Men 1 put up a good fight against Malory Eagles

On Saturday 3 November, Men's 1 travelled to London for the second round of the NVL Cup knockout competition.

After beating Norfolk, NVL division 3, in the first round, we played against Malory Eagles, from the Super 8’s –  the top division in England. Our squad consisted of Roberto, Gabriele, Martijn, Jon, Rune, Anders, Gareth, Jamie and Thomas.

After a nervy start, we got into our game and scored some good points. At times we played well and competed with the Super 8 team. However, their fire power and talent (they have several GB and ex-GB players in their squad) helped them dominate the first two sets, 25-16, 25-13. Then in the third set we got off to a good start and were 4-1 and 8-3 up. Unfortunately we couldn’t continue our good spell and lost the set 25-14. 

A 3-0 loss, however a good experience and something to aim for in the future!
