There seems to be issues with the names on the live boards which the organisers are trying to sort out. I think England are playing France in round 1. Some commentary here https://www.twitch.tv/theyellowdragoon

I think they are gradually sorting out the names on the live boards for the Glorney. The English girls are still all playing on two boards in the Gilbert though :shock:

Flybe have covered themselves in glory by cancelling the French flight yesterday forcing them to fly via Birmingham and travel to Cardiff through the night, hence the start time being put back two hours.

Unfortunately Scotland were two players short in the Gilbert so the cross table in the above link is not correct. I think the scores at the top are France 9.5 Ireland 9 Wales 8 England 7.5.
