5:59 am on 23 July 2010

The World champion new Zealand shearing team has this morning sewn-up another test series against Wales, taking a 3-nil lead with one test to go.

Cam Ferguson and David Fagan beat Welsh shearers Gareth Daniels and Hwyl Jones by a single point in a 20-sheep match culminating the royal Welsh Show and 14th Golden shears World Championships at Llanelwedd.

The teams meet in the final test over the next two days at the Corwen Shears, where there will also be a woolhandling test between the two country's, with the New Zealand pair of Sheree Alabaster and Keryn Herbert the favourites after winning the World teams final earlier in the week.
