AFLG & AFLGW Grand Finals 2019

The final hurdle is often the highest – not literally of course, but metaphorically speaking. As Grand Final day loomed and the opportunity to snare back-to-back premierships arrived, the Hamburg Dockers reflected on its 2019 to date: it had vanquished every opponent… it had leaped over, snuck around or simply barged through every obstacle that...

Semi Final 2019 Report

H Wyatt was lucky to escape with his jaw in tact. Hamburg had run away convincing winners in Frankfurt against the Redbacks, the siren had only just sounded, when Wyatt laid a ferocious tackle on his ageing Redbacks opponent. The pair have history.

Round 5 2019

It loomed as the Dockers’ greatest premiership defence challenge to date: taking a side lacking in star power to Germany’s fat-cat financial centre to take on the much-improved Frankfurt Redbacks.

Round 4 2019 / Round 2 AFLGW Report

Another away game meant another dawn departure at Hamburg’s HBF…which usually means a quiet start to any road trip. Then again when you’re holstering a story-telling arsenal as deadly as Manny Gaulding, an early start simply means a few extra hours to unload those narratives on fresh ear drums. Sitting up front next to the...

Round 3 2019 Report

The first home game of the season is always an occasion to celebrate and with the return of favourite son P May and the debuts of an even favouriter sons in R Gopinath and C Laverick, the Dockers were intent on doing so against Dresden and Rhineland. The three-way match-day was spiced up even further...
