Ireland’s men got back to winning ways in some style this morning with a thumping victory over Croatia.
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!
The men are back up to third equal in the table now, level with Belgium and Romania, but behind undefeated leaders France and second placed Slovenia. They face Bulgaria tonight.
A steal of three in an extra end saw the Irish women’s team complete a stunning comeback against Romania.
Four down going into the last end they got a four and held their nerve in the extra to seal the victory and record their third win. The team top the table on three wins and one loos the same as Belarus and Slovenia. Well done to all four players and the coach of course!
