Four Cobras Named in Griffin Cup Extended Squads

Dutch Coach Kane Krlic and his German counterpart Bob Doughton have named training squads for the upcoming Griffin Cup Test match, with four Cobras players among them. Captain Daan van Rossum and Halfback Ciaran Jaras have been called up for the Dutch Lions while veteran playmaker Liam Doughton and utility David Greiner have both received the tap for Germany.

“I’m really excited about it. Especially to stand with Liam, the German Legend with about 20 caps and my best friend, on the pitch to represent my country” said an obviously ecstatic Greiner of his first call up to the German squad, “A dream would become real.”

The match kicks off in Osnabrück at 15:30 Saturday 26th August.
