Notable players

  • James Keinhorst
  • Uwe Jansen
  • European Shield

    Since 2007, Germany has been a participant in the European Shield, the successor to the Central Europe Tri-Nations. In the 2007 Shield, they were beaten in Heidelberg by a strong Serbia side but beat the Czech Republic in Prague, subsequently finishing second.

    In the 2008 European Shield, Germany again defeated the Czech team. However, they lost to the subsequent champions Italy and again took second for the tournament.

    The 2009 European Shield featured the same three sides as in 2008. The first match of the tournament saw Germany lose to the Czech Republic 30–4 in Olomouc. That game marked the first international victory for the Czech team.

    In the 2010 European Shield, Germany lost to the subsequent group winners Serbia and defeated the Czech team, finishing in the second place.
