The Irish squad for the European Team Championships continued their strategy of starting slow, in order to end with a glorious late run. Up against the Springboks on Tuesday 18th November, they ended the match with a considered 1-3 deficit. James Hutchinson performed well to topple the 3-dan playing top board for South Africa, but the other squad members failed to follow his lead, despite having some good chances in all 3 games. Next up in the league will be the United Kingdom.
