Ben Hurley’s tale of resilience paid off in 2018, after what was a frustrating start at the Northern Blues. After initially making his way onto the Club’s senior list in 2017, a foot injury put Hurley on the sidelines for the entirety of his debut year. However, outstanding commitment to his rehabilitation and strong form at local level saw Hurley rewarded with a VFL debut late last year. With a sensational mark and a win in his first game, the defender will be hoping of more memorable moments to come in Blue in 2019.
