    I'm not allowing myself to get excited about what Harley can provide to Freo in the future, but I'm celebrating what he was able to do today.
    Congratulations to him, Freo and Peel for getting him through a match. Fingers crossed he pulls up healthy and is raring to go again next week.

    Pretty much just played Harley watch today at the Peel game, he was heavily managed, not only in instructions to stay deep almost in the square for most of his bursts but also to limit his high intensity moments, no repeat tackling efforts, no spoiling etc, you could see he was very mindful of this all game which lead to a few disjointed moments, half leads and the likes.


    Despite all this when the ball was in his vicinity he was very clean, after blowing out the cobwebs his first touch or two, great.

    He was also regularly doing small low intensity shuttles to keep warm, not once did Myles or the other physios give him any extra attention and he looked completely fine to me.


    Bring on next week!

    I think he will play 3-4 wafl games then all the rest of the afl season. If he does well in the afl he ain't going back to wafl footy.

    Assuming he stays fit, they will qualify him for Peel finals, then play him AFL and then back to Peel for the finals. Ross pretty much said as much.

    I am guessing like everyone else but I reckon this is on the money apart from the fact that once he plays AFL he will never go back.....regardless of peel qualifiers

    for a team crying out for goal hungry and talented forwards, those 2014 Bennell highlights are bloody exciting!

    You don't see it on the video but his one-hand pick up was ridiculous.

    Agree.

    I think he's more talented than Walters.

    Shame Yarren didn't have his head screwed on properly. Would of made a dangerous forward line

    Yeah agree with that. Bigger, faster with similar skills and a bit more flair.

    Hope he gets on the field.

    I don't think anyone could disagree. Bennell is a top 5 talent in the league.

    Going to be exciting having them both up forward. Speaking of Sonny's talent as well did any pick up that neat handball receive he collected up the wing on Sunday, the handballer misjudged a bit and Sonny pivoted around to receive from his right side instead just perfectly in the space of about 250ms.
