Isle of Man
Just one change to the line-up this year with Colin Holland making his debut as Bernie Durcan is unavailable. The team will be looking for an improvement on last year’s third place finish in Group B but this will be a tough ask with games against Ireland, Sweden & Belgium to come.
Captained once again by Stephen Gale, who achieved his best ever result of 4th at the English Masters, the team will need to draw on all of his experience if the Isle of Man are to make that elusive semi-final spot. Hopefully the experience gained last year by both Jayne Smith & Christine Holland will stand them in good stead.
