Sandaza the ace in the pack

"I played poker with Jennison Myrie-Williams, Andis Shala, Damian Casalinuovo, Scott Robertson and Keith Watson on Tuesday and I won the money," Sandaza told the Daily Record.

"We have a lot of time after training so it's good to get involved with each other and have some fun."
