We new this would be a tough game, and without some of our more seasoned players, it turned out so. While not having any big shots in their armoury, the home side played very solidly throughout and did not make many errors. Many games went to three ends, but we were unable to convert them in this tricky venue. I found that the shuttle flew out the back of the court, but that smashes were quite slow – very odd!
That said, nothing to be taken away from a hospitale and sporting home side. Their fine play belies their low position in the league. It seems that a thin squad has had its fair share of injuries this time round. If demoted, we wish them a swift return (that was revenge will be sooner!).
