Looks like Harley will find a new home, a few clubs interested. Good luck to him.

You would have to question the culture of those clubs wouldn’t you 58s? Surely they will become a laughing stock? Oh hang on it’s Sydney and Geelong who are seriously looking at picking him up. That’s ok then.

If he comes back and plays some good footy I'd be seriously looking at Freo's sports scientists and medicos not the clubs that showed an interest in him.

Long way to go yet. There were many times at Freo when he looked ready to go only to break down again. Having said that I hope he can make a comeback with some club

Yep spot on BC and didn't his manager Colin Young refer Harley to the calf guru over there? That's puzzling 🤔.

Latest report they say they found 2 extra muscles behind his knee which they have removed. I assume one of his knees but he's blown both calves several times.

Predictable, unfortunately.

Injury-prone former Docker Harley Bennell reportedly cops another calf setback during pre-season training with Melbourne Demons

Very unfortunate. I really do feel bad for the lad, could be all over for his AFL career.

What’s the old saying? If it sounds too good to be true it probably is. After a couple of years with calf problems at GC then 4 years at Fremantle who took the drastic step to fly him to Germany to get blood injections, you would think both clubs had investigated every possible cause, weakness, cure and rehabilitation possible.

Then suddenly some guru claims to have found something no one else did. Maybe all Harley will end up out of it is a couple of ugly scars behind his knees. Melbourne have probably got nothing to lose by giving him a chance for 12 months and see how it goes but the biggest cost will be human resources.

Well done Harley for making the Dees list. Hope you have a good run, just not against the Eagles!!!
