New Zealandís Menís Pairs will be desperate for a win after Saturdayís loss to England, and Fridayís shock defeat by Jersey.

But they face South Africa, top of the table and full of confidence after their win over England.

The Papua New Guinea team are ones to watch in the Womenís Fours competition after their win over England on Saturday. They will take on Scotland, who are also showing class, in the morning session.

A battle of the Pacific takes place in the Menís Pairs competition in the evening, when Fiji, buoyed by their performance against Wales on Saturday, take on the Cook Islands.
