He's got to get a grip on his scheduling, I can't even see beating these guys being particularly confidence boosting either.
In fairness he isn't playing against the Isle of Man. Given that South Wales are in Group 1 he is playing against some decent players and he is far from the only player skipping a futures event to play here. He is also scheduled to play two 15K futures in the next two weeks so taking one week out for this isn't really a big deal.
Incidentally Josh only won 2 of his 3 matches on day 2 but South Wales picked up another 5-4 win, this time over Norfolk. Things will get more difficult tomorrow when they take on a very strong Kent team that includes Matt Short, Lewis Burton and Sean Thornley.
