The Western Bulldogs have confirmed two changes to their AFL playing list, with Ben Cavarra and Will Hayes advised they will not be offered contracts for season 2022.

Cavarra made one appearance at AFL level this season, activated as the medical substitute in round five against the Gold Coast Suns.

The 25-year-old arrived at VU Whitten Oval with pick 45 in the 2018 NAB AFL Draft.

Hayes, 26, made his AFL debut in round five of the 2019 season against Carlton, after being drafted via the Bulldogs’ VFL pathway with pick 78 in 2018.

He went onto play a further eight games in 2019, adding two more in 2020, to bring his career tally to 11 matches.

General Manager of List Management and Football Projects, Sam Power, thanked the duo for their contributions both on and off the field.

“On behalf of the Club, I’d like to express our gratitude and appreciation for what Ben and Will brought to our playing group over the last three years,” Power said.

“We wish them all the best for the future.”
