Tri-Nations Day 2 Report

Scotland had mixed fortunes on day two of the Tri-Nations at Leamington Spa as they took on Australia’s Gold and Green teams.

The mainstream team shared the points as both nations claimed two wins each in the first session of the day. Hannah Smith and Claire Johnston had an impressive win 22-14 in the women’s pairs, whilst a count of three shots at the last end secured a thrilling 21-20 win for Iain McLean in the men’s singles. The para team had better fortunes and chalked up two wins and a draw in the physically disabled pairs contests. Melanie Inness and Robert Barr were narrowly defeated 9-15 in the first visually impaired pairs game.

In the second session of the day, Scotland now took on Australia’s Green team. Once again, the spoils were shared in the mainstream matches with Dee Hoggan managing a 21-14 win in the women’s singles and Stewart Anderson, Iain McLean and Darren Burnett claiming a 17-14 victory in the men’s triples to cancel out defeats for the women’s fours and men’s pairs. The para disciplines also finished all square at two wins a piece. Garry Hood and Kevin Wallace fought hard to secure their second win of the day 13-10 and Mary Stevenson and Sandy Mackintosh had a narrow 12-11 victory in the visually impaired pairs.

The third session of play proved to be challenging for the mainstream players as the Scots suffered defeats in all fours matches. Stewart Anderson, Darren Burnett, Paul Foster MBE and Derek Oliver had the closest contest of the session but unfortunately lost out 9-12 to the Australian rink skipped by Aaron Teys. Scotland finished off a strong first days showing in the para disciplines with another two victories being recorded. A two at the last end proved enough to gain John Wardrope and Glen Livingston a 13-12 win which was backed up by Melanie Inness and Robert Barr winning 13-11 in the visually impaired pairs.

Another two sessions of play will be completed tomorrow to round-off the Tri-Nations event between Scotland, Australia and Ireland. Reports from those matches will be provided tomorrow afternoon.
