Glasgow Warriors face 12,000-mile round trip for one match

When Dave Rennie signed on for his stint with the Warriors you suspect that one reason the Kiwi coach moved north was the ever-increasing travel demands that the expanded Super Rugby imposed upon all participants. Had his Chiefs team beaten the Crusaders in this season’s semi-final and flown to Johannesburg for the final they would, someone did the maths, have racked up an eye-popping, record 42,921 kilometres (26,830 miles) in one Super Rugby season.

Close but no Roineaval trophy

Close but no Roineaval trophy

The only drawback - and there is only one drawback - of the annual away match against Golspie Golf Club is the length of time taken to make the trip. The early ferry crossing followed by a long bus journey seems to take its toll on some members of the Stornoway team more than others. For reasons that appear difficult to understand, some golfers arrive at the first tee in such a dishevelled and disorientated state that it is difficult for their opponents to avoid the conclusion that this will not be much of a contest.

August is THE month for island golf

Hardly had I fled the country in mid-July than the weather improved dramatically at home. My understandable disappointment was tempered by winning the award for the best nett score by a visitor in the Senior Golf Association of Northern Portugal Amateur Open Championship at Estela Golf Club. Somehow, they managed to engrave all of that onto a rather impressive little trophy, which made the daily photographs of a sun-drenched Hebrides a touch less painful.
