Malcolm and the ladies Pairs were straight back on to face tough tests. Malcolm was up against Canada’s And bookies favourite Ryan Bester. Deja vu for Malcolm who again put a great performance but fell agonisingly to a 21-20 defeat again.
The ladies were up against Wales in a very tough much. A very slow start saw them 12-0 down after 6 ends. The fight back was on and they managed to turn it Round it lead 14-13 after 13 ends. The Welsh ladies turned on their style and managed to beat our ladies 22-14.
Up in the next 2 sessions were the ladies Triples. They managed to keep their momentum up beating Namibia 15-12 in their first game of the day.
The tougher test was to come in the form on New Zealand. After 10 ends it was proving to be a close contest with New Zealand leading 8-7. In the end New Zealand proved their superiority winning 24-8.

Not the end we wanted to write nor the result that the boys will have wanted to see, but Jersey were edged out by Canada in the Quarter Finals of the Triples on the Gold Coast today.
We can only imagine how disappointed they must feel but hope both Malcolm and the ladies can dust themselves down and go medal chasing again in the next disciplines.
Regardless, Jersey remain proud of the showing the boys have put on on the Gold Coast and the “shock”waves they generated across Australian Media on our behalf. One Aussie rag even wrote that losing to Jersey “was a crisis”!
You didn’t let anyone here down boys!
Jersey Men’s Triples will play Canada in the Quarter Finals at 7.30am on Saturday.
Other draws are Australia v New Zealand, Scotland v Wales and England v Norfolk Island.
There is no Live Streaming nor Score Updates seemingly available which is disappointing.
The winner of Jersey v Canada will play the winner of Australia v New Zealand in the Semi Finals. There
It goes without saying that our boys have Jerseys full support – do what we know you can boys and get the just rewards of your commitment.
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.
They guys will find out their quarter final opponents at 4:45am tomorrow (UK) time and the match being played at 7am (UK) time so those early birds who catch the work can catch the live scores!!! Best of luck guys.
