The Right at Home Jackaroos and Para-Jackaroos have enjoyed a successful second day of the Tri-Nations series against Ireland and Scotland on the greens of Royal Leamington Spa.

As the squad aims to hone its skills at the venue of the 2022 Commonwealth Games, the team won 21 of the 35 rubbers overnight, including two whitewashes in the final session of play.

In the opening session, the Australian Gold side shared the honours with Scotland, while the Green squad defeated Ireland with three victories from four encounters.

Session two saw Ireland bounce back, claiming two wins with Australia Gold winning one rubber and the teams sharing a draw.

Australia Green would split the results with Scotland with the teams amassing two victories each in the middle session.

The final session saw a celebration of a Jackaroos stalwart, Lynsey Clarke, who notched up her 400th international cap as she and Dawn Hayman defeated the Scottish pair of Hannah Smith and Claire Johnston 17-10 as Australia Green took home a 4-0 whitewash to end the day.

Australia Gold enjoyed the same success, winning all four rubbers over Ireland to ensure the best possible finish to the day.

The Para-Jackaroos were evenly matched throughout the entire day with their Scottish foes, going at five wins, six losses and a draw for the entirety of the day, splitting the four matches in the final two sessions after a win, draw and two losses in the morning.
