The GB&I team has lost its grip on the Astor Trophy, one they have held since 2007.  They completed their four-match programme today with a 5½-1½ defeat at the hands of hosts Australia on Day 4 at Grange Golf Club, Adelaide, South Australia.

The team finished with 2pts, and Australia already have 3pts with a last-day match against South Africa still to come. South Africa moved up to 2pt by beating Canada 5-2 today.

GB&I halved the foursomes 1-1 with the Aussies, Bronte Law and Chloe Williams (pictured l-r) winning by 2&1. But GB&I I did not manage to win any of the singles and went under by 4½-1½.

Only Bramhall's Law, a student at UCLA, managed to secure half-a-point in the afternoon play. She had a square match with the Australian No 1 Shelly Shin.

Australia last won the Astor Trophy in 1995, 1999 and 2003. The tournament is played every four years.
