In Breaking News from 1 September, our early morning friend, Mr Rooster has recently and selflessly reported, “Rooster wins German Flag”.
The match was also won by the Rheinland Lions over the very strong and very Australian Munich. Rooster says the Lions are “mostly German, and our best players are all German… the Aussies are too old.”
“This was the toughest match of footy that I have ever played in Europe… the ground was full size (at least as full size as the SCG is), and the pressure and tackling was amazing… the crunching tackles were relentless with some of our German players showing real footy nouse.
“The win took place on September 1st in Koln, Germany… just 5 years and 1 day since I lead the Lions onto the paddock for the first time in Dusseldorf when we hosted a tournament at the end of August 2002.”
