Player Bio

Background

Originally taken by Fremantle with pick No. 49 in the 2009 National Draft, Roberton made the move east at the end of 2012.

After arriving at St Kilda, the former Dockers backman has built his game over the last couple of years, now thriving as part of a new-look back six that includes key defenders Jake Carlisle and Nathan Brown.

The 26-year-old had an outstanding season last year, producing strong efforts against West Coast, Brisbane, Collingwood, Geelong and Hawthorn early in the year.

While Sam Docherty, Michael Hibberd and Rory Laird were picked ahead of him in the All-Australian team, the game-breaking Saint has certainly enhanced his reputation following a stellar 2017 campaign.
