Northern Ireland's wait for a gold medal continues after Neil Booth's team lost to South Africa in the men's triples final at Kelvingrove.

Booth, playing alongside Paul Daly and Neil Mulholland, went into the clash with confidence after he had masterminded a group-stage win over the Africans last week.

But they went down to a 19-10 defeat as Bobby Donnelly, Prince Nelounde and Petrus Breitenbach collected the Rainbow Nation's sixth gold of Glasgow 2014.

Northern Ireland had already taken care of home nations rivals Scotland and Wales on their way to the gold-medal match.

But they were under pressure as soon as the South Africans picked up 11 shots in the space of seven ends to surge 14-3 ahead.

Booth's men responded with seven shots in three ends, b ut a double for South Africa in the 15th exchange put them back on course for victory.

In the bronze-medal match, the Welsh trio of Marc Wyatt, Jonathan Tomlinson and Paul Taylor bounced back from their semi-final loss to topple Australia's Matt Flapper, Nathan Rice and Wayne Ruediger 16-13.
