• It was delightful to see the Irish rugby squad bungee-jumping, whitewater rafting and hurtling around in go-karts in Queenstown, New Zealand.

After all the flak they have taken during their recent run of abysmal results, it's great to see them having a good time and a smile returning to their faces.



However, if I am not mistaken, the Rugby World Cup begins this weekend and these bungee-jumpers are supposed to playing a rugby match against the USA on Sunday.
