Player Bio

AT A Glance

Player Honours: 2nd Best and Fairest 2012.
Brownlow Medal: 2014 votes 6; career votes 19.
Draft history: 2010 NAB AFL Draft 1st round selection(Gold Coast) No. 2 overall.

A calf injury forced Bennell to miss the first five rounds of last season, but the gifted West Australian made up for lost time with another strong year.

Returning as a half-forward, he kicked multiple goals in his first three games and, by season’s end, had developed his game to the point where he was Gold Coast’s equal best contested-ball winner in the final month.

Bennell’s round 14 performance against Geelong at Metricon Stadium was one of the individual displays of the year, as he gathered 27 disposals, took 11 marks and kicked a career-best 6.3 to help lift the SUNS to a memorable win.

He signed a three-year contract extension and, at 22, is one of the club’s most important players.
