A good roll-up on Tuesday of 20 players, but no familiar sounds of “play another one like that and I’ll never forget you” coming from Scobie and the explanation lay in the figures on his card, as he and his partner Graham Bushell, were only allowed to score on three ends by opposition Roy Cleveland and Ron Rosengreen,who won the meat trays with their 25-point score as a result.
