Big regional England contingent in GB Bulldogs at Euro Champs

Great to see another 3 Welshman from the WARFL make the Bulldogs squad!

From 2008 that's now 9 Welsh players from the WARFL who have represented GB being David Carpenter, Liam Corbett, Tom Gillard, Tom Judson, Gareth Sturge (Cardiff Double Blues), Andrew Atack, Ed Doe, Mark Horsman, David James (South Cardiff Panthers). Also not forgetting AFL Britain Southern league's Tom Case from the Chippenham Redbacks who is also the captain of Wales.

Great work from the WARFL, the numbers can only get better as time goes on. Good work as well to first-year English clubs Wolverhampton and Sheffield in getting some reps in.

I'm wondering why there haven't been more SARFL players in the GB Bulldogs over the years... presumably it's partly because they haven't been at the events such as the Brit Cup that act as selection trials?

I think there are some Scotsmen in there who play at English clubs, but none from the SARFL so far.

Is Tom Gillard a relation of the new Aussie PM, she is Welsh born after all - the British Bulldogs might be able to get her on board along ala the Western Bulldogs?

Lol, the same thought crossed my mind. No idea if they're related... don't know how common a name it is.

Her original home town was Barry, home of the Vale Warriors who kicked off in the WARFL this year.
