Pau - bad day for England Open team

Day two of the Final went badly for Englands Open team. Having started so well they were hoping to continue where they left off on day two, but it as not to be. Match 3 went OK, it was against Portugal and England won it 18 - 12. Match 4 was the first reversal, England played Gerlamy and lost 7 - 23. It continued in match 5, against Denmark, England losing that too, 6 - 24, and they have dropped to 6th position. Leading scores are now Germany 103, Norway 95, Sweden 94, Iceland 89, Denmark 82, England 77, Netherlands 77. The top 6 teams qualify for the World Championships in Sao Paulo next year, so despite this setback England are still very much in the race for one of the qualifying places.
