Player Bio

Billy Longer

Emerging ruckman Billy Longer grasped St Kilda’s No. 1 ruck position in 2015, playing 18 games before a shoulder injury sidelined him for the last month of the year.

The 22-year-old responded to a slow start to the pre-season by producing the best season of his short career.

Longer accumulated the 7th most hitouts in the competition last year, averaging 29.2 per game (ranked 10th in the AFL).

The former pick No. 8, along with Tom Hickey and Jason Holmes form an exciting, youthful ruck division at St Kilda.
