World Men's Curling Championship 8

It's Tuesday afternoon so it must be China, going into this game Scotland were tied on three wins with Denmark, Norway and the USA, both Norway and USA play in this session.

The result of this game was never in doubt, though the Chinese play well, they lack experience at this level, David Murdoch's hit for two in the fifth gave Scotland a three shot lead. It doesn't sound a lot but Scotland looked the stronger team all through the game.

Scotland were four shots up after eight and stole two in the ninth when Chinese skip Fengchun Wang was heavy with his final draw, China conceded, Scotland won the game 8/2.

Norway beat Germany 7/6, France beat USA 6/5 and Switzerland got their second win against the Czech Republic 8/7.

Canada lead the table on six wins, Germany, Australia, Norway and Scotland are tied on four wins.

Rumors circulate that the team will downsize to three members....some sort of controversy about new uniforms, chums getting sacked and bad haggis. :)
