Trio stick with Freo

GOOD news for Fremantle Dockers fans, with three favourites signing on to stay at the club.

Four-time All-Australian ruckman Aaron Sandilands has decided to play on for another year, signing until the end of the 2016 season.

Despite struggling to get a game with the form of Sandilands and Zac Clarke, fellow big man Jon Griffin has also committed to the club, signing a two-year contract extension.

Hard-nosed midfielder Matt De Boer penned a one-year extension.

Sandilands said he was excited to stay at the club.

�We�ve got a great bunch of guys at the club at the moment�we�ve got a group that is really determined,� he said.

�We�re all trying to achieve the same goal and it�s a privilege to be part of the group.

�It�s where I got my start, I�m keen for success and it was easy to (choose) to stay.�

The club also confirmed defender Michael Johnson is likely miss at least two months of football after tearing his right hamstring.

The injury occurred during the first quarter of Fremantle�s loss to Richmond on Friday night.

The night was supposed to be a celebration for Johnson, who was playing his 200th match for the club he supported as a kid.

However, things turned sour after he injured his hamstring while kicking in the first term.

Early reports had the All-Australian out for about a month, but the Dockers today revealed further tests had shown Johnson could miss the next eight to ten weeks.
