Pool’s B & C open round two

Lausanne, Switzerland, June 3, 2005 – All four teams in Pools B and C are in action as round two of the 2005 World League Intercontinental Round gets underway on Friday.

Two matches have the honour of starting the round with France hosting Bulgaria in Pool B and Greece taking on Poland in Lodz in Pool C. Both matches start at 17:00 GMT (19:00 local time).

The Pool B clash is particularly interesting with France level with Italy with a win and a loss to their names and both sides eager to get a jump on the other this weekend while Bulgaria are desperate to open their account after failing in their first two attempts against Cuba in week one.

Poland’s clash with Greece, meanwhile, sees two unbeaten sides looking to gain the early ascendancy in the group. Both teams are struggling with injuries but consecutive wins for either side will go along way towards claiming a final round spot, which is awarded to the pool winner.

The other two matches to be played on Friday sees Italy host Cuba in Busto Arsizio in Pool B at 18:30 GMT (20:30 local time) before Argentina host Serbia and Montenegro in Buenos Aires in Pool C at 00:00 GMT (21:00 local time).
