Before the tournament started the Camino Real Team Buenos Aires with Oscar Mancini (+4), Matias Machado (+4) and Tomas Ruiz Guinazu (+6) was said to be the favorite – but this should not be an obstacle for Max Charlton (+5), George Meyrick (+5) and Jamie Morrison (+4) of the home team MINT Team London who was not to be shocked in yesterdays final. In a game that was not to be outbidden on drama and thrill the Brits asserted themselves against the Argentines closely with 8:7.

After a drawn first chukker (1:1) the MINT Team London squared in the second chukker : two goals on the balance of Max Charlton and Jamie Morrison. It somehow appeared that the games was over for the Camino Royal Team Buenos Aires.

But thanks to the darling of the public Oscar Mancini and Matias Machado the Argentines could catch up to one goal – and there came the shot of Machado. In the middle of the third chukker the +4-scorer took the ball very deep in his own half of the field, started a keen shot high above the heads in the direction of the goal – the ball flew and flew, the audience was not able to remain seated- and landed directly into the goal. Two points for Camino Royal Team Buenos Aires. Now the Argentines were only one point behind and everything was possible.

More two-point goals by George Meyrick and Matias Machado – already the second for the +4-scorer in this match – followed. In the last chukker the MINT Team London was trying to save their advance over the time by intensifying their defense until the bell rang.

Three days full of polo action in the middle of London`s downtown was over. In sum six international teams with handicaps of +14 fought for victory at Hurlingham Park at river Themes in London Fulham.
