Fremantle Docker Harley Bennell (pictured) says his long time out of the game hasn’t lessened his desire to play footy at the highest level.

The 24 year old Indigenous All Star hasn’t played a game for the Dockers since crossing from the Gold Coast at the end of the 2015 season.

Bennell was joined on the clubs long term injury list by Nat Fyfe, Michael Johnson and Aaron Sandilands in 2016 and says while it was difficult being out of the game for so long, he hasn’t lost any of his appetite for footy and can’t wait for an opportunity to replay the faith the club has shown in him.
