The Sharks’ 2018 recruiting campaign secured another significant signing with former Bomber Nick Kommer inking a two-year deal with Sharks today.
The explosive and hard-nosed mid-forward played 22 games for Essendon, where he made a name for himself as one of the toughest players in the competition.
Kommer said he’s excited to play under Rob Wiley and his team.
“It’s great to be back in the West and playing in the WAFL,” Kommer said.
“I’m looking forward to meeting and playing alongside a new bunch of lads with an up and coming young list.”
His trademark aggression and pressure will be a major inclusion for the Sharks. Coach Rob Wiley said Kommer’s AFL experience and work ethic will also compliment Griffin and Jansen in developing our younger players.
“His pace, aggression and competitiveness will go a long way as we move forward,” Wiley said.
Selected from East Perth in the 2012 Draft with pick number 73, Kommer made his debut in Round 1 the following year. Despite a fantastic break out season, injuries hampered many opportunities for the 27-year old and as a result he was delisted after playing just the 3 games in season 2016.
Back fighting fit, Kommer spent the past year playing in the Ballarat Football League for Melton South, finishing high up in their best and fairest award. After five years in the east, the Sharks are rapped to secure Kommer’s signature.
The club looks forward to Nick Kommer donning the Blue and White when he arrives back in Perth as the Sharks continue to develop their list.
