Fremantle Dockers cult hero Kepler Bradley talks all things career on the Hard Ball Gets podcast | Ralph-Lauren

Must Read

Fremantle Dockers cult hero Kepler Bradley joins this week’s Hard Ball Gets podcast to chat candidly about his career, his favourite fan interactions, and a touching Ross Lyon story that showed the coach’s loyalty and care in a vulnerable moment.


But there’s one humorous Lyon story that sticks out in the 117-gamer’s mind.

Bradley recalled a Dockers pre-season game in Mandurah, where he mustered just four handpasses and didn’t earn a kick.

Not expecting to earn a call-up to Fremantle’s round one side a fortnight later, Bradley looked to line up in a WAFL fixture a week before the AFL season started to get some touch.

But after learning of Bradley’s intention, Lyon pulled the big man aside at training and asked: “Are you an AFL player or a WAFL player?”

The rest of the exchange is worth a listen and a laugh from the 32:30 mark of the above podcast.


  • Bradley’s WAFL role with Claremont these days (1:00)
  • Bradley’s “energy for the post-season stuff” (4:15)
  • Heading to Essendon as a youngster and the aura around Hird, Lloyd & Sheedy (5:00)
  • Playing in the first Dreamtime at the G match – and how would that fixture go if it comes to WA this year? (14:30)
  • His switch to Fremantle at the end of 2007 (21:00)
