BEIRUT: After suffering early defeats to Namibia, Poland, France and Canada in the World University Cup, Lebanon will play Mexico in the Bowl finals on the final day of action Friday.
From their early encounters with some of the biggest teams in this tournament, Lebanon’s fitness has proved to be their downfall against well-drilled and experienced sides.
Lebanon had to make a number of replacements in the third game versus Namibia due to injuries.
Lebanon had a full day of well deserved rest Thursday, before their final game where they hope to beat the Mexicans, who are no walk over as Malaysia found out in the early rounds.
No matter what is the result of the bowl final, the national team will go back to Lebanon with much more experience then when they arrived that a number of players will put to use in the UAE International 7s in early November as well as the Dubai 7s in late November.
The team will arrive back in Lebanon Sunday, 15 July.
