First win for senior men


IRELAND got off the blocks with a win here in Gangneung with a win over Australia in the first session of play tonight.

The men’s team – Bill Gray, David Whyte, Neil Fyfe and Ross Barr – won 8-7 with a five in the sixth end proving crucial. As the game progresses it was obvious the Australians were going to be tight for time at the eighth end.
