Season by season

Season by season

A hard-nose and courageous defender, Geary was drafted at No.58 in the rookie draft from the Bendigo Pioneers, before being elevated to the senior list late in 2007.

Following a sixth place finish in the Saints best and fairest in 2012, Geary went even in better last year, finishing in fourth.

He missed just one game and demonstrated his versatility beyond a lockdown defender as a run-with player, nullifying Carlton’s Marc Murphy and Adelaide’s Patrick Dangerfield.

93 games into a flourishing career, Geary is an integral cog in St Kilda’s defence and a member of the leadership group.

A courageous defender and occasional midfielder, Geary was originally drafted at pick 58 in the rookie draft from TAC Cup side Bendigo Pioneers, but was elevated in late 2007 to the Saints senior list.

2012 was a breakout year for Geary, playing in 20 games and firmly establishing himself in Scott Watters best 22. In particular, his fierce attack on the football won him praise with a top ten finish in the Saints best and fairest the result of a fantastic season.

Geary is seen as a future leader, and will look to build on last season’s efforts with another consistent campaign.

After breaking his leg last season while playing for VFL Club affiliate Sandringham, Jarryn managed to bounce back into the Saints senior side, playing the final eight games of the season.

Jarryn was originally drafted as a rookie from TAC Cup side Bendigo Pioneers, but was elevated to the Senior side at the end of 2007.

 He earned a NAB Rising star nomination after a standout performance against Essendon in 2008, and contributed to the team’s NAB Cup grand final win the same year.

The utility player finally reached a milestone in 2011 by making his first Finals appearance, against the Sydney Swans, after being overlooked the previous two years.
