Sunday at the European Championships

Sunday is now looking like a crucial day for Wales, as they really need to get at least one win from the day to have a realistic chance of making it past the group stages of the competition. They face Poland at 12:00 Central European Time (11:00 GMT) and then Denmark at 20:00 CET (19:00 GMT).

Poland have entered a totally different team to the competition this year, after their previous team finished 6th in the 2014 Championships’ B-Division. Like Wales, the Poles go into this match having played 2 matches, won one and lost one. Poland’s last match was a very tight win over Belgium which went to an Extra End. Belgium have yet to win a match at the Championships this year, after meeting hosts Denmark in their opening game.

Denmark, who were relegated from the A-Division at last year’s competition, have entered a team which retains the core players of Rasmus Stjerne (skip), Troels Harry (lead) and Olivier Dupont (Alternate, previously Second) but introduces two new players as well. A recently-relegated team playing on home ice, they will be tough to beat.
