Disappointing Defeat to Qatar for GB Men

GREAT Britain men continued their Jekyll and Hyde performances when they suffered a disappointing 26-38 defeat against Qatar in the Marrane Cup in Paris on Saturday.

After a strong showing against African champions Tunisia on Friday, GB were poor against a Qatar side they had hoped to beat.

“I’m very disappointed with our performance,” said head coach Dragan Djukic. “Particularly in the first half because we were ten goals down after 20 minutes and the game was lost already.

“Things were better in the second half, but we have to learn that the game starts at minute zero and finishes at minute 60. We can’t afford to turn off.”

The best players for GB were Chris Mohr with seven goals, while Bob White did well in goal with a 55 per cent save ratio, but Djukic added: “It’s not enough to have one or two who play well, we need the whole team to play together.”

Thomas Barker added five goals and Sebastian Prieto four, but it was not enough to stop GB slumping to defeat, with too many technical faults contributing to their downfall.
