Snooty, you've got to remember that you "southern"  Whistle softies are not used to winter being so early. I've had my valuables protected from the cold for a few weeks now!  Wink

Anyway, after a full day trying to work out how to extract the results from the WCF website, the permafrost in my brain has thawed out sufficiently to give you a run-down of the results so far.

SATURDAY - Ireland 8 Slovenia 5; Italy 2 Scotland 7; England 7 Austria 4; Wales 2 Poland 5; England 5 France 4; Ireland 7 Italy 6; Scotland 5 Japan 4 (at least some Scots can beat Japan):
SUNDAY - Croatia 6 Wales 8; Scotland 12 Luxembourg 3; Ireland 6 Chinese Taipei 4; England 1 Switzerland 7; Denmark 14 Wales 1:

Tomorrow has Japan v Ireland, Turkey v Scotland and Finland v England at High Noon, followed by New Zealand v Wales having to Wait Until Dark. Just in case I'm not around tomorrow night, Tuesday's Voyage Of The Dawn Treader features England v Russia and Scotland v Chinese Taipei with Ireland v Turkey. Two O'Clock Courage will be needed for the final stages of the game between Wales and Andorra.
