Former Port Pirie man Mark Jamar re-signed with Melbourne for another three years earlier this month.
The 2010 All Australian ruckman Mark Jamar, 28, is likely to now see out his career at Melbourne, with the contract taking him through until 2015 – when he will be 32.
Jamar started played football for Lions in Port Pirie, starting his transition to higher grade football playing in the under 17 competition at North Adelaide, before being drafted as a rookie for Melbourne in 2002.
He has now played 121 AFL games for Melbourne – including all 11 of Melbourne’s games played this year.
This is big improvement of 2011 when he was plagued by a knee injury, causing him to miss the first 14 games of the season and then affecting his leap and timing in ruck.
Jamar was named best player for Melbourne against St Kilda in round five, however, it hasn’t been a good season to date for the team, with Melbourne suffering some big losses and its only win coming in round 10 when it defeated Essendon by six points.
