British men target World League crescendo

19th March 2012

The British Gas GBR Men’s Water Polo team will look to finish their debut World League campaign on a high note as they host Russia in their final preliminary on Tuesday.

The Brits were handed an intimidating draw for their first foray into the competition, facing World champions Italy and former World League winners Russia.

While Italy dominated the group to secure the only qualification spot, the British men gave Russia a scare in a 12-8 defeat in January and will aim to turn the tables on their more experienced opponents in Manchester.

The last time they hosted Eastern opponents at Manchester Aquatics Centre, the Brits used the crowd to their advantage to seal a dramatic 8-7 victory over Georgia in their final European Championship qualifier in July 2011.
