Camrose 2017 Sunday

Two matches today against Wales and Ireland, with Wales being first up.

After falling behind in the first set a fine second half saw us take a small win. A surprise board found both East/West pairs attempting 3NT where they might have lost the first 11 tricks!

Next were the Irish and this time we were 30 imps down at half time. This time the comeback was not quite enough to win - we lost by 9 and the Irish take a small lead into the second weekend.
