Rising Fremantle hybrid Luke Jackson has labelled a recently re-committed teammate "one of the best" in the competition at his position.

Ruckman Sean Darcy, who penned a whopping six-year contract extension to tie his future to Cockburn until at least the end of the 2030 campaign, put to bed rumours of a Victorian return, having originated from the Geelong Falcons.

Jackson believes his rucking tandem with Darcy is the catalyst to a deep Fremantle finals run, with an ankle injury to Darcy limiting the pair's one-two punch in 2023.

The 22-year-old Jackson, who was traded to his hometown Dockers from Melbourne in 2022, is slated to come out of his Fremantle contract in 2029, having signed a bumper deal upon his Western Australian return.

"The most important thing is probably playing more games together," Jackson began, via 9News Perth.

"We played a few (games together) this season past. But, if we can get out on the park together a lot more, I reckon that will go a long way.

"Sean's obviously like, one of the best rucks in the comp. I'm happy just helping him out when he's having a rest.

"It frees my game up a little bit (playing forward when Darcy's rucking). I feel like I'm more involved out there when I'm switching [positions]."

Before cementing his career shift, Jackson claimed a premiership medallion with the Demons in 2021 when Melbourne downed the Western Bulldogs in a Grand Final played in his home state at Optus Stadium.

"It was unreal to win a flag at Melbourne and get a feel for what it is. I want to bring some of that over to Freo," Jackson said.

Fremantle regressed this year, winning just ten games after notching a 15-win 2022 campaign that saw the Dockers storm into September and earn a semi-final berth.

Jackson highlighted his maiden season in purple by lodging 15.0 disposals and 3.4 marks per game; representing career-best means.
