The AFLG’s initial tournament of the 2016 season, the 9’s format, is two thirds complete with the Round 6 matches played last week in Dresden. The format, introduced last season, sees two Hamburg teams (Swans and Pirates) as well as the Frankfurt Redbacks, Munich Kangaroos, Berlin Crocs, Rheinland Lions, Freiberg Taipans, Stuttgart Emus and Dresden Wolves battle out the honours over 10 rounds of 9’s format, with a Grand Final on September 10th.

The 9’s home and away format finishes with Round 7 and Round 8 played concurrently in both Munich for southern German teams and in Hamburg for northern teams. After that the 16’s competition will commence with a four team competition over four rounds between July and September featuring the Munich Kangaroos, Hamburg Dockers, Berlin Crocs and Rheinland Lions.

The Munich Kangaroos lead the field in the 9’s competition, undefeated with nine wins. It could be a battle royale for the second Grand Final berth with the Lions, Crocs and Redbacks all capable of grabbing the spot. Interestingly, the Dresden Wolves continue their rapid development and hold fifth place.

Following are the results of all rounds to date, taken from the AFLG website, as well as remaining games.
