Eire Cup Day Two - Vics play NSW
Traditional rivalry in Australian sport seems to centre on battles between Victoria and New South Wales. It matters not the sport. And so it is in croquet.
Day 2 of the Eire Cup featured the clash between these two rivals. The matches were played at the split venues of Kingston and Eastern Shores Croquet Clubs. Both clubs have great views of the Derwent. The lawns at both were in excellent condition. A highlight of this Eire Cup must be the hospitality of the clubs. At all venues we have been welcomed and fed well. Too well!
The croquet was high class.
