Sharks nab Bomber

Melville Times - - Inside & Out Home | -

EAST Fre­man­tle’s busy off-sea­son has con­tin­ued with the sign­ing of for­mer Essendon mid­fielder Nick Kom­mer on a two-year deal.

The 27-year-old played 22 games for the Bombers af­ter be­ing picked up from East Perth in the 2012 draft.

In­juries ham­pered a promis­ing start to his ca­reer and he was delisted at the end of the 2016 sea­son.

He spent 2017 in the Bal­larat Foot­ball League.

“It’s great to be back in the west and play­ing in the WAFL,” Kom­mer said.

“I’m look­ing for­ward to meet­ing and play­ing along­side a new bunch of lads with an up and com­ing young list.”

Kom­mer is East Fre­man­tle’s third off-sea­son re­cruit with AFL ex­pe­ri­ence.

Dock­ers ruck­man Jon Grif­fin was an­nounced as a new mem­ber of the side last week, while Bull Creek-Leem­ing prod­uct Jar­rad Jansen joined a month ear­lier fol­low­ing stints with Gee­long and Bris­bane.

Head coach Rob Wi­ley said Kom­mer’s ap­proach would be wel­come in a side that won just three matches in 2017.
