Western Bulldogs vice-captain Mitch Wallis has put pen to paper on a one-year contract extension, committing to the Kennel for season 2022.
The 28-year-old has played 153 games in the red, white and blue, after being drafted as a father-son selection in the 2010 national draft.
“Signing on for season 2022 is something I’m personally very excited for – I absolutely love being part of this football club,” Wallis said.
“I couldn’t be prouder of what we achieved this season, despite missing out on the ultimate prize. I’m looking forward to seeing how we can use that experience to our advantage in 2022.
“I’m going to embrace the challenge of improving elements of my game, as I feel I have a lot to contribute towards the on-field success of the club moving forward.
“I also want to continue to help motivate my teammates to become the best versions of themselves - it’s been amazing to watch my younger teammates develop over recent seasons. I feel I can help guide them to new heights in the future.”
General Manager of List Management and Football Projects, Sam Power, said it was pleasing to retain Wallis’ services.
“Mitch is not only a quality player, but also a quality person – his leadership and determination sets a great example for our playing group both on and off the field,” Power said.
“We value his ability to hit the scoreboard, while his work ethic is second to none.”
