Former Docker Balic passes away

Former Fremantle Docker Harley Balic has passed away at the age of just 25.


Balic played four games for the Dockers in 2017 after being drafted with pick 38 in the 2015 national draft.


He played in Peel Thunder’s 2016 premiership victory over Subiaco, collecting 20 disposals in the 23-point win.


After landing at the Demons Balic retired during the 2018 season and at the time said it wasn't an easy decision to make.


“It’s something I’m not going to regret and I’m very appreciative to Melbourne for letting me come to the club for a second chance.


“I’ve always loved football, but my heart’s not in it and everything ends up being a grind and I think it’s just the right thing to do."
