Cardiff-based water polo team could win the British league for the first time

Ahead of the final games, two Welsh Wanderers reflect on their stunning season so far

Two of the Welsh Wanderers’ key players discuss the season so far, and their high hopes for the weekend

CARDIFF-BASED Welsh Wanderers are competing in the Super5s, a competition for the five best water polo teams in the UK.

This weekend, the final games of the season will be played out and as it stands the Cardiff-based club could finish anywhere from first to fifth.

“I think we’ll win both our games and if we’re lucky, results will go our way and we can win the whole thing,” said Ceri Griffiths, one of Wanderers’ starting seven.

They go to Coventry on Saturday to play London-based Polytechnic, who they beat in the first round of matches this season. They stay to play Cheltenham on Sunday, to round out their season.

“Cheltenham is a weird one, we’ve played them so much over the years, so we all know what everyone’s trying to do,” said Matt Griffiths, who scored the winning goal against Polytechnic in November.

Even if Wanderers lose both games, they have never made it to the Super5s before, so this season they will still record their best ever finish.
