IC11 Squad - Swedish Elks named

International Cup 2011

The Swedish Elks are the latest team to name their squad for the IC11, with players from across the country represented.

The Elks have a very strong southern and western Swedish element, with the Helsingborg Saints supplying nine members to the Elks (including captain Johan Lantz), Port Malmö following with seven, and the Gothenburg Beserkers with six representatives in the squad.

The remaining six members of the 22-man squad include four from the Stockholm local league, one from the Karlstad Eagles, and one currently playing suburban footy in Melbourne.

Coaching the squad will be Daniel McClaer, who steered the Elks to their 3rd place finish in last year's inaugural European Championships.

The cult figure and man-mountain is not playing this time?  Mats Wurmbac, 208 cm.  Is he still playing footy in Sweden?

Mats would have made the squad but his job situation made it impossible for him to participate. He still plays footy and is a team mate of 'Elk' Rickard Barrefelt at the Solna Axemen in Stockholm. Mats also played for Germany in last year's European Championship.

IC11 Squad - Swedish Elks named
Authored by: Aaron Richard on Friday, July 29 2011 @ 05:25 pm ACST

 Sweden today announced an addition to the squad - number 17 Carl Löwenborg, who plays with the Mordialloc Bloods in Melbourne's Southern FL.  Carl moved to Australia six years ago at age 25, and will reportedly be an experienced and valuable addition to the Elks.
