Thunder sign former Bomber

Peel Thunder have signed former Essendon wingman Jackson Merrett to it's list for season 2019.

Merrett spent seven years with the Bombers and played 56-games after being selected in the 2011 national draft.

In that time he forged a relationship with Ben Howlett who has also returned from the eastern states to Peel Thunder in past two seasons. 

Jackson is the older brother of Zach who is currently on Essendon's list. 

Peel Thunder believe Mereitt's off-season inclusion as been a real feather in their cap. 

He and his family are set to move to Mandurah in the New Year.
