Rancorrado once again delivered a very solid performance in the Meydan Nations' Cup at Hickstead, helping the team to finish 3rd overall, and ensuring that Ireland cannot now be relegated from the 2009 Meydan Series, and will therefore compete as one of the world's top ten teams in 2010.
The final scores for Ireland at Hickstead were as follows:
Cameron Hanley; Southwind VDL 8/0
Shane Sweetnam; Amaretto d'Arco 8/16
Cian O'Connor; Rancorrado 4/4
Billy Twomey; KEC Maximum Joe 18/Retd.
