Six groups of Munster rugby players continued their journeys toward Kerry, spending plenty of time with fans along the way.

For the second year running, the players took part in a team-building exercise that saw them divided into groups and given different start points all over the province.

As they showed us yesterday, along the way there were plenty of tasks to be completed and delighted fans to be greeted.

And as the groups converged on Kerry for their rendezvous in Dingle at five this evening, the fun and games continued. Using the #munrace14 hashtag fans and the players themselves have been showing their progress.

The rugby stars have gamely had a go at whatever challenges they were set, be it boating or shaving.

One lucky hitchhiker found himself right in the middle of the action, while it looks like somewhere in Kerry a bride is missing her veil.

Ronan O'Mahoney and Felix Jones even showed off some very tasty soccer skills in Tralee. If the rugby doesn’t work out lads, maybe a change of code will be in order.
