Unfortunately the Spanish Visa agency refused Delarey Terblanche a visa so we were without our star player for the Saturday and Sunday matches against Sporting Alfas. Nevertheless we recorded a fine win on Saturday extending our winning run to 4. However without Terblanche and While on Sunday we suffered a resounding defeat on the one wet day of the tour. On Monday we drew the time game with Forty Club Of Spain failing to prize out the last two wickets after a cautious declaration.
