The day starts misty again but we’re not bothered, Kieran and I race off to pick up Ger. We also pick up coffees and croissants in the local Spar for a quick breakfast. We are on a mission to catch the Irish Italy match in the RWC starting at 9.30am. What a match the whole Irish team just appears to be coming to form at the same time. I’ve been worried about our scrum for the last couple of years and felt it would never last the challenge of the tournament. Then were our backs past their best. But no the team looks like it’s timed it just perfectly. To me they look like a team that can make it to the final, let’s hope so. Well done lads a great game.

By the time the match is over the mist has burned off and the day matches our spirits bright, warm and happy.

A correction, by the way, our Infinity car is not an Opel, but a KIA! And it’s bloody great, so much for German build!

Today we decide to head to Salzburg city after lunch. I have to say we were a bit underwhelmed, as Eamon Dunphy would say “a good city, but not a great city!”. We are just so happy we decided to stay in St Gilgen and not in the City of Salzburg, thanks Joe we owe you for that!!
