Danish Vikings & Irish Banshees Take Euro Honours

Europe
After an exciting day out in Cork, Ireland, the Euro Cup is done and dusted with the Denmark Vikings once again taking out the Men’s Division whilst the Irish Banshees won the women’s title. Both teams have now claimed their third titles with Denmark winning their first title since their back-to back tournaments in 2014/5. The Irish Banshees also won the women’s title in 2016 in Lisbon, Portugal and in London in 2014.

The Denmark Vikings won their way through the round matches and finals to meet the Irish Warriors in the final. They defeated last year’s winners, the England Dragonslayers, in the semi-final before defeating the Warriors by 14 points in the final.

The Irish Banshees and England Vixens had little trouble advancing to the women’s final with big semi-final wins, but the Banshees were far too good for 2017 winners, the England Vixens, taking the final by a commanding 25 points.
Each Euro Cup throws up special and noteworthy performances by some of the games less developed teams. This year was no exception with the Tel Aviv Cheetahs, Russian Tsars and Czech Republic Dragons enjoying exciting wins. The Swedish Elks will be delighted after recording two wins for the tournament whilst the Austrian Avalanche team had an impressive tournament with two wins and a draw against the Scottish Clansmen.

In the Men’s draw, the French Coqs won the Euro Bowl downing the Netherlands. The Welsh Red Dragons defeated the Sweden Elks to win the Euro Plate. In the women’s draw, the German Eagles won the Bowl defeating the Scottish Sirens whilst the Denmark Valkyries defeated the Welsh Wyverns for the Plate.

Danish Vikings & Irish Banshees Take Euro Honours
Authored by: Cam Homes on Sunday, October 14 2018 @ 05:34 pm ACDT

I watched the whole tournament and thoroughly enjoyed it, eventually falling into bed at about 4 o'clock in the morning but missed the results of the 3rd-4th place Play/Off matches and can't find them any where on the website this morning/arvo. I'm wondering if the games were actually played, also the 7th-8th Place P/O match was listed on the fixture, haven't seen any result published for that match either.

Seen or heard anything Wes?

I reckon the most meritorious effort has to be the German Eagles women winning the bowl on their first participation in the event.
What an effort??
Wow!

Agree re German women's team effort - a wonderful performance. As for the results, I have taken info directly from AFL Europe's updates. Will see if I can unearth anything else. I also watched as many games as I could before falling asleep, but my overall comment is that the standard, to me, just keeps getting better. Thoroughly absorbing.

The Danes always appear to do very well at this tournament. Are they really as consistently strong as the Irish?
