Morris is joined by Jack Redpath and Lukas Webb, who have signed two year extensions, keeping both players at VU Whitten Oval until at least the end of the 2019 season.

Western Bulldogs list manager Jason McCartney said he was pleased that the veteran defender had agreed to suit up again next season.

“On the field, Dale’s versatility down back is invaluable and we know he gives his all every time he pulls on the jumper,” McCartney said.

“He’s been a stalwart at our footy club for many, many years, and with his experience, toughness and work ethic, he’s the ideal player to have around our young group as they continue to grow and mature.”

The signatures of Morris, Redpath and Webb take the total to 13 players who have recommitted to the Club this year.
