Luke Tomlinson and John Paul Clarkin will lead their respective countries — England and New Zealand — in the Coronation Cup next Sunday (25 July).

Held as the showcase match on the Hurlingham Polo Association’s Cartier International Day, the tally currently stands at 3:1 to England with wins for the home team in 1982, 1983 and 2006.

The visitors last won in 1991 but come to this match fresh from beating England in New Zealand earlier in the year.

So they will be keen to repeat that feat here on The Queen’s Ground at Guards Polo Club.
England will field the same team that faced the mighty Argentines last year and defeated an impressive Australian team in 2008.

Joining Luke on the Audi-sponsored squad is his brother Mark Tomlinson (7 goals), James Beim (7) and Malcolm Borwick (6).

The New Zealand team has a slightly different line-up from earlier in the year.

Simon Keyte (7) is back from injury and takes his place in the EFG International-sponsored New Zealand team, alongside Tommy Wilson (6) and Sam Hopkinson (6), who is making his debut at this event.
