North Melbourne livewire Tarryn Thomas has recommitted to the Kangaroos, signing a two-year contract extension which will see him at Arden Street until at least the end of 2024.

The talented midfielder-forward produced his best season in 2021, playing 21 matches and averaging 17 disposals per game.


The sublimely skilled Thomas kicked 24 goals last season. His standout performance came in the Kangaroos’ round-19 win over Carlton when he kicked four goals from 23 possessions.

He capped off a promising year by enjoying his first top-10 finish in the Syd Barker Medal, finishing in eighth place.

"Tarryn is a very important player for our club and we are delighted to have him commit for a further two years," general manager of football talent Brady Rawlings said.

"He's highly skilled but he also plays with a hard edge. He took his game to the next level in 2021 and we look forward to seeing that progression into this year and beyond.

"To have him commit until at least the end of 2024 is a fantastic result for all parties."


Thomas, 21, has played 47 games and kicked 46 goals for the Kangaroos since his AFL debut in 2019. He was originally taken at no.8 in the 2018 NAB AFL Draft as a priority selection from the Roos' Next Generation Academy in Tasmania.

Along with Hugh Greenwood, Pat Walker, Aaron Hall and Matt McGuinness, he is one of five Tasmanians on the Kangaroos' list.
