With the World Championships just over a month away, it's high time to start looking at some of the top contenders a lot deeper.

News is starting to hit the wire that the FIL member vote on the Iroquois - Germany proposal has come back in, and that the Iroquois Nationals will be placed back in the Blue Division for the upcoming world lacrosse championships in Denver this Summer while Germany will be bumped out of the Blue Division.
The Iroquois were voted back into the Blue Division for the 2014 World Championships in Denver, but now it looks like Germany may be getting knocked out of the top division to make room for the Nationals. The matter is up for a vote this month by the FIL member nations.
The Iroquois are 2-1 agains the US in Bowhunter Cup games, and 3-0 against the US at the WILC. The Iroquois won last year's Bowhunter Cup 12-10. The Nationals are sending out a relatively seasoned group of players, and they will have plenty of offensive fire power. The US is sending out a younger team, with good box pedigrees.
