Heppell happy to wait for Bombers' top job

  • Heppell happy to wait for Bombers' top job

Essendon captain-in-waiting Dyson Heppell says he's happy to continue his apprenticeship under incumbent skipper Jobe Watson.

Heppell, 23, led the Bombers in Watson's absence this year after the 30-year-old underwent season-ending shoulder surgery following their round-14 loss to St Kilda.

Watson admitted his passion for the game had suffered as the club's supplements scandal dragged on but he was recently voted in for another year in the top job after returning reinvigorated from an extended break, with Heppell named his vice-captain.
