The two leaders in the Schools Championship both had tough matches yesterday. Israel defeated Germany 19-11 while Poland beat Denmark 18-12, two good results. That allowed Israel to move into the lead on their own, 1 VP ahead of Poland. Norway scored a maximum 25 against Ireland to move closer in third place. Also scoring 25s were The Netherlands and Sweden, the former against Italy, who had been lying fourth going into the match.

In the Juniors, leaders Italy had a Bye, allowing France and Denmark to move a little closer in second and third places. France beat Norway 22-10 (there was a fouled board) and Denmark scored 25 against Scotland. None of the rest of the chasing pack managed a significant win, however, so Italy can be reasonably happy with the way things went in their absence.
