The closest match on the second day was the one between Hong Kong China and Poland with the small Asian country edging out Poland 18 – 14. After being level at the end of Q1 the Hong Kong team were particularly strong at the end of each subsequent quarter, each time extending a narrow one goal lead into 3 or 4. Hungary had opened the day with a relatively easy win against South Africa (18 – 5) whilst in the middle of the day the two newcomers played with China beating Turkey (20 – 9) and England beating the spirited Dominican Republic team 20 – 8, after being only two ahead (7 – 5) at half time.
The top seeds featured in the final two games with The Netherlands beating hosts the Czech Republic 31 – 9 and Chinese Taipei defeating Germany 25 – 13.
After two days the top scorers are Blake Palfreyman (ENG) with 12 and Ya-Wen Lin (TPE) with 11.
