Hosts win Super Nations Cup

Hong Kong China beat England 11-7 in the final at the Goldin Metropolitan Polo Club in China

England lost out to Hong Kong China in the final of the Super Nations Cup, as the home side powered to an 11-7 victory at the Goldin Metropolitan Polo Club.

Led by eight-goaler JP Clarkin, who was named most valuable player, and also featuring John Fisher, JP Ganon and Dirk Gould, the Hong Kong China side stormed to a healthy lead from the first chukka. 

The England team of Luke and Mark Tomlinson, Nacho Gonzalez and Henry Fisher were left with a lot of work to do, and although they managed to close the margin to four goals by the final chukka, it was Hong Kong China who ran out the winners to the delight of the home crowd.

“It wasn’t a good game for us,” said England captain Luke Tomlinson. “John-Paul Clarkin and JP Ganon were a lot stronger in the middle of the team than we were today”.
