Jamie BENNELL

#44  

Age: 28yr 9mth Games: 88 Born: Jun 07, 1990
Height: 179cm Weight: 78kg Position: DEF

2016 Digest:   Struggled for a place in the team last year. Played nine games but dropped on the eve of the finals. The quick backman gives the defensive unit another dimension but he’ll need to start the year well if he’s to push the Grand Final players out.

2016 NAB Cup:   Showed promise as a forward. His versatility is a key for his chances.
