Knights v Cardiff

On Tuesday morning we moved out of our London apartment and took the train to Joe Richardson's lovely home in Basingstoke out in the British countryside. Joe and Maggie met us at the station and took us to the car rental store where we picked up our transport for the rest of the tour, a Peugeot 206 hatchback and a Vauxhall Corsa. Taking 2 small cars worked out cheaper than a big team van. We followed Maggie to the Richardson's home where we would leave our suitcases for  a few days as we would be piling into the peaugot with as little baggage as possible as we headed to Cardiff for the evenings fixture. Maggie worked miracles with our laundry for us for which we are extremely grateful as you can imagine! We had some local fish and chips and then set off for Cardiff about 150 miles west.

We got to the club in good time and special mention must go to Gerwyn Davies who arranged free accommodation for us at the Sports Wales institute which was a 2 minute walk from Cardiff Squash Club. We played a young Cardiff side and all managed to win for our first 5-0 victory, taking back a bit of Saffa pride after the Springbok loss a few weeks ago!

We had a good meal of rice and chilli con carne afterwards and our new favourite lager, San Miguel. Gerwyn stayed to chat with us in the clubhouse and told us about how he came to meet Craig Van Der Wath as a talented young saffa with loads of potential.

Gerwyn's nephew showed took us to experience some Cardiff nightlife which was buzzing on the night. We ended up at a club called revolution before going home for a short sleep.

Upon our wake up call early the next morning, we found we were missing a member of the team. He found his way back just in time as we were leaving, by the sounds of it he had had quite an eventful night without catching too many winks but a great night. Period.

Knights Won 5-0
