Bennell fined by Dockers

Harley Bennell has been fined $10,000 by Fremantle with $5,000 suspended for the next 12-months after his latest indiscretion.

Bennell spoke with coach Ross Lyon and senior management on Tuesday morning after the club launched an investigation into suspect behaviour on Saturday. 

Fremantle general manager of football operations Chris Bond said the meeting focused on Bennell's future. 

“We have an agreed action plan as how to best assist Harley with his personal wellbeing and his return to playing football,” Bond said.

“Given Harley’s previous commitment to rehabilitation and training in accordance with his program, we are confident that he will give himself the best chance to get back to playing.

“The agreed off-field action plan includes Harley working with an external expert counsellor to assist in dealing with personal issues."
