ZACH Tuohy and Rhys Stanley will both get the chance to play 100 games for Geelong after the club confirmed both have signed contract extensions.

Tuohy, who turns 31 next month, has signed a new two-year deal.

The Irishman has made 85 appearances in four seasons at the Cats after 120 matches for Carlton.

Stanley, who turns 30 on December 1, has accepted a one-year deal to add to his 86 games in the Hoops and career tally of 144 after 58 matches at St Kilda.

“Both Rhys and Zach have become key parts of our team over the years and we are pleased they will be continuing with us,” Geelong football boss Simon Lloyd said.

 “We believe they will help us to continue to challenge for finals and a premiership. Both are great around the club and influential in the community.

“They are proud to be Geelong players.”

The announcement of Tuohy and Stanley re-signing follows that of Brandan Parfitt on Monday.
