I’m excited to be back: Weller

Lachie Weller gives a pre-season update.

Fremantle midfielder Lachie Weller says he is pushing to play more senior games in 2016 after adding a few kilos in the off-season.

“I had to put a bit of weight on in the off-season, which I did, which is really good,” he said.

“I need to improve my endurance now.

“Coming back into pre-season you sort of already know what to expect and its really helped settling in the last few weeks.”

Weller lined up alongside his Fremantle teammates three times this year at the young age of 19.

His strong performances earned him a two-year contract extension with the club.

“I’m really happy with the two-year extension,” he said.

“I’m really looking forward to improving my footy and playing more games with Freo.”

Weller says he is excited to be back with the playing group despite spending the off-season relaxing in a multitude of countries, alongside his brother and their two partners.

“I went overseas to Singapore, Cambodia and Vietnam,” he said.

“It was really good, I enjoyed it.

“It was a really good break and I’m really excited to be back into it.”

Weller is one of many up-and-coming players on Fremantle’s list, including Connor Blakely who debuted in round 23 last season against Port Adelaide.

“Connor and I are really starting to play a fair bit of footy together and we’re getting along really well,” Weller said.

“It’s good to share these times together.”
