Geelong captain Joel Selwood will be a Cat for life after signing a contract extension until the end of the 2019 season.
The 27-year old who was selected by the Cats in the 2006 national draft, is the latest in a long line of players to commit to the club for the long term.

“Joel is an outstanding leader of our club, the ultimate professional, and we are really pleased to have extended his services over the next four seasons,” Geelong’s General Manager of Football Steve Hocking said.
“His list of accolades speak for themselves and his work ethic and determination is admired by his teammates and coaches. Both Joel and the club are pleased to get this arrangement agreed so quickly and it seems almost certain now that Joel will spend his entire career with the Cats.
“Joel has enjoyed a great deal of success already in his career, but it’s clear that he is hungry to achieve even more in the coming years.”
