SVNS: Great Britain men’s and women’s reach Grand Final in Madrid

Great Britain’s men and women both qualified for this year’s SVNS Grand Final after finishing eighth overall.

The men were beaten by Ireland in the semi-final in Singapore before claiming the final qualifying place with a 26-5 victory over Australia in the bronze medal match.

The women’s 35-5 victory over Brazil in the group stages secured the last qualifying spot before they were beaten by eventual winners New Zealand in the quarter-finals.

New Zealand claimed the double in the final leg of the league campaign in Singapore as the men beat Ireland in the final to follow the women, who overcame Australia and were also crowned 2024 league winners.

Argentina, meanwhile, became the sixth nation to be crowned men’s league winners for the first time in their history.

The inaugural SVNS Grand Final takes place in Madrid between 31 May and 2 June.

GB men’s captain Robbie Fergusson says progress makes the tough moments “worthwhile” as they also look forward to next month’s final Olympic qualifying tournament as they bid to reach Paris 2024.
