Canada cruise to final of Richmond International

Team Canada gave up a steal in the first end of the morning draw against Chris Daw's team, but then posted a series of big ends to come away 16-4 winners and finish the round robin 5-0. Darryl Neighbour sat out the game, still unwell after his flu shot. Bruno Yizek played 3rd.

Korea finished with an 8-4 win over the Richmond hosts to claim second place at 4-1. Alberta beat BC 8-5.

In the afternoon Page playoff, Canada held Korea to a single point, running out 10-1 wins and claiming the place in tomorrow afternoon's final. Third place Alberta beat Richmond 9-4 and face Korea in the morning semi-final.

Teams have pocketed $50 for each win, and $2,000 is at stake tomorrow

Team Canada, even without Darryl have been nothing short of astonishing. Jim Armstrong continues to dominate with his skipping expertise, and is drawing maximum performances from all the players.

Yhey seem to jelling as ateam, and if this continues, they will be the team to beat in March.
