One of the hardest things about expat life is saying goodbye to friends, which unfortunately happens all too often.
The Doha Kangaroos farewelled three of its favourite sons over summer, with Simon Davies, Chris Yue and Dylan Alexander all heading back home to Australia.
Between them, these three collected 2 Best and Fairest, 2 Best Team Man, 4 Leading Goalkicker and 2 Coaches Awards as well as all having played in the 2014 Premiership side!
They will also be missed off the field as they were all leaders in re-establishing Auskick here in Qatar.
We wish Simon, Chris, Dylan and their families all the best for the future
