Tuesday, 6 July 2021
Cody Weightman has developed a cult following among Western Bulldogs fans but still doesn't feel as though he's cemented his spot in the team's line-up.

Since breaking into the team with a three-goal haul against Port Adelaide in round nine, Weightman has played seven consecutive games, culminating in a career-best four goals against North Melbourne last Sunday.

"I like to have the mindset that I'm not (cemented in the team) because I think that's when I play my best football, when I'm not complacent and I'm doing the desperate stuff," he said.

"I like to hope that I've done a few good things now that have given me a little bit of credit that might keep me in the team, but at the same time I'm approaching it as if I'm playing for my life each week."

Monday, 24 May 2021
Cody Weightman earns the 2021 round 10 NAB AFL Rising Star nomination after gathering 14 disposals kicking 2 goals in the Bulldogs' 111-point win over the Saints.

"The work that Cody's done on his game over the last six months has really paid dividends the last six or seven weeks," Bulldogs' development manager Jamie Maddocks said.

"He's been super consistent and it's great to see him getting his opportunity and taking it with both hands."

Friday, 17 July 2020
Cody Weightman makes his AFL debut for the Western Bulldogs with 9 disposals (5 kicks and 4 handballs), 3 marks and 2 goals in a 42-point win over Essendon.

Draft prospect Cody Weightman says Jack Higgins is a mentor and an inspiration for him.

The pair became close friends through a mutual acquaintance in the sports industry, and Weightman still talks weekly to the young Richmond midfielder.

"His training standards are elite. It's something I try to copy and put into my game," he said.

"He's had people critique him in a lot of ways and he hasn't taken a bar of any of it. He's just forged his own path. We all have people who might doubt us but the way he's gone about it and used it as motivation is something I do as well now."
