Another busy weekend for A Class Drivers with airport transfers and long distance taxi journeys across the country. This weekend brings the last in the autumn test series of Rugby Internationals, Wales welcoming the South African rugby team to the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff on Saturday. Can Wales beat South Africa? I think so! After a very brave strong effort against the worlds’ best New Zealand, held for nearly 70 minutes, the final scoreline did not reflect the rugby played by Wales that day and then only foiled by a charge down and the bounce of the ball twice in the last ten minutes, I like to think they can!
