PLAYERS | Adam Docker


Panther 518

42 matches [2012-2015]

8 points [2 tries]


Wollongong junior played for the St. George Illawarra Under 20s before joining the Panthers in 2012.

After playing the majority of the season for the Windsor Wolves in the NSW Cup, he made his debut late in the 2012 season, coming off the bench in the final three premiership matches.

Making 17 appearances in 2013, he earned a starting position at lock. A noted hard hitter in defence, he had formed a formidable partnership with second rower Nigel Plum and dubbed as the “Bash Brothers”.

Making 21 appearances in 2014 and having cemented the lock position, Docker made his representative debut for Country. He was later named in the train on squad for Australia, although unfortunately did not make the cut. However, he was tagged as a future New South Wales representative by attending the Emerging Blues camp in the 2015 pre-season.

He would be restricted to just one NRL appearance in 2015. Unfortunately, he would be forced into retirement at the end of the season due to no cartilage left in his left knee leaving him with high grade arthritis.
