After having an affair in which he had with a Richmond Tigers sales rep and Damien Hardwick, AFL coach, he broke his silence

After an affair with Tigers sales representative, Richmond coach Damien Hardwick decided to speak out.

Alexandra Crow was believed to be the Tigers coach and has been dating her since the start of the 2020 season.

Hardwick’s affair with the club worker is widely believed to have caused the split of his marriage and divorce from Danielle.

The 48 year-old was suspected by close friends of having an affair just before the Tigers’ historic 2019 Premiership win.

“I can understand the interest. I play a public role,” he stated to 7News when he arrived in Punt Road oval for pre-season training.

Damien Hardwick briefly spoke to reporters Monday. He asked the public for privacy but said that he can understand the ‘interests’ in his affair.

According to some reports, Tigers coach Damien Hardwick has split from Danielle Hardwick, his wife.

It would be a great idea to take a step back from the crowd and allow everyone space and time.

Hardwick said that he would support his club if asked.


Last week, Tigers announced that it did not have concerns about Hardwick’s new relationship.

Captain Trent Cotchin declined an interview with the media. Vice-captain Jack Riewoldt confirmed that their coach had spoken to him personally.

‘I don’t think that it’s going to have any impact. Reporters were informed by Riewoldt that Damien is a solid enough character to be able separate his personal and his professional lives.


“He’s shown in the last four years that he has been arguably the finest coach in the land and will continue to support me and us over the next period.

Jack Riewoldt, Tigers vice Captain, said Monday that his coach had addressed the matter personally.

Riewoldt stated Hardwick had been really solid’ as the Tigers aimed to challenge him for their fourth premiership.

He said that ‘So, we’re eager to get out the train,’

Daily Mail Australia reported hours prior that Hardwick was reportedly seen arm-in–arm with his mistress well before they spent any time together at Richmond Tigers’ COVID secure team hub.

It was previously thought that the Tigers coach Alexandra Crow had been dating Alexandra Crow during the 2020 season, when she was living in the biosecure team bubble.

Hardwick’s affair with the club worker is widely blamed in the breaking up of his marriage to Danielle. According to reports, the couple split last month.

Riewoldt said that he was taken by surprise at his coach’s marital split.

He said that you cannot foresee what would happen, but it happens in everyone’s lives. We just move on, he added.

It is obviously sad that Dimma’s marriage to Danielle has ended. Dimma had been a significant part of our football group.

“But the Hardwick family’s been such a great support network for our family and they will continue to be one for us as well.

“You don’t wish to see a relationship end and a marriage dissolve, but this happens and we support those who are affected.

Jack Riewoldt commented that Hardwick had been really solid’ as the Tigers aimed to challenge for their fourth Premiership under his direction.

Danielle Hardwick, a Brighton resident and a mother of two, is continuing to live in Melbourne’s eastern suburban areas. On Tuesday night, she posted on social media in a dig at Damien, her ex husband.

Rod Law, an analyst who addressed the split on Sam Newman’s “You Cannot be Serious” podcast, said that he had spotted Hardwick with his new flame in May – just before the Tigers CoVID hub was created.

Newman stated, “They [the media] were citing that the COVID locking down was the origins for the relationship to this person who worked alongside Damien,”

“We think that’s just not right.”

Rocket (Law), who was sitting right beside me, said that he saw Damien Hardwick and the woman.

Rod (Law), what was her age when she saw her striding along the street arm-in arm with Damien?

Law indirectly confirmed the story as a response.

Law replied that she had noticed something strange, and that she sent a message asking “Has anyone received any information about a split?”

“I took it at face price and kept it in my pocket.”

Friends suspect Hardwick, Alexandra Crow, of having an affair as far back as 2019.

Hardwick is still on club-approved annual leave. The scandal is not being addressed.

The winner takes it all. Tigers coach Damien Hardwick earned the club three premierships within four years.

Alexandra Crow is the new Tigers coach. She is the owner of a home together with Daniel Giese, Carlton Football Club executive
