Stewart Crameri is reportedly hopeful of making a shock return from his drugs ban in time for the Western Bulldogs’ finals campaign.

The Herald Sun reports that Crameri is training in private, with the hope of returning should a Swiss Court uphold the Essendon 34’s appeal.

Western Bulldogs’ coach Luke Beveridge confirmed on Tuesday that the forward is readying himself for a potential return, with Channel Seven reporting that a decision from Switzeland “is imminent”, meaning Crameri could be free to play in September.

“Stewie’s been doing quite a bit of work and training just in case that happens,” Beveridge said.

“That’d be a nice little injection of personality into the club.”

Meanwhile, the Herald Sun also reports that Crameri’s friendship with suspended Essendon player Michael Hurley “will play a key role in the Dogs’ mission to acquire the contracted defender”.
