The squad took part in the 2017 IWRF European Division A Championships, though there is still a question mark over their 2018 World Championship participation. Stuart Robinson, who also represents GB in the Invictus Games, said: “I’m home after a week away in Germany at the European Championships.

“Probably the most mentally demanding week for myself since injury. It took and will take a lot of psychological robustness to help digest, however my main focus was always for the squad to retain their title. The squad lived upto their name so fingers crossed for a bright future.”
