The pompous and self-important Abbot suffers more than his fair share of the game’s aggravations. The world’s worst house guest, Brother Herman from Australia, pays the monastery a visit. A team of attractive girls arrives at St Titus, playing unexpectedly well and unsettling the monastery novices. A disastrous start sends the Abbot to the bottom row of a Swiss Teams, where he receives unwelcome advice from Josie Threlfall, a local teacher of the game.
