Silver for women's triples and day eight round-up

Kay Moran, Stacey McDougall and Caroline Brown claimed silver in the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games women's triples on day eight.

They firstly beat Canada 19-7 in the semi-final in the morning, and then they came up against a determined Australian team who thrived in front of their home crowd and took the gold medal with a 21-12 win.

It's a been a great week all round for Kay, Stacey and Caroline and they thoroughly deserve to bring home a medal after a series of strong performances.

The women's pairs are in with a chance of winning a medal too. Lesley Doig and Claire Johnston were up against it in their quarter-final against Australia but they rallied for a 16-15 win.

They were then beaten 18-10 by South Africa in the semi-final, but go on to qualify for the bronze medal match on Friday (midnight BST), where they will play Canada.

Darren Burnett beat Muhammad Soufi Rusli of Malaysia 21-13 to reach the semi-finals of the men's singles. He will play Ryan Bester of Canada on Friday (3.30am BST) to try and get to the gold medal match later in the day.

The men's fours played twice on Thursday, firstly beating Malaysia 13-12 in a tense match in the quarter-final before defeating England 19-10 in the semi-final.

Ronnie Duncan, Derek Oliver, Paul Foster and Alex Marshall will play Australia in the gold medal match on Friday (3.30am BST).
