Two year deals for both of them
Worrell clearly not as homesick as those rumours led us to believe and clearly isn’t cracking the sads at not getting game within his first season

Bloody great news.. mcpherson is a great player who has the poise and confidence of a player who has played more than 100 games.

Worrell looks to have all the skills and talent and really shouldve been given a debut by now.

Really happy Worrell signed on. He looks to have bought in. Would have been tough for all the draftees last year.

Moose already brings 150 games of experience. Great lad.

Excellent news (and nice timing too ;) )

The Moose is my favourite of the newbies, while Worrell is the type of player our side is desperately lacking. Hope he gets AFL games this year.

This is great news from the club. Getting these signatures done early is also a great sign that things inside the club are changing. Will be interesting to see if McAsey signs on. Feel Butts, OBrien, Doedee and Mcadam will stay as well.

I think its no secret he was unhappy after his first year. But that's obviously turned around fully, which is excellent to hear. Hopefully McAstey is following as well.
Worrell has some talent, so would have been disappointing if he left.

Tex will get another year... if Mookay can keep getting a year extention year after year then Tex will atleast get one..

I sort of hope he does even if he spends it in a player/coach/mentoring role for the SANFL team..

Lynch can go help coach the womens team..

Dont know that I like the idea of both tex and Lynch playing on next year..

McAsey is probably thinking that if he re-signs right now for a further two years that the club will immediately feel confident that he is locked in and will send him back to the SANFL for this year to find form and build confidence playing against fully grown men.. which is exactly what he needs..

The club is probably thinking that if they do send him back to play in the SANFL for the year that McAsey, and his parents, may take it as an insult and that the club doesnt rate him.. and it may result in him asking for a trade to a vic club willing to give him more opportunity to play AFL..

Its a bit of a sticky situation for both parties to be in at the moment.
