The Western Bulldogs confirm duo Hayden Crozier and Roarke Smith will not be offered contracts for 2024.

Crozier arrived at the Kennel during the 2017 Trade Period, playing 73 games across six seasons for the red, white and blue.

In total, the 29-year-old has played 142 games at Fremantle and the Western Bulldogs.

The defender played four games in 2023, suffering a hamstring injury mid-season that sidelined Crozier for two months.

Smith joined the Club through the 2015 Rookie Draft at Pick 5, playing 47 games during nine seasons.

A versatile team player, Smith played a variety of roles throughout his time in the red, white and blue, finding a home on the wing for the past few seasons.

Due to a plantar fascia issue, Smith was unable to play at AFL level this season.

Bulldogs’ General Manager of List and Recruiting Sam Power thanked both players for their service to the red, white and blue.

“Both Hayden and Roarke have made a significant contribution to our playing group, both on and off the field,” Power said.

“The pair always had a team-first attitude and would play any role required for the team and we thank them for their dedication to the Western Bulldogs.

“We wish Hayden and Roarke, as well as their families, all the best for the future. They’re always welcome back at VU Whitten Oval.”
