2016 Seoul Korea

2016 Opening Ceremony

The 2016 tour to Korea was very successful for our team. We finished a very respectable 5th place after the preliminary rounds and equal 7th overall.

We started with a city tour on the first day then straight into practice games on the second day. We played practice games against various Korean teams, including the team that participated in the world cup in Japan. Whilst the results weren't always that favourable we were aiming to get all the players exposed to the Korean level of play.

We attended several professional games and visited the DMZ before the tournament started. The tournament schedule was hectic but all the players responded well to the busy schedule.

We started with a loss to Korea B then a win against Germany and San Diego in the preliminaries. In the second round we went down to Japan 13-8 then lost to Chinese Taipei

 

2015 Okazaki, Nagoya Japan

The 2015 tour to Japan started in Fujimi, about 1 hour from Tokyo. The team had a home stay and practice games before moving to Tokyo for another practice game. After attending a professional game at Tokyo Dome we were treated to an outstanding welcome party hosted by the Tokyo branch of Japan Boys League. The following day we had a day tour to Mount Fiji and the surrounding lakes district.

We took the bullet train to Kyoto for 3 days of sightseeing, practice games and a day trip to Hiroshima before transferring to Nagoya for the tournament.
