Scotland in World Final

Wow! Now I really wish I was in Moncton. Watching Team Murdoch beat Kevin Martin's Canadians for the second time in as many days on Eurosport Player was brilliant, but it would have been something to have been there in the Coliseum! Way to go, guys!

David Murdoch, Ewan MacDonald, Peter Smith and Euan Byers (with alternate Graeme Connal and coach David Hay) are now guaranteed, at least, world silver medals. Who will they play in Sunday's final? It could be Martin again, who plays the winner of today's Page 3-4 between Thomas Ulsrud of Norway and Switzerland's Ralph Stockli. The winner of the 'semifinal' advances to the final to meet Scotland.

Follow the scores here.
