In an improved performance, Ireland lost 1-0 to Great Britain in their second, uncapped training match this week in Bisham Abbey with the Brits scoring after 20 minutes from a penalty corner.
The Irish defended better this afternoon with Bridget Cleland standing out but goals still proved hard to come by. Ireland complete the trip on Wednesday with their third challenge game at 12pm.
