Bulldogs ruckman Tom Campbell signs two-year contract extension

Western Bulldogs ruckman Tom Campbell has signed a two-year contract extension, keeping him at Whitten Oval until the end of 2018.

The 24-year-old was restricted to nine senior games in 2016, with a stress fracture in his heel sidelining him for most of the second half of the season.

Campbell, who averaged 20 hitouts and 11 disposals this season, said he is delighted to re-sign with the club.

“I’m really excited to re-sign, the group is doing some really exciting things at the moment.

“There is great energy around the Club and to be part of it for the next two years is great.”

He was recruited with pick No. 27 in the 2012 rookie draft.
