This was the fourth match of London Lions against the Parisian team in two years.

All players participated and every one contributed to win the game. It should be noted that the cooperation of the players was above expectations and it was one of the tenets that led to London Lions to win the game even though the players were not 100% mentally ready to play. We will face strong teams in Trapani. The match has given London Lions a confidence to push and aim to fight for a good position in the up and coming Italian Tournament.
