Well day 2 saw highs and lows for team Jersey.
Mens Triples started the day with a comprehensive win over Fiji 20-10 putting them within a point of winning their group. They gained that point on their second game drawing 11-11 with Brunei who put a massive fight against the boys. They will now take their bye and watch with intrigue the final group games to see who they face in the quarter final. Win that and they will have 2 shots at a medal!!
Also in action at the same time was Rachel in the Ladies Singles. After a tough first day, Rachel was looking to bounce back against Brunei. After a bright start, Rachel fell to a 21-14 defeat. Her final match was up against Wales Laura Daniels. Laura proved too strong and beat Rachel 21-11. It was never going to be an easy group but great effort Rachel.
Up later on in the day also looking to bounce back after a tough day the Ladies Fours were in action. First up was Norfolk Islands. They proved too strong for our ladies with Norfolk running out 21-13 winners. Last game Up was a tricky test against South Africa. Again another good effort by the ladies but fell 19-7 in defeat.
The ladies will now have the weekend to regroup and focus on the Triples and Pairs which start next Monday.
