Report from county match v Worcestershire (19 Feb 2017, Oxford BC)

As John Williams says, a big result for the county and a welcome return to form.  Our A team won by 54 IMPs (14-6 VPs), the B by 237 (20-0) and the C by 82 (15-5) though this last result still awaits the outcome of an appeal which could reduce the margin of victory.
