Geelong Cats star Steven Motlop (pictured) will look for a much improved showing in 2017.

After an outstanding 2015 season, Motlop struggled for consistency this year with a lack of fitness at the start of the year  and the Larrakia man was offered up for trade by the Cats at the end of the season.

With no interest in the 25 year old from other clubs, Motlop has returned to Geelong in peak fitness and fellow Cats midfielder Paddy Dangerfield says he’s looking forward to a fit and firing Motlop being back to his best when the season starts.
