Bowls: England maintain control
Tuesday 11 August 1992
Ottaway and Allcock had to work hard, and only a five on the last end gave them victory. Life for Bell, Roy Cutts and Andy Thomson was a lot easier against Mike Smith, Paul Ingroulle and Ken Mellor. After 15 ends they led 23-3, restricting the Channel Islanders to three singles, and even the loss of a four on the 16th hardly mattered.
Stevie Adamson and Sammy Allen stretched Ireland's winning run to five when they crushed Singapore 36-9. Earlier, in the triples, Victor Dallas, John McCloughan and Ernie Parkin came back after dropping singles on the first two ends to give Ireland victory over the Cook Islands 25-8.
Scotland's Richard Corsie and Alex Marshall scored a stunning 35-7 pairs win over Guernsey's Adrian Welch and Mike Nicolle, and later added a 29-17 victory over over the United States pair, Frank Souza and Merton Isaacman. Angus Blair's Scottish triple beat Argentina 30-18.
For Wales, Robert Weale and Will Thomas overcame Guernsey 23-12, and the triple skipped by Spencer Wilshire beat Norfolk Island 22-14.
