New Dockers deal a no-brainer for Duffield

Defender Paul Duffield says it was an easy decision to re-sign with Fremantle until the end of 2015.

The 29-year-old, who agreed to a one-year contract extension late last week, became the latest experienced Docker to recommit to the club.

Injuries aside, the deal should guarantee Duffield achieves life membership with the club and comes with Fremantle poised for another assault on achieving its first premiership.

Duffield's commitment leaves David Mundy, Nat Fyfe and Hayden Ballantyne as the major list management priorities, with all three due to come out of contract at the end of this season.

"I love the club," Duffield said.

"I've very much enjoyed my time here. I'm very passionate.

"It's a great time to be at the football club. I'm really looking forward to the future. I'm not one of the young guys any more, but I certainly just enjoy my time here.

"Yes, it was an easy decision (to re-sign)."

Fremantle open their 2014 campaign in nine days' time against Collingwood at Etihad Stadium.

Duffield said the players had been sharp at training ahead of their final pre-season hit-out tomorrow against West Coast at Patersons Stadium.

He said the Eagles had been impressive during the countdown to round one.

"Obviously with a new coach and a new system and a really good pre-season, they're playing great football," he said.

"Usually that'll be a good sign to them having a good season."
