I just lost 90 minutes of detailed commentary!
To summarise: Robert Fletcher hit on the fourth turn and went to 4b. Robert Fulford missed the long lift and Stephen Forster set out on a triple but failed to get position at 3, dispersing his balls with a clearing shot, but leaving a 7-yarder for RF. Then there was a messy period with Samir failing to get going and R Fletcher hitting in, setting for Stephen. Stephen made 3, broke down. Samir missed again (18 yards) and Stephen has bounced off 4 to give Robert Fulford an easy start, with pioneers at 1 and 2.
I'll see if this gets onto the site.

England won the toss and elected to go first with K (Samir) playing a supershot to 4 yards SSW of the peg. R (Stephen Forster) went to the E bdry and U shot at R from B baulk but went off close to it. Robert Fletcher (Yellow) hit Red from B baulk and went to 4b.
Robert Fulford peeled his partner through 1 and has set off on a tpo, jaw sing Y in 4b after 3 and completing the peel before 5. He is now playing a pass roll from the N bdry, putting auto 6 yards N of 1 but wiring himself from his pioneer (K) at 5. He may have a small slice and attempts to hit it but misses. R is at 6 and the referee is called for a wiring lift, conceded.

16? (continued). Stephen (R) jawses Y in penultimate after 6, completes the peel after 1b, uses Y, the peelee, at 3b, fails to get the rush to rover, sends Y to excellent position in front of rover, sends U to penultimate, makes 4b off U and is in a good position to finish, which he does. Game 1 to Australia.

I have retained details of turns 4(continued) to 14, after which lunch was taken, however I lost all details after lunch until Samir started the turn he is now on.
Clips are R and K on 4b, U on 2. Y in play making 2b, no peels.

Hooray, that last lot apparently got to the site!
Samir continues with Y. He has sent his partner ball to penult obviously not intending to try any peels. He is slightly hampered after penult, calls a referee, copes. The leave is U 7 yards WSW of 2, k at peg, wired from U, with R ad Y on the E bdry, level with 5, with a 1 yard rush towards the peg
