Down five after 10 holes, the Australians won five of the last eight holes as Bonallack and Michael King went to pieces. But with the match all square on the 18th, Bennett pushed a 40-foot putt eight feet past the hole and Ratcliffe missed the follow-up to lose the hole. Britain's other winners were Charles Green and George MacGregor who halved the 18th with Terry Gale and Bill Britten to win 1 up. Australia's win went to Tony Gresham and Kevin Donohoe, who beat Rodney Foster and Hugh Stuart 5 and 4, finishing three under par in 68.

Sil- verberg included an eagle in his 5-and-4 over MaeDonald while Murray crushed Rox- burgh 6 and 5 for New Zea- land's only win of the day. Wes- lock and Clarke halved their match. Highlight of Australia's win was the performance of Ben- nett, 26, in beating Bonnalack two and one. Bennett had a brilliant streak to take the fifth, sixth and sev- enth holes, two of them with birdies, to go 2 up after trailing by one hole. Britain's only success in the singles came from King, who staged a sensational recovery to defeat Donohoe by one hole. King fired an eagle-two on the llth tole to cut his deficit to three, halved the next three holes with par figures and then continued to play par golf to win the last four holes.
