Mathieson, 22, has played every game for the Lions this season through the midfield, but will miss the next week or two after suffering a hamstring concern. 

"Rhys shows terrific drive to constantly get better and challenge himself at AFL level," Lions football manager David Noble said.

"He embraces our values and brings a level of passion to our team which is infectious and engaging.

"As he continues to grow, we look forward to his next level of development at our club." 

 

Back-up ruckman Smith hasn't played at senior level since 2017.
