In a thrilling final fight for the Coupe d´Argent at the French Deauville International Polo Club Patrick Eisenchteter (0), Thibault Guillemin (+3), Luke Tomlinson (+8) and Mark Tomlinson (+6) of Team Mungo were able to assert themselves. They won with a score of 8:4,5 against Team Blackstorm. More than 1,000 people in the audience followed the finale.

It did not look like a victory for Team Mungo at the beginning. After Jean Marc Tyberg (0), Clemente Zavaleta (+6), Juan Ruiz Guiñazú (+7) and Martín Joaquín (+2) of Team Blackstorm were leading in the first two chukkas (3,5:2 after the second chukka) Team Mungo turned the game: with the third chukka Mungo left its opponent almost goalless and – thanks to the many goals of Luke Tomlinson (+8) – overtook the lead. Team Blackstorm was not able to fight against this pressure. Team Mungo was unstoppable.

Altogether five teams of the divisions +15 to +17 fought for the Coupe d´Argent from the 14th to the 26th of August 2012 to end the polo season 2012 at Deauville. Top scorer of the tournament with a total of 25 goals was given to Facundo Sola of Team Taladraca. His team was able to win in the petite finale against Team Royal Barriere on Saturday. Most valuable player was awarded to Luke Tomlinson, his horse Maria was the best playing pony.
