Paxton cruises through to second round

6 March, 2017

It was seeded Robert Paxton against qualifier Tony Webb, both from England in the second of the mornings matches and it was Paxton at his best. From the outset he was on blazing form and just did not let Webb get anywhere near. Not that Webb performed badly, simply that Paxton was superb and he cruised through both sets playing top class bowls and took the match in two clean sets of 12,1 - 10,4
