Benjamin "Ben" Davies
(born 10 February 1986) is an Australian rules footballer
, Davies played in the TAC Cup
for the Western Jets
. His courageous ability as an in-and-under player got his name on the list, and was drafted as a rookie by Collingwood
in late 2004. His skills were ordinary, but Davies earned an unexpected promotion early on in the season for injured skipper Nathan Buckley
who would be put on the long-term injury list. He made his Australian Football League
(AFL) debut soon after in Round 7 against Fremantle
at Subiaco Oval
and showed he was a ball winner, having 14 touches in the first half.
His debut season was good enough for him to be elevated on the senior list from the rookie list for season 2006, where he played mostly in the Victorian Football League
(VFL), managing only five senior appearances. During 2007 he won the Best and Fairest at the Williamstown Football Club
but did not convince the Magpies he should be retained for the 2008 season. On 12 October 2007, Ben was traded to the Kangaroos
in exchange for their round six selection (selection 96 overall). He made his debut for North Melbourne in Round 11 of the 2008 season, against Geelong.
Davies was delisted at the end of the 2008 season
