Midland Bank World Indoor Pairs Championship
Introduced by DAVID ICKE
The last two matches of the first round are completed today. Last year's Irish pairs champions ROBIN HORNER and DAVID GARDINER have a difficult contest against the bright young Welsh pair,
JOHN PRICE and STEPHEN REES in this afternoon's match.
Both Irishmen are new to the TV scene and like many of their countrymen, play their bowls at the Belfast City
