Royden CHARLIE Browne, the captain of the CG Rebels team, admitted in a post-match interview, that his multiple times champion team, was a little rusty.
‘We have not been practicing but we will get better as the season progresses,’ he warned.
This, as action in the Malcolm Guishard Basketball league continued on Tuesday night, at the Church ground Hard court.
