Marcus is pleased to advise that his team took gold at the SI Softball Masters last weekend in beautiful Nelson.

Given his team contained a number of leading Black Sox players it might not have been surprising that the 3 rings team took gold the same day the ABs wiped out the Ozzies. Marty Grant on the mound is still one of the most impressive sights in the game.

The team would also like to thank the Environment Minister Nick Smith for hosting them to watch the French defeat Wales…zzzz ….

Marcus will be at Eden Park this Sunday night and sees the RWC final as a fait accompli notwithstanding all the nervousness.
