Whereas in the group stage it made sense to give them a 2 point for it.
Personally I think its crap that in a tie like this with 5 rubbers that you can win 3 of the rubbers and lose, but obviously Sky in the UK want to make it as high variance as possible and hopefully get games going to that 5th game, so I understand where they are coming from.
Nicholson leading Bates 3-2 but has the throw for the 6th leg. Its amazing as the commentators have mentioned that Australia almost did an England and fall to Ireland, winning 6-5 where I think Ireland had chances to win.
Still need to close this out to play against Barney and Stompe.
