Our 8 am game against Kazakhstan got off a solid start with four players in both teams for the first two ends. The Kazakhstan lead was then banished to the coaches bench where she remained for the rest of the game, as usual. A lead of 6 – 2 was established by mid game break. Hands were shaken during the eighth end when the score line read 7 – 3.Team Ireland then retired to review stone placement and sweeping tactics on the patio.
