A sparkling six-under round of 66 at Frilford Heath in Oxfordshire has put Knock's Colin Fairweather in contention to reach the second stage of the European Tour qualifying school.

After a two-over 74 on day one, Fairweather then produced a faultless round, carding four birdies after opening with a stunning eagle three on his first hole, starting on the 10th.

At four-under, in a tie for sixth, he is on course to bag one of the qualifying spots that will be earned by 20th place and ties after tomorrow's fourth round.

Naas man Conor O'Rourke slipped with a 74 yesterday but is still well placed on two-under with 36 holes still to play.

Dermot McElroy (73, 70) is one-under, while Niall Kearney (75, 71) and Stuart Grehan (76, 71) are two-over and three-over par.

Meanwhile, Ireland will go head-to-head with holders England at Newport today in a winner-takes-all showdown as they bid to win the Ladies' Senior Home International title for only the third time.

Yesterday's 6-2 victory over hosts Wales backed up an opening day victory over Scotland by the same margin and means Pauline Walsh's side now have every chance of their first win since 2013.
