It is with great regret that the Munich Kangaroos announce the death of Craig Freer on Sunday 27th March 2016. Craig was a legend of the club having played and been involved in its administration since his arrival in Munich in the late 1990s. A big bloke with an even bigger personality and a huge, ready laugh, Craig was a generous and valued friend to all of those fortunate enough to know him over the years and a great supporter of the team. Although easy going, in his playing days he could win a game for you off his own boot when his fire was up. He has been missed on the field for many years, and we will now miss him in life.
Our condolences go to his wife, Heike, and young son, Ben, for their tragic loss, as well as to his family in Australia. You, as well as Craig, are in our thoughts and we are deeply saddened by his passing.
Well done to everyone involved in making it 15 wins from 15 games in the 9’s competition. It was overall a deserved victory. For those trying to count the 15th win, it was the boat race.
Well done to Rheece Bartel for Best on Ground in the GF and also to Lachie Bell who came runner up in the Competition Best & Fairest. Great stuff to you both and well deserved!
