Brett Bewley was drafted by the Fremantle Dockers with pick 59 in the NAB AFL Draft. Bewley is a former captain of the Western Jets who has spent the last five seasons playing for Williamstown in the VFL.
Bewley has shown consistent improvement every year to become one of the premier running midfielders in the VFL which resulted in being named in the VFL Team of the Year the past two seasons. Bewley is a beautiful penetrating kick of the football and led the VFL for effective long kicks in 2018, while also rating elite for uncontested possessions and inside 50s.
He is strongly built but an outstanding endurance runner, equalling the yo-yo test record at the 2018 Victorian state combine. Bewley also displayed his impressive speed by recording a sub three-second time in the 20m sprint.
