TONIGHTS ACTION: Great Britain v Australia | The Second Test

Newport are your hosts for this evenings ICSF Worlds action, with the Mens and Ladies┬áteams clashing just 48 hours after the opening ties at Horspath – and you can catch it live on Periscope (details at the bottom of the article).

The mens line up sees five changes to the side that won in Oxfordshire. Aris, Brooke, Evans, Parish and Peck all come in, as team boss Dave Murphy shows off the strength and depth of the Great Britain squad. Maximum man, Mark Boaler is rested, but back in the side against Poland on Thursday.

Australia will be more of the same and will enjoy the wide open spaces that Newport presents. Expect the Aussies to come out fighting, as they know only a win is enough to keep them in the hunt for the series.

Mens Teams

GREAT BRITAIN
Lee Aris, Josh Brooke, Mark Carmichael, Nick Evans, Paul Heard (c), Ben Mould, Chris Parish, Adam Peck.

AUSTRALIA
Rob Sellick, Cody Chadwick, Joel Chadwick, Cameron Crisp, Bobby McMillan, Ryan Edson, Shane Bentley, Shane Weinert


The ladies team also has a shake up on the GB front. Rebecca Davies and Danielle Riley come in, with Lucy Whitehead and Lauren Jacobs being rested, returning for Coventry. Expect a similar performance from the Great Britain ladies, as they look to wrap up the series after two rounds.

Australia will be unchanged and need to pull something out of the bag, after a heavy defeat on Monday. Millikin and Collins will lead the charge and the track may suit the visiting nation more so than the Village.

Ladies Teams

GREAT BRITAIN
Vicky Brown, Rebecca Davies, Charlie Jane Herbert, Lauren Hookway, Danielle Riley, Laura Watson, Michelle Whitehead

AUSTRALIA
Letitia Collins, Jess Snowden, Lucy Millikin, Kayleigh Clarke, Ebony Clarke, Latisha Bevear
