Fremantle coach Ross Lyon has hinted All-Australian defender Luke McPharlin will play on in 2015.
The 32-year-old played just 13 games this season after struggling with soft-tissue injuries.
McPharlin is yet to sign a new contract for next year, fuelling ongoing speculation that he will retire.
However Lyon told RSN Racing and Sport today that McPharlin had indicated to him that he may go on in 2015.
“I think he’s more likely,” Lyon said.
“At the end of the day, I’ve got a really strong relationship with Luke.
“I think he’s more likely than unlikely.”
Lyon added that if McPharlin was to play on, it was likely the Dockers would manage his travel commitments to ensure he was in good shape for the finals series.
