The leaders maintained their advantage,
and at the same time probably put paid to their opponents chances,
with a maximum victory over England. Second placed Norway also
recorded a maximum against Spain, but that still leaves them
almost a full match behind the leaders.
Denmark held on to third place, but by
only collecting 16 VPs, they allowed the Netherlands to get
much closer, as they were the third of the leading teams to
collect a maximum. Italy had the bye, and that was good enough
to keep them in fifth place. France lost the chance to overtake
them when they were held to a draw by Russia. Turkey defeated
Germany 19-11 on VuGraph to gain a place, and some ground.
In tomorrow’s Daily Bulletin we will bring
you an extended report on the activities of yesterday’s outings
but meanwhile here is something to wet your appetites.
