Australia’s Kent Callister kicks points off by landeding on his behind. He’s adhered to by Finland’s Peetu Piiroinen, that does specifically the exact same point.

Allowed’s obtain this program when driving with a great area of curling: everyone’s preferred sporting activity for 2 weeks, as soon as every 4 years. It actually excels. Truthful!

It’s a hard ready Group GB: their Swiss challengers took bronze at the 2017 Globe Champions as well as defeat them in the quarter-finals of the Perth Masters last month. An opportunity for vengeance, probably?
