Hancock adds 100 games to premiership in dream Peel career

Saturday, August 1, 2020 - 1:05 AM - by Chris Pike

BECOMING a premiership player with Peel Thunder was nothing but a wild dream as Ben Hancock rose through the club's ranks, but he's now ticked that off and on the way to 100 WAFL games become one of the league's most underappreciated consistent performers.

Hancock could very well be the most underrated player to reach 100 games currently in the competition for how important and consistent a role he continues to play with the Thunder.

With good size and athleticism, and his running ability perhaps the greatest asset, Hancock has now built a career for himself as a hard-running defender and wingman, but that only goes part to the way of summing up what he's meant to the Thunder as he approaches his 100th game.

Dream football return for Tiah Haynes

Friday, July 31, 2020 - 9:44 AM - by Chris Pike

SPORT is capable of providing some of the most remarkable heartfelt stories and the WAFL Women's competition had its own dream return in Round 1 in the form of Subiaco inspiration Tiah Haynes.

It had been two years since Haynes had last run onto the football field and with the devastating knee and shoulder injuries she's been through, you can understand why there were times she doubted whether she could make it back.

But the former AFL No. 1 draft pick not only made it back, but she was the captain for Subiaco in Round 1 of the 2020 WAFLW season that had been delayed months thanks to COVID-19 just to add an extra layer to the whole scenario.
