Only watched Nick Brett v Paul Foster tonight. Gee whizz, how unlucky was Nick! He just did not get the rub of the green despite playing some brilliant shots.. Mind you, Paul Foster was on it throughout the whole game so the pressure was on Nick from the off.
The Jamie v Harry match had a good review. Both that and the Alex Marshall (who had a wild card entry this year) v Les Gillett went the whole way to 3 tie break ends which is very exciting. Stewart Anderson must have had another brilliant game to win convincingly v Robert Paxton or did the score not reflect the match?
Six of the eight quarter finalists had previously won the Singles, so we knew the standard would be high.
If Paul Foster plays like he did tonight, his long-time former pairs partner is going to be in for a hard time. The Harry v Stewart match is not going to be easy either. Looking forward to seeing at least one of them live this afternoon.
Last year the Under 25’s matches were a really high standard, so worth watching on the red button. The singles is open and last-girl standing Rebecca Morbey is up against last year’s finalist Darren Weir. It will be Darren’s 3rd consecutive final and it would be great if it was third time lucky. However, in the other half of the draw is Daniel Pool, also from Scotland, who has won the trophy in both 2022 and 2023, so he’ll be just as keen to win again and hold that trophy aloft.
Rebecca is a member of both the Under 25 and Senior International Squads who are playing in the BIIBC Championships on 9th & 10th March. Pretty good credentials!
