Andy Fuller pays tribute to everybody who joined together to make yesterday's GB Lions Students' fixture against Sweden a huge success:
"Dear Teams and Athletic Unions,
This weekend saw our Great Britain Student team travel to Sweden to take on their Swedish counterparts in a historic first encounter.
In a pulsating game the Great Britain team ran out victors by a score of 41 – 21.
Whilst the result is important, I write to draw attention and pay tribute to all those involved in the programme and to say thank you to you.
Our players and staff have been a credit to our sport and their respective institutions in the way they have approached their responsibilities in representing their country.
Moreover, if we look back to the start of the campaign when over 300 athletes from pretty much every corner of the country attended our trial camps we find that this positive attitude, allied to fantastic commitment, is pervasive across our sport and again reflects well on all those who participate in and support our great sport.
It is therefore appropriate to say thank you to all and to promise that I and all those involved, will continue to strive to match your commitment in everything we do in British student football.
