Jon Griffin happy to stay an AFL Docker

Dockers ruckman Jonathon Griffin signed a two-year deal with the AFL club, keeping him on till 2014.

With the AFL contract sagas of Collingwood forward Travis Cloke and Port Adelaide midfielder Travis Boak continuing to drag on, Fremantle ruckman Jonathon Griffin couldn't put pen to paper fast enough last week.

Griffin signed a new two-year deal with the Dockers that will see him stay at the club until at least the end of 2014.

The re-signing came as a surprise to some, who thought Griffin might be better off trying his luck over east after struggling for game time as a back-up to Aaron Sandilands.

St Kilda coach Scott Watters had already expressed a desire to trade in a ruckman at the end of the year, while Greater Western Sydney will also be in the hunt for a tap specialist.

But Griffin grew up as a mad Fremantle supporter, and said his family had no intentions of leaving Perth.

"It's been a dream come true to be able to come back and play for Fremantle," said Griffin, who played four seasons with the Crows before crossing to the Dockers at the end of 2010.

"As a kid I barracked for Fremantle, so when I was given the opportunity for a contract extension, I grabbed it with both hands.

"There was a lot of speculation going on at the end of last year (as to whether I'd move), and a little bit this year as well.

"So I just wanted to get it out of the way and just concentrate on playing some good footy for Fremantle.

"I love the footy club and I'm so glad to be here."

Collingwood have put all contract negotiations with out-of-form Cloke on hold until the end of the season, while Boak is expected to re-sign with the Power despite strong interest from Geelong and North Melbourne.

Fremantle take on the Power at AAMI Stadium on Sunday, and Griffin will again lead the ruck division while Sandilands continues to recover from a 'turf toe' injury.

The Dockers, who sit just percentage adrift of eighth spot, will be given a major boost this week when star midfielder Nat Fyfe returns from a shoulder injury.
