“Another step taken in the right direction,” Head Coach Alan Keane commented. “We were better on the boards, our pace and disruption on defence was much improved.
“It was important to get the win today for a few reasons. We have a long way to go and a lot of work to do. However, guys stepped up today, while others needs to give more, which they will.”
GB will now fly to Italy for another three preparation games.
