British men face Italy in World League test

5th March 2012

The British Gas GBR Men’s Water Polo team face their latest FINA World League test against world champions Italy on Tuesday night.

The British men emerged with credit from a 14-6 defeat when they hosted the Italians in their first World League preliminary in Manchester last December.

The Brits impressed again as they ran Russia close in their second preliminary in Kirishi and will look to continue their improvement against the world champions in Cremona before returning to home shores for their final preliminary against Russia on 20th March.

Captain Craig Figes has been plying his trade with domestic club Simply Sport Pescara in Italy and will lead a 13-strong British team into battle with the match starting at 19:30 GMT.
