Player Bio

Background

St Kilda's first-round selection in 2006, Armitage was taken with Pick No. 9 in the National Draft. The 29-year-old quickly proved to be a fierce competitor, a career-defining season in 2015 the tipping point as the contested-king added some outside class to his game.

A 45-disposal, five tackle performance in Round Six seen the big-bodied midfielder establish himself as a star of the competition – going on to average 28.4 possessions (12.4 contested) and 6.2 inside-50ms throughout the 2015 season.

After a solid 2016 season, Armitage was curtailed by injury in 2017 – playing just two senior games. He’ll look to make a full return in 2018, the left-footer able to bring 152-games of experience and proven leadership to the Saints' young on-ball brigade.
