Next up for the Warriors was the North Wales Dragons. After a tight game in Nottingham in March, which the Dragons lost, they were out for some payback against the Irish and were keen to dish it out in their home venue. Yet again fans were treated to another nail- biter but unfortunately for the Welsh they were once again unable to break the Warriors and were on the wrong end of a 50 – 43 score line.
Storm were back on court to face the Warriors once again. The Warriors were determined to make up for the pervious defeat but try as the may they had no answer for the speed and experience of Troy Collins and co. The final score was Stoke Mandeville Storm 58 Gaelic Warriors 21.
This weekend also saw the players switching round teams for some “All-Star” games. This gave everyone a chance to play some “fun” games and work with different players. While these were all light hearted games the hitting was as hard as ever and no love was lost as players who would usually be on the same side battled for every loose ball. This also allowed some of the less experienced players the opportunity to play and learn from former G.B. Paralympic team members Justin Frishburg and Tony Stackhouse and current team member Troy Collins.
Gaelic Warriors and I.W.A. Sport would like to thank Coloplast, the officials, volunteers and all involved with the weekend for their help in making it a huge success.
