Contracted GWS defender Lachie Ash has recommitted to the Giants on a two-year deal.

The fresh contract will see the rebounding backman remain in the orange and charcoal until the end of the 2027 season.

"Lachie was already contracted until the end of next year so to have him re-commit for a further two years is just fantastic for him and the club," GWS football boss Jason McCartney said in a club statement.

"Lachie is in our Emerging Leaders group and has really developed into a key player in our side and one of the competition's best young rebounding defenders.

"Lachie has shown to be an extremely damaging player for us and one that we see as a big piece of our future as we strive for the ultimate success.”

Ash, a product from Katandra, joined the Giants as the fourth overall pick in the 2019 National Draft and would make his AFL debut the following year against the Western Bulldogs.

The dashing defender has played at least 30 games for GWS in his three seasons between his maiden campaign and 2024, with the 23-year-old appearing in 10 games so far this year.

Ash is averaging 19.7 disposals, 6.2 marks and 4.1 rebounds 50s per game for the Giants this year, with a calf issue interrupting his past month.

The retention of Ash adds to a positive period of re-signings in Sydney's west, with Sam Taylor (2032), Jesse Hogan (2026), Nick Madden (2026) and Nathan Wardius (2025) all recommitting to the club already this year.
