“Lachie is a quality person and highly respected player who will significantly strengthen our midfield.

“We are excited that Lachie and his partner Jules would choose our Club and believe this is a reflection of our continual improvement and growth in the competition.

“We expect Lachie to be a positive influence on our culture as we collectively move forward and strive for success.
