Great Britain power past Poland in World Championships opener
Great Britain issued an ominous marker of intent as they opened up their 2018 Wheelchair Rugby World Championships campaign with a thumping win over Poland Down Under.
As they bid to improve upon their fifth-placed finish in Odense, Denmark, four years ago, Great Britain brought up the curtain on their bid for World Championship glory with a 55-31 success in Sydney.
Skippered by Chris Ryan, the Brits were at their free-flowing best at the Genea Netball Centre, pouring forward time and again while also shutting down a number of Polish offensives.
They led 29-17 at the halfway point and from then on, they worked their way up through the gears.
Going into the final quarter, Great Britain had enjoyed an advantage of 23 points, one that they would extend by a further point as they wrapped up a 55-31 win.
Ryan’s side will take on the United States, Canada, France and Colombia in Pool B as they go looking to grab their first-ever World Championship medal.
They face a thorough examination of their credentials on Monday when they face the US, the most successful nation in World Championships history, at 4.30am UK time at the Quaycentre at Sydney Olympic Park.
GB will then take on Canada and Colombia on Tuesday before rounding off their Pool B assignments against France on Wednesday.
