New recruit Joel Hamling wants the Dockers to taste premiership glory too

Fremantle recruit Joel Hamling says last year’s premiership with the Western Bulldogs is now a distant memory and he is focused on repeating the success with the Dockers.

Hamling arrived at the Dockers in a unique position of being a premiership full-back despite playing only 23 games.

He will be a key part of the team’s defence this year and will play on some of the best forwards in the AFL.

Hamling said his goal was to achieve success as a Docker instead of enjoying the fruits of the past.

There are injury setbacks for both the Fremantle Dockers and Collingwood

“For me it’s to start again. I want to win another one. That’s what I’m here for,” he said.

“I’m here to hopefully bring a premiership to Freo in the coming years. I start again from where I was. It’s a new chapter for me now.”

Hamling started his career at Geelong before moving to the Bulldogs. He will play against the Cats in round one and is likely to be opposed by Tom Hawkins.

He said training against Hawkins during his time at the Cattery would make a huge difference when the season begins.

“Tom’s an exciting player like all the key forwards are,” he said.

“I did play on him in the early part of my career – I trained against him. He’s such a great talent, he’s kicked a lot of goals and he’s proven in big games as well.

“It’s good to have that experience and it’s good to have 21other teammates out there to support me in my role.”
