The opening game of the Bristol and West Water Polo League took place at the International Sports Village in Newport.

The Division 1 Senior Men’s Game was between last season’s demoted team from the the Premier League, City of Newport, against newly promoted team from Division 2, University of Bath.

Newport were the easy winners at 21-13, with Chris Taylor scoring nine of their goals, and their former captain, James Farror netted six for the home team.

But the student visitors showed tenacity as they refused to roll over and Sam Cooper netted four of their goals before being wrapped up with a misconduct after speaking back to one of the officials.
