A shock loss of four in the first end, against the head, galvanised James, Arran, Steve and Eoin, and they hit back with a three in the second. They then scored in every end, except losing a one in the sixth. After a steal of three in the eighth, the Croatians offered handshakes. Well done Ireland!
