After a triumphant away win for Cardiff in London, it was time for what was to be the biggest grudge match of the tournament.

Buffalo bar was the venue for a second time running. With the Bank Holiday in full swing punters arrived early to get the party started. The London team rolled deep with there own private bus full of team members and fans alike. At 10.30 the venue was suitably rammed, our host Ruffstylzs called out the artists and the battle commenced. The Cardiff team came through with a good piece that depicted the London bus getting smashed up as it drove over the Seven bridge on its way to Wales. London drew a Welsh Rarebit being served up on a dinner table by a butler, about to be eaten by what looked like a hungry english man. The battle was very close, Cardiff's piece worked well as a whole, London produced an excellent collaboration, the rabbit was my personal favourite.

So to the judging. London won the first vote from Associated Minds head honcho Mayor. He liked the different styles on offer and the clean lines. Then for the crowd vote. This was too close for my liking, Cardiff just pulled through with 1.3 decibel lead. One all. The last vote went to Miguel Pirez a local producer and ex graff head. He called Cardiff.

Cardiff did well to win but London were very close to getting the away win they needed. Too close in my opinion. Over all it was a great nights entertainment. There were a lot of new comers who had missed the previous battle but had heard of the event via Facebook or through a friend. It seems each event is busier than the last and Secret Wars is spreading fast in South Wales.
