Sian Honnor: 'Good start helped us'

Team England skipper Sian Honnor says that the good start against Canada was the reason they were able to win their opener.

Team England women's lawn bowls skipper Sian Honnor has admitted that the strong start was important in the 21-11 opening-game win against Canada on Thursday morning.

England went 10-0 ahead after three ends, and from that point on Canada were unable to get back in the match, which led to a fairly comfortable win for them.

"We got off to a really good start, it was obviously daunting to start off on a televised rink but we blocked it out and we all played really well as a team," she said.

"It was a solid performance and because the format is only 15 ends in the fours it is vital to get off to a good start and after the first three ends we had that. It was just a case of keeping the momentum going after that and we saw the game out."

The men's team also won their opening match.
