The reaction 6Li(3He,n)8B was studied at Laboratori Nazionali di Legnaro in the framework of the EUROnu Design Study for a Beta Beam facility at CERN. The 8B production cross section was determined through neutron angular distribution by using the time-of-flight technique. Thanks to the high statistics achieved, the neutron angular distribution for the population of the 8B first excited state has been measured for the first time. Discrepancies with other available data sets for 8B ground state population are discussed and interpreted in the framework of DWBA calculations. Further measurements at beam energies above 10 MeV are needed to clarify the behaviour of the angular distribution
