Susanna received a lead of KS. One needs to bring the diamonds in but there is a real lack of entries to dummy and a spade ruff is threatened. Susanna took what looked to be the best shot of overtaking the TD with the JD and when that home she was able to arrange ruffing down the KH with getting back to dummy to cash them. Well played.

Its very close going into our final match which sees us play N. Ireland whilst Scotland take on Ireland. All to play for!!!
