Wales claimed gold in the men's pairs Lawn Bowls after a nail-biting 19-18 final-end victory over England.

The Welsh duo of Daniel Salmon and Jarrad Breen made a quick start and held a 15-6 lead after 10 ends.

But back came the England pair of Sam Tolchard and Jamie Walker and hauled themselves level at 16-16 in the 14th end.

Wales edged back ahead 18-16 in the 15th but England kept in touch and they headed into the final end with Wales holding a narrow 19-17 advantage.

England, with one point assured, had the opportunity to force an extra end but the final shot rolled wide to hand Wales victory by the narrowest of margins.

Salmon, who also won the pairs title four years ago on the Gold Coast with Marc Wyatt, admitted it was a dream to be a double Commonwealth champion.

He said: "I'd never even dreamt of that happening. I always wanted to get to a Commonwealth Games, but to win two golds now, it's just beyond my wildest dreams. The most perfect day of my life."

Salmon was nervous with the position England were left in with the advantage of the last shot in the 18th end.

He said: "I was worried, because I thought he was going to rest on the back bowl, but he just slid through the gap. It was just relief, I don't know what else to say, I'm in a bit of a daze."

Scotland secured bronze with a comprehensive 25-5 win over Northern Ireland.

The Scottish pair of Paul Foster and Alex Marshall were 15-2 up after seven ends and never looked back as Sam Barkley and Martin McHugh were not allowed into the match.

A 3-0 victory in the 14th end wrapped it up.

And Scotland secured the top step of the podium later in the day as Garry Brown and Kevin Wallace earned a 16-7 win over Australia's Damien Delgado and Chris Flavel to land para men's pairs gold.

It was a tight affair early on, with the score 5-4 after the sixth end, but in the seventh end Scotland opened up a four-point lead and never looked back - eventually running out 16-7 winners.

The bronze went to England, thanks to a 13-4 win over New Zealand.

India quartet Lovely Choubey, Pinki, Nayanmoni Saikia and Rupa Rani Tirkey pulled away late on to secure gold with a 17-10 win over South Africa in the women's fours.

India held an 8-2 advantage after seven ends but South Africa rallied to take a 10-8 lead after 11 ends.

After drawing level in the 12th end, India took control by winning the next three to win it after 15.

New Zealand beat Fiji 17-6 in the bronze medal match to clinch the last step of the podium.
