Jack Hume added a third round 74 to scores of 72 and 64 to take a commanding seven-shot lead into Saturday's final round of the European Nations Cup in Spain.

The talented Naas man leads on six under par 210 from Welshman Owen Edwards (76 73 68/217) with British Amateur champion Romain Langasque (75 75 69/219) and Scotland's Robert MacIntyre (70 80 69/219) tied third on three over.

Ballymena's Dermot McElroy (77 79 71/227) and Castle's Alex Gleeson (74 78 75/227) are tied 18th in the individual standings at La Reserva de Sotogrande with Stuart Grehan of Tullamore/NUIM is joint 25th on 229 after rounds of 72, 86 and 71.

In the race for the team title, Hume's brilliance means that Ireland has an 11 stroke lead on 655 from France with Wales 17 behind on 672.
