A fabulous three here and there saw them at 6 to 16 on the 10th end. Tommy and Rob responded the best way possible by winning 2 ends by 4 shots to be home and hosed, you would think, with 24 shots to 11 by the 14th end.

The penultimate end saw them take the lead for the first time in the game when they won it by 3 shots to go 25 to 24 up. Could Tommy and Rob recover their confidence to win the last end by 2 shots? No, they won the last end by 1 shot to draw the game at 25 all. Who would win the count back? It was close! Roy Cartledge and Trevor Wright won the game by 11 ends to 10. What a comeback!
