"I’ve really enjoyed my first season in the AFL system and being given the opportunity to play for the Club I grew up barracking for," Thilthorpe said.

"It's been great to work closely with all of my coaches but also the experience of someone like Taylor Walker in the forward line helping my development.

"I'm excited about the future of the Club and am happy to know I'll be here for the next four years which will allow me to continue to focus on my footy."
