It was a racing day the (few) spectators enjoyed, but unfortunately the Super 14 Rugby tournament on TV must have kept a lot of people from coming to Gallina. Honda was the brand with the most wins. A pleasant surprise was that Jose Teixeira brought four MX-riders with him from Angola.
Namibia drew their SAA Challenge cricket match against Border in East London on Saturday after a rain interruption came to Namibia’s rescue. Border seemed to be on course to win the match when they were set a winning target of only 148 runs, but a rain interruption of about two hours delayed their run chase and they eventually reached 88 for three wickets when the match was called off.
With a first innings lead of 95 runs, Border held the initiative and when they dismissed Namibia for 242 runs in their second innings they seemed set to win the match.
