Northern Ireland's bowling struggles continue as men's pair McClure and Kelly exit Northern Ireland's disappointing bowls campaign in Gold Coast continued as men's pair Ian McClure and Gary Kelly exited following a 21-8 defeat by Wales and women's single Catherine Beattie also bowed out. Beattie needed to beat world number one and gold medal favourite Karen Murphy to keep her hopes alive but the Australian clinched a 21-17 victory. The Men's triples and women's fours earned wins but their hopes of qualification for the knockout stages had already been extinguished. Simon Martin, Martin McHugh and Andrew Kyle beat Scotland 16-14 with the women's four edging out England 15-14 for their only win in the group stage.
