Fremantle have secured the future of Nathan O’Driscoll with the starlet penning a deal until the end of the 2024 NRL campaign.
The Dockers are priced at 91/100 to beat Brisbane on Sunday and have got the season off to a great start with eight wins from 11 games to move to third spot on the ladder.
O’Driscoll has certainly played his role when catching the eye in rounds two to eight before he picked up a foot injury that currently keeps him on the sidelines.
The youngster, who was taken as pick No.27 in the 2020 NAB AFL draft, is delighted to have pledged his immediate future as the Dockers look set to shine under the leadership of coach Justin Longmuir.
"I'm signing on with Freo for another two years. I'm stoked and really happy with it," O'Driscoll said. "It's been challenging at times, not playing all of last year and then only having this year of my contract left, so I was a bit nervous going into pre-season.
"I knew if I stuck to it, had a good pre-season and got the work under my belt, I was going to be fine. I was lucky enough to break through to the team and play decent footy, so I'm stoked to sign on."
Fremantle's head of player personnel David Walls has also saluted the move and says the player is a star of the future.
"As soon as he played AFL he just looked comfortable at the level. It's impressive how he was able to adapt so quickly and pick up that wing role. He's been a big positive," Walls said.
