St Kilda has delisted Ahmed Saad from the primary list ahead of the second list lodgement today.
The club will go to the draft with picks 3, 18 and 19 and will use a later pick to officially promote Tom Curren to the senior list.
St Kilda will continue to work with Ahmed throughout his current hearing with the AFL’s tribunal.
The club can still rookie Ahmed but a decision cannot be made on that until the tribunal hands down its findings.
St Kilda list manager Ameet Bains acknowledged the unique circumstances surrounding the 24-year-old.
“Ahmed and the club are awaiting on a conclusion to his hearing before the tribunal and we will work closely with him during and after that process,” Bains said.
