Over the past weekend SAC had the great pleasure to host the return of the Rhinos, a team from the UK that last visited Paris in the early 1990s. Two excellent matches were played, with a win each for the tourists and the hosts. 

On Saturday, the Rhinos won the toss and elected to bat, posting a challenging 260 for 5 off their 35 overs thanks to a debut century from opener Huxtable. Pick of the bowlers for SAC was Nisseem Burkule with three wickets (to go with a stunning one handed catch). In response, Henry Colburn batted excellently for 83, and got SAC close with support from Alastair Thomas (39), Nisseem Burkule (31) and Yaesin Shikdar (27). But in the end it was just too much, with the Rhinos winning by 25 runs.

On Sunday it was SAC’s turn to win the toss and post a challenging total of 229 for 4 off our 30 overs. Alastair Thomas made 80, Nisseem Burkule 51 not out, and Thodi Andersson 31. Two wickets each from Shakeel Ahmad and Nisseem Burkule then put the Rhinos in early trouble, and although they staged a strong comeback in the second half of the innings it proved too much, with SAC winning by 28 runs.

Next weekend the opponents are St Brice on Saturday 7th and Le Croq Sportif on Sunday 8th (with a 12 o'clock start).
