"It was a massive weight on my shoulders. It was a lot of pressure, which I didn't really enjoy too much. It affected me quite hard mentally and affected my footy as well," Weideman said about the stress of being in the final year of his contract.
"I think the early stages of the year the pressure was building, and it got a bit overwhelming at times. It's a massive relief to have signed now and I'm very excited for what's to come."
