At the recent 2011 World Championship of American Football in Austria, two of the Buccaneers’ senior playing squad represented their country with pride – and great success!
Linebackers James McFadzean and Layke Rossiello competed in all three matches for the green and gold against the USA (eventual winners), Mexico, Germany and in the final for 5th place against host nation Austria.
Both players were outstanding with many tackles and assists, whilst James was awarded the Australian MVP for the Mexico game on the back of 3 solo tackles, 4 assists and a sack.
For all the statistics from all four games and to read more about how our boys played, check out the official Australian Outback website.
The club would like to congratulate James MacFadzean and Layke Rossiello who have been selected to play in the Australian Team in the IFAF World Cup in Austria in July.
The boys fly out on the 25th of June to the Australian Pre Camp at the Australian Institute of Sport in the ACT prior to going to Austria.
Congratulations to both players and good luck to them and the Australian “Outback” National team as they take on the world.
