Hi All, Our overseas player this year Mthiwekhaya Nabe has been selected as part of the Western Province squad to take part in the Africa Cup T20 tournament. Western Province and the Cape Cobras who hold Mthiwekahaya’s contract wrote to the club requesting his formal release, to which we obviously granted. I am sure you will all like to join me in wish Mthi the very best for his home summer, and would like to thank him for his efforts this season. He has put in countless hours on the ground and more importantly with our colts who I know are very grateful for his work. Similarly I would like to thank Mthi for his efforts on and off the field, he has been a dream to Captain and his desire is second to none. He has been a great asset to the side and I wish him the very best. Mthi will return home on the 21st of August, making his last game on the 19th against Gerards Cross at home. As this is the race night, please feel free to come down and share a beer with Mthi prior to his departure. Jordan
