Scottish Swimming's coverage of the Water Polo Commonwealth Water Polo Championship finals

Hosting its first event the new Aberdeen Sports Village has seen some great Water Polo action this week in the Commonwealth Water Polo Championships.

The competition comes to an end on Saturday (12th) with the gold, silver and bronze medals to be decided on finals afternoon.

Despite a difficult week for Scotland’s ladies, they are still in with a chance of a bronze medal as they face South Africa and Wales on Friday in the round robin.

South Africa are favourites to take the bronze but the Scots will be hoping to upset the odds in front of the home crowd.

Scotland’s men also have the chance of claiming the bronze as they too face South Africa in the Bronze medal match on Saturday afternoon.

After being narrowly beaten by the South Africans in the week 9-8, Rhys Tamlyn’s men will be hoping for revenge.

In the womens final England will also be looking for revenge against Canada after they lost 9-8 to the Canadians in the group stages, the swim-off for that one is 3:30pm Saturday.

Despite one round of group matches still to play left, England and Malta have already booked their place in the mens final and they pla straight after the womens in the last match of the tournament at 5pm Saturday.
