Flash Quotes from Players on Day 5

Michael Sutherland, Skip Team England on winning their game against Scotland 5-4 in an extra end and qualifying his team for the quarterfinals: “It’s the game of the week that I will remember, in fact I will remember it all my life! It was just quite amazing. Although that’s the second time I have actually skipped the English team against the Scots and beaten them – so it’s really memorable.” [Sutherland’s first win against Scotland was at the 2006 World Seniors in Copenhagen. Ronnie Peat was Skip of the Scottish team at the time].
