Fremantle coach Ross Lyon admits the club is still searching for answers to fix Harley Bennell's calf issues, while star midfielder Stephen Hill will miss the start of the AFL season with a setback of his own.

Dog Returned to Shelter for Being 'Too Nice' Quickly Finds New Forever Home

  Dog Returned to Shelter for Being 'Too Nice' Quickly Finds New Forever Home The 4-year-old pup loves to be petted and cuddled.The 4-year-old pup was returned to a shelter in Atlanta for being "too nice." Her previous owner wanted an aggressive watchdog and Helena is not that at all.

Fremantle haven't given up hope of Harley Bennell returning this AFL season after a series of issues on and off the field. The 24-year-old has proven to be a spectacular trade bust for Fremantle, with persistent calf injuries keeping him from playing a game for the Dockers since joining them from Gold

Former Gold Coast player Bennell is yet to play a match for the Dockers due to ongoing serious calf injuries. The 24-year-old twice interrupted the three-quarter time huddle of the match between Peel Thunder and Swan Districts to speak to his cousin Traye Bennell before being spoken to by Dockers

Bennell has been plagued by calf injuries since crossing to Fremantle at the end of 2015.

The 25-year-old suffered another grade one calf strain four weeks ago, but he's still yet to return to full training despite the club initially diagnosing the setback as a three-week injury.

Fremantle took the drastic step of sending Bennell to Germany at the end of 2016 so he could work with renowned soft tissue specialist Hans-Wilhelm Muller-Wohlfahrt.

Bennell played two AFL games at the back-end of last season, but a return date from his latest calf setback is yet to be set.

Lyon said Bennell was running again but the club was still mapping out a way to avoid any more injury setbacks.

"He's just going to have to build up (again) which is obviously disappointing, but it's sort of the trend we're in," Lyon said.

Switch update makes it easy to add Facebook and Twitter friends

  Switch update makes it easy to add Facebook and Twitter friends Nintendo Switch owners have a new system update awaiting them, and the release notes reveal what 5.0.0 is bringing along. This update also fixes the problem that was hiding some older play activity data, and it adds a notification to let you know when pre-ordered games have unlocked. For parents, the PIN entry now operates from the stick and buttons instead of using an on-screen keyboard, and specific titles can be whitelisted for play, outside of the restricted software settings.

The injury is to the same calf that Bennell hurt in November, which saw him sent to Germany for specialist treatment. Bennell missed all of last season due to issues with his right calf , which scuppered his debut campaign at Freo after being traded from Gold Coast.

WA News. Docker shock: Harley Bennell re-injures troublesome calf . PRIZED Dockers recruit Harley Bennell looks likely to miss the opening weeks of the AFL season after re-injuring his troublesome calf in a WAFL match at the weekend.

"Between Harley and our medical and our (strength and conditioning team) we've got to find a solution because once we do we know we've got a very good player.

"It's a tough period ... but he's buttoned down pretty well and he needs to continue to button down."

Lyon confirmed Hill (calf) would miss the round one clash with the Power in Adelaide on March 24.

And three-time Hawthorn premiership star Brad Hill (quad) could also miss the match.

Fremantle held their season launch on Tuesday and Lyon declared the club had mapped out a plan to win a premiership.

The Dockers are entering the third year of a full-blown rebuild and Lyon was optimistic about what lay ahead.

"We're aiming strategically to win a premiership and move to be consistently in the finals," Lyon said.

"But you just don't want to jump on the end.

"The real joy comes from what you've seen from Richmond and the Bulldogs - years of toil and a rebuild.

"Eight years for the Tigers, six years for the Bulldogs.

"There's no guarantee, but we're after the fruits of our labour."
