[<<] [>>] by Chris Williams at Geneva
15-16 September 2001 (International)

Wales defeated Switzerland 16-3 to retain the Coupe des Vallees at the CERN club in Geneva last weekend. Highlights of the match were Welsh new cap David Walters performing his first ever triple peel in the doubles match against Sexton and Eatough, and Chris Williams performing four successive triples including his first straight triple.

Once again the Welsh team were treated to some wonderful Swiss hospitality and were kindly invited to the Swiss CA's 10th anniversary dinner.
