New Saint Austin seeks greener pastures

Draft countdown Recruiting and List Manager Tony Elshaug discusses our 2017 NAB AFL Draft position as the countdown begins.

New St Kilda key defender Logan Austin is determined to play more senior football at his new club after being stuck in the queue at Port Adelaide, says Saints List and Recruiting Manager Tony Elshaug.

After being recruited with pick No. 69 in the 2014 Draft, the 22-year-old played 13 games across three seasons at Port Adelaide, including 11 in the second half of 2016, but only managed two appearances this season despite strong form in the SANFL.

The Saints received the Canberra product and a future fourth-round pick on Thursday in exchange for a future third-round pick on the final day of this year’s exchange period, on a day where they also exchanged picks with the Power in another deal.

After acquiring key defensive pair Jake Carlisle and Nathan Brown in...

St Kilda determined to capitalise on draft position

Draft countdown Recruiting and List Manager Tony Elshaug discusses our 2017 NAB AFL Draft position as the countdown begins.

AFL 2017 Media - NAB Trade Period 191017

St Kilda List Manager Tony Elshaug addresses the media this week.

It’s been nearly two decades since St Kilda last had two picks inside the first ten and the Saints are determined to make the most of their strong position in this year’s draft.

The last time St Kilda held such a strong position was in 2001 when the club drafted Luke Ball at pick No. 2 and Xavier Clarke at No. 5.

St Kilda List and Recruiting Manager Tony Elshaug said the club is pleased to exit the trade period with pick No. 7 and No. 8 still in their grasp, as well as acquiring pick No. 34 from Port Adelaide to complement a fourth pick inside the top 50 at No. 45.

“It’s been 16 years since we’ve had two top ten picks and to have four picks in the top 45 is a good result as well,” Elshaug told...

Trade update

AFL 2017 Media - NAB Trade Period

Ameet Bains says the club is comfortable in taking picks seven and eight to the National Draft in November.

St Kilda will look to bolster its playing depth through other means, with GWS ruling out the possibility of an Adam Tomlinson trade.

Speaking to Kane Cornes and Matthew Lloyd on Trade Radio this morning, Chief Operating Officer Ameet Bains addressed the club's interest in Tomlinson

"We have had discussions as late as yesterday, but I don't think anything will happen," Bains said.

"The reality of that is that Adam has wanted to come home. There appeared to be an opening there for a period where the Giants were, I suppose, open to thinking about that.

"As the season progressed, the finals played out the way they have and some of the players they've already lost, they made it clear that they don't want to be losing any more players.”

Seb Ross inks long-term extension

Seb Ross: Trevor Barker Award Seb Ross has been named St Kilda Football Club's 2017 Trevor Barker award winner.

St Kilda has secured the services of gun midfielder Sebastian Ross until at least the end of 2021.

After winning his first Trevor Barker Award earlier this month, Ross reaffirmed his commitment to the club by signing a three-year contract extension.

The announcement follows the re-signing of senior coach Alan Richardson, important defender Dylan Roberton and utility Blake Acres since the end of the AFL season.

Ross said his decision was simple; fuelled by his love of the club and his excitement for what the future holds.

“The Saints are where I always wanted to be, so the decision was pretty easy,” he said. 

“The Saints took a chance on me as a young 18-year-old. There were a few guys picked from our draft so I’ve grown up with those guys for the past six years.”

St Kilda dad named top rascal

Peter Steven has won AFL 360's 'Rascal of the Year'

When you’re not a player, coach, or even an AFL official, then the chances of securing a coveted AFL award are pretty slim.

But Jack Steven’s Dad Peter has defied the odds to claim AFL 360’s infamous Rascal of the Year award.

Created by Bulldogs champion Bob Murphy, who has since handed the responsibility to Jack Riewoldt, the Rascal of the Year awards cheeky or ‘rascalish’ behaviour in the footy world.

Caught on camera in the St Kilda rooms talking to welfare manager Tony Brown, Peter can be seen undoing his top shirt button less than 10 seconds after wife Jenny leans over to do it up.

But the moment captured by Fox Footy’s cameras isn’t a once off, Peter explained to Saints.com.au.

“It gets pretty hot in the rooms for some reason after a match, so I’m always trying to cool down,” Peter said with a laugh.

“Jenny thinks I’m...

AFL 2016 Media - NAB AFL Draft

St Kilda Chief Operating Officer Ameet Bains said that interest in picks seven and eight has been extremely high.

The Saints’ prized top 10 draft picks continue attract interest from opposition clubs.

St Kilda Chief Operating Officer Ameet Bains told saints.com.au in a special edition podcast that interest in picks seven and eight has been extremely high.

“In terms of pick swaps, we have had conversations. Our real want is to move up the order, so be somewhere better than seven, and to do a deal on that basis have been the discussions we’ve been exploring,” he said.

“There hasn’t been anything attractive enough for us to want to do that and again, I re-enforce that if we were to do something it’s more likely to move up the order.”

“It would have to be something compelling that would make us shift.

Bains said the talent available in November’s draft was incredibly appealing.
