The seniors had a long tough day but a successful one. A testing first set of boards was handled well by both teams leading to a 15-15 draw with Israel. Then they outplayed a strong Welsh team 23-7 VPs and finished by beating Denmark, who were a place above them at the start of the round. Some aggressive bidding from Sime/Murdoch and solid play from Coyle/Matheson earned them a 17-13 VP win.
Tomorrow they face France and England, possibly their toughest day, but they do get a bye in the middle.
The women are also back in action tomorrow and face Turkey and Greece. The Turks are currently lying second and will be a big test, but with the Greeks in the bottom quarter perhaps the opportunity to gain some easier victory points. But, as we all know by now, there are no easy opponents anywhere.
