Seattle Seawolves Comments
“We are excited to announce 2019 re-sign, Dan Trierweiler. The hooker has a consistent throw in with rugby IQ to match it. Trierweiler is strong in the breakdowns on both sides of the ball and is even stronger in open field play with the ball in hand. Welcome back to the Seattle Southside, Dan!”
