Player Bio

Background

Drafted by St Kilda with pick No. 39 in the 2016 National Draft, Battle is a promising young forward with elite endurance.

The Haileybury College and Vic Country spearhead impressed at the under-18 championships, kicking the most goals for any division one player (11 in four games). He made his AFL debut in Round 17 against Essendon.

After spending his first year with the Saints juggling AFL commitments with the demands of Year 12, Battle has jumped headfirst into his first full pre-season and is well positioned to add to his one senior game in 2018.
