The first game was won by England 26- 1. I have recorded it on paper and will try to post the details later.
We have blue skies today and the wind is increasing. About 22 degrees but hotter in the sun and there is no shade for spectators on this court.

18. R to III
I am pleased that it seems that Game 1 is now on the site for you to read. The Australian partners had long discussions during turn 17 while I was struggling with the technology. The wind has died down and the sun is out. It has become very hot, probably,y more than 26 degrees.
20. R rushes K to Y, Y to penult, makes penult with a rush back to K, rushes K to IV and rolls it to S of rover, getting rush on U to rover, makes rover, pegs out U and makes leave: Y is about 5 yards SSe of the end of B baulk, so there is much discussion, however there is no lift so R is sent to 5 yards E of II. K is on the S bdry at the end of A baulk.

I missed the re-start but Y made 1b and 2b, left R on the W bdry, peg high, and went to IV. K apparently shot at Y and missed.
27? Y sent K to 4b and attempted 3b, bouncing off to the right and within a foot of the hoop.
England win, two games to nil.
I must go to the airport to fly out, so will not be commenting again until the Bay of Plenty. Thanks for reading all this!
