England lose to South Africa in Copa de las Naciones

A strong South Africa side gets the better of England at Palermo

ENGLAND WAS DEFEATED by South Africa on the opening day of the 22-goal Copa de las Naciones.

The England team of Luke and Mark Tomlinson, Ollie Cudmore and Matt Perry faced a South Africa side of Jean and Nachi du Plessis, Dirk van Reenen and Chris Mackenzie, who defeated them 14-10 at Palermo, Buenos Aires.

England took an early lead and were 4-2 up going into the third chukka. But South Africa turned up the heat, pulling the score back to 6-6 by half-time and taking control in the second half of the match.

Three teams are taking part in the round-robin tournament. England will play Argentina – Diego Cavanagh, Peter Falabella, Martin Joaquin and Manuel Plaza de Ayala – on Thursday (11 April). Argentina will then play South Africa on Saturday 13 April, to decide the winner.

England will be looking for revenge when they take on South Africa on home ground in the first Audi international Test Match of the season, at Beaufort Polo Club on 15 June.
