Player Bio

Season by season

A precociously talented midfielder, Billings was St Kilda’s first pick and No.3 overall in the 2013 AFL National Draft.

The Oakleigh Chargers ball-winner played just three games in the NAB AFL Under-18 Championships due to a knee injury, but will still named All-Australian for a second successive year.

Billings is a clever, prolific and evasive midfielder who is more likely to spend the early part of his AFL career roaming the forward flanks and wings.

Billings had surgery on his knee at the end of 2013 and then suffered a minor quad injury in Boulder, Colorado but if fully fit heading into the 2014 campaign.

Season by season

A precociously talented and skilful forward/midfielder, Billings was selected with pick three in the 2013 National Draft.

In many ways, the left footer personifies the next generation of St Kilda stars – gifted with natural talents but equally hard working and determined.

While he debuted in round one as the sub, it wasn’t until after Billings booted five goals (including four in one quarter) in a VFL game that he earned another shot at the big time.

And he didn’t look back, booting his first career goal in a win over Essendon and earning a Rising Star nomination after collecting 25 disposals at 100 per cent efficiency against West Coast in late June.

All this was achieved after a pre-season that was interrupted by injury.

2014 coaches’ perspective – Aaron Hamill (forward coach)
Jack is going well. He suffered a hamstring injury late in the season but we were impressed with his output on the whole this year.  Probably his best game was against West Coast when he kicked three goals in the first quarter and won the Rising Star nomination. Clearly we know how talented Jack is. His decision making and ball use is elite. We’re really looking forward to watching him improve with his first full pre-season.
