ASH medallist John Meesen may have played and coached his last game with Modewarre.

The 33-year-old ruckman, who shared the BFL senior best-and-fairest with Torquay counterpart Dom Gleeson on Wednesday night, is considering his future with the Warriors after two years as co-coach.

“I’m not too sure at the moment; I’ll weigh all that up at the end of the year,” he said. “I live and work in Melbourne. Work’s pretty full-on at the moment, which is good.

“I’d love to stay on at Modewarre, but the travel is a factor.

“Every year is a year-by-year at my age, and with work and family commitments.

“I’ll sit down with (club chairman) Paul Grossman and (football president) Mick Fitzgerald and work out what’s best for the club going forward.

“If I’m a part of that going forward, then great.”
