Emerging ruckman Andrew Phillips has re-signed with the Greater Western Sydney Giants in a deal that takes him to at least the end of the 2017 season.
The 23-year-old has played 10 games since making his debut in 2012 after being hampered by injury over the past two seasons.
Phillips told the club’s website he was looking forward to making more of an impact in the senior side.
“The five years I’ve spent at the Giants have been great. I’ve slotted in really well here and I can see where the Giants are heading and I want to be part of it,” he said.
“It’s a really tight knit group here at the Giants. There’s a lot of players re-signing which shows that there are a lot of young players happy here and we’re all looking forward to the future.
“It’s been a frustrating couple of years on the sidelines for me with injuries but the body is coming right now and I’m hoping that in the next couple of years here I can really cement my spot.”
Phillips was picked up by the Giants via Tasmania in the 2010 rookie draft.
