From the lower leagues Lamont Bryan, Andy Hoggins, Ben Dent, Ben White were all born in Germany due to the father being in the Army. Steve Michael and Dane Tilse have German Heritage as does Paul Gallen and his brother Peter. Queensland Assistant Coach Anthony Seibold played for Germany as did his brother Damien. Matej Beslic is studying in Halifax and is at Siddal. Jimmy Keinhorst father , Wolfgang, comes from Bochum and Jimmy speaks fluent German just like his 3 brothers. Many big names of the past have German Heritage Brad Fittler, Brian Niebling, Sam Backo, Trevor Gilmeister, Andrew Ettingshausen etc

Ben Fritz in NSW Cup and you maybe a chance with many Samoans as Western Samoa used to be a German colony, hence the number of german surnames like Winterstein, etc, etc
