They are al­ready through to the pairs fi­nal, with Camp­bel­town’s James An­der­son and John McLean play­ing some top-drawer stuff to over­come Guernsey 29-16 in the pre­lims fol­lowed by a top-class en­counter against Ir­ish cham­pi­ons Barry Browne and Martin McHugh that ended 23-13 to set up a ti­tle clash this af­ter­noon against Eng­land’s Ryan Boots and Brian Howard of Cal­i­cot.

The Scots also line up this morn­ing in the triples and se­nior fours semi-fi­nals against Eng­land and Jersey for a fi­nal berth later in the day, with ei­ther Jersey or Ire­land wait­ing in the wings in the triples and Ire­land or Guernsey in the se­nior fours.
