England retains the Bryan Morrison Trophy

Hyde helps England continue its unbeaten Arena Test Match run

ENGLAND LIFTED THE Bryan Morrison Trophy for the sixth consecutive year on Saturday at the All England Polo Club, Hickstead.

Arena nine-goaler Chris Hyde led England, also featuring seven-goalers Tarquin Southwell and Roddy Williams, to a 20-14 win over the British Isles in the Arena Test Match.

The British Isles team, captained by eight-goaler Jamie Morrison and played alongside Seb Dawnay and Maurice Ormerod, took an early lead but a flurry of goals from Hyde brought the scores level at 8-8 by half-time. England took control in the final two chukkas, widening the lead and piling the pressure on to the British Isles. Chris Hyde was named most valuable player of the Test Match.

Prior to the main Test Match, Wales got the better of the Commonwealth to win the Clogau 12-Goal Challenge. Despite Ricky Cooper's Wales team achieving a seven-goal lead by the fourth chukka, Jonathan Munro Ford's Commonwealth side turned on the heat in the final minutes to claw their way up to 17-17 as the final bell rang. Peter Webb scored the golden goal for Wales in overtime to secure the win.
