Tuohy joined Geelong in 2017 and has gone onto play 85 times for the Cats.

He became just the second Irish player to reach the 200-game milestone at AFL level and has played a total of 205 games with Carlton and Geelong.

Tuohy enjoyed a flexible role in 2020, playing in all three areas of the ground. He played all four finals and has been a strong leader at Geelong.

The pair helped the Cats to the 2020 AFL grand final.

“Both Rhys and Zach have become key parts of our team over the years and we are pleased they will be continuing with us,” Geelong’s General Manager of Football Simon Lloyd said.

“We believe they will help us to continue to challenge for finals and a premiership. Both are great around the club and influential in the community. They are proud to be Geelong players.”

Tuohy will remain a Cat until the end of 2022, while Stanley has signed a one year extension.
