    Harley Balic club statement
    fremantlefc.com.au

    17 May 2017 2:19 PM


    Fremantle second-year player Harley Balic has been granted an indefinite leave of absence from the club.

    “The club and Harley have agreed that it is in his best long-term interest to take a leave of absence to deal with a personal issue,” General manager of football operations Chris Bond said.

    “As we do with all of our players, we will continue to provide Harley with all the support and resources that he requires.

    “Harley has acquitted himself well in four games for Fremantle since making his debut in round three this season and we look forward to his future contribution to the club.”

    There will be no further comment from the club on this matter.

    So two Harleys in the garage now and not one roadworthy...

    Hope whatever it is can be sorted out as the kid was def. showing signs of improvement with each game.

    Shit.... Hope the poor bugger is okay.

    Let's not freak out. This could be anything from home-sickness to something much, much more serious.

    Speculation is pointless.

    Hi guys, pardon the intrusion. Carlton supporter here. There has been a rumour from a reliable source that Carlton is/was targeting him to come back to Victoria. I wonder if this is a Cam McCarthy type situation?

    If it's this trade him for a second and move on.

    Can we actually get a break with any of these kids. JFC

    Seems odd if it was homesickness. He's finally cracked it!

    new rule - no recruiting anyone called Harley :mad:

    This sucks for everyone, me being the completely un-empathetic person I am when it comes to sportspeople immediately thought "what's his trade value" ??

    Well... We do pretty well when it comes to homesickness to be fair.

    Dat retention rate.

    Be kinda ironic if we take a punt on a talented but injured player again but this time we actually get the injury right and he's fit and playing!... But now homesick.

    could be but Freo are pretty good if someone wants to leave (ie: roberton who we really wanted to keep). Sounds a bit more serious.

    That statement is so frustratingly vague. It could literally be anything.

    Could someone please pm me with some rumours, baseless speculation or innuendo on this matter?

    Otherwise I will be forced to make up my own.

    I doubt its home sickness. Probably something much worse to be granted indefinite leave. Such as an illness in the family.
