Geelong have re-signed a quartet of players including ruckmen Rhys Stanley and Ryan Abbott.
Stanley and Abbott have signed new two-year deals to stay with the Cats while rookies Jamaine Jones and Sam Simpson have agreed to new one-year and two-year deals respectively.
“Rhys produced a strong block of games this year where he demonstrated the type of football he can play. He is focused on taking his game to another level through consistency and professionalism,” Geelong football manager Simon Lloyd said.
“Ryan had a consistent year, working hard at his craft and was rewarded with an AFL debut late in the season. Ryan shows a lot of drive, we look forward to seeing him develop over the next two years.
“Jamaine’s story in football and life is one of resilience and persistence. After working really hard on his game, he was rewarded with an AFL debut this season and we are excited to see Jamaine continue to improve.
“Sam’s work rate, football intelligence and ability to play multiple roles holds him in good stead, and we look forward to him developing his game.”
