England Senior Men lost their Ireland tour opener, going down 73-55 to the Melbourne Tigers after a fourth quarter meltdown.
Coach Paul James remained optimistic despite the disappointment:
“Our lack of execution down the stretch was extremely disappointing against a very big and physical Melbourne Tigers team. But yet again we know we are capable of competing at a high level for major parts of the game. We now need to develop mental toughness and discipline down the stretch and I’m sure we can turn these losses into wins.”
