Disappointing Start to Yellow Cup for GB Men

GREAT Britain Men lost out 18-33 to Switzerland in the opening game of their Yellow Cup campaign on Saturday, being beaten by the hosts after a disappointing second half.

GB were only trailing 10-12 after a strong first period and kept pace with their rivals, with Jesper Parker looking strong in goal and the outfield players attacking well.

But a bad 10-minute spell just after play resumed saw them make several technical errors and their poor defence conceded seven goals, and from then on they were always playing catch-up.

Their Yellow Cup campaign continues today, Sunday, with a clash against Tunisia at 1pm. Their opponents will be aiming to secure their first victory of the Cup after losing out narrowly to Holland on Saturday, 33-34.

Following that, GB will take on Holland on Monday at 6.30pm.
