Today our challengers spent the day at ABC acclimatising to the new height of 6,450 metres.
Wooden Spoon Rugby Manager, Matt Mitchell who is now only able to communicate by satellite phone said: “The team are exhausted. Yesterday’s trek was really hard going for all of us.
“There has been incredible scenery and today Carrie, our Expedition Leader is going to check the pitch for the match and the sherpas are going to transport the pitch. It is another two hour walk from where we are.”
“We MAY play the match a day early, depending on the conditions and how well the team is feeling. Wish us luck.”
