Note: Yesterday saw some player movement as group 1 lost seven players who moved on up to the group 2. Despite this restructuring there were a number of players who still hadn’t taken part in training camp in the first three days including Laurent Brossoit, Nelson Nogier, Logan Stanley and Anthony Bitetto.
