Cobi Green Set To Make Club History

Former Outlaw and current Bradford Bulls half-back Cobi Green is set to make club history by being the first player, past or present, to gain a men’s international cap for Rugby League having been named in John Kear’s Wales squad for the 9s World Cup in Australia later this month.

Although this will be the first time an Outlaw has picked up a men’s international cap, the club has a great history of nurturing talent who have gone on to pick up representative honours with Wales or broken in to the ranks of the professionals.

Amongst the list of past and current players to have been capped for Wales after playing for the Outlaws are:

Looking to the future we potentially have another nine Outlaws to add to the list thanks to the sterling efforts of the Outlaw’s Women who have been named in the squad for the upcoming Wales v England match.

We’ve also seen four of our heritage players go on to play professionally:
