The hard-luck story of 2017, Ben Hurley’s year was ruled out almost before it began with a foot injury putting him on the sidelines for the entirety of his debut season. Now back amongst the playing group, Hurley’s commitment to his rehabilitation and support for his players while on the shelf displayed his character on the way to earning a second year at the club. He is a strong defender capable of playing on a wide array of forwards.
