Bennell to make return to football at Peel Thunder

PIC: File

The Dockers player will play his first game for the year when he takes to the field this weekend for Peel Thunder.

Harley Bennell will finally get a look in on some football action this weekend when he pulls on the boots in the WAFL.  

Bennell's return to AFL was postponed this season thanks to a grade one tear to his calf while training at Peel Thunder in February.  

It's not the first time calf problems have troubled Bennell, he's only played twice for the Dockers since being traded from Gold Coast two seasons ago.

Earlier this year Bennell was fined $15,000 with $5000 suspended, for his involvement in a "disturbance at a licensed premises in Fremantle on Sunday night”.

Peel Thunder host Claremont at Bendigo Bank Stadium this Saturday.
