The team have now completed two of their five matches for the weekend. Firstly we played Northern Ireland, and we lost by four imps, resulting in a 14-16 VP loss. Whilst a disappointing result, we still maintained a decent lead over the other competitors.
This morning we played Wales. The match featured some incredible boards, with three good grand slams coming up, and all three being bid at both tables. We suffered a little misfortune, when we bid a good game which went down on a 5-1 trump break, but emerged victorious by 21 IMPs for an 18-12 win in VPs. This leaves us reasonably well placed, especially as Northern Ireland lost heavily to the CBAI, and Ireland and Scotland played out a hard fought draw.
We play Scotland this afternoon, then Ireland on Sunday morning and CBAI on Sunday afternoon. All the action can be followed on BBO.
