The quartet led the competition at the halfway mark on a total of 475 points before scoring 504.4 in the second round.

Their overall total of 979.4 points saw the Polish team celebrate a comfortable win over the host nation.

The victory has seen Poland emerge as the clear favourites for the team competition at the Nordic World Championships in Seefeld scheduled to take place from February 20 until March 3.
