The UK Team

The UK team will be playing at the Polocrosse Extreme Cup in the A grade competition. They are using the competition as a warm up for their tour to South Africa which is taking place from the 5th to the 15th of July. They are entirely self funded and play the game for love (and absolutely no money).  We are delighted that they have agreed to use the Polocrosse Extreme Cup as a warm up and wish them all the best in South Africa.

However, despite being the UK’s best players they are unlikely to have it all their own way in the A grade. There are plenty of other players in the UK who intend to make sure they are fully up to speed before heading off to South Africa by pushing them as hard as they can. And if it wasn’t enough to deal with their fellow country men and women then there are the overseas players who are over to play the summer season and then rumours of Irish team coming over to challenge them as well…..

We will aim to bring you team profiles of all the A grade teams over the next month but here are the UK’s finest!
