“I look forward to being a senior player and helping our team improve and challenge the top teams. Now my immediate future is settled I look forward to playing my best footy.”
Warriors coach Nathan Brown said: “I have a lot of faith in Kodi and I’m glad his future is settled for next season.
“Now we can concentrate on us winning games and being consistent.
“Kodi’s a popular and important member of our squad and I’m sure it will give the group a big lift knowing he has been secured for another season.”
