Player Bio

Background

Established star Leigh Montagna showed no signs of age slowing him down last year, with the 32-year-old midfielder producing another exceptional season.

Despite missing five games in 2015, Montagna finished fourth in the Trevor Barker Award behind winner Jack Steven, David Armitage and Sean Dempster.

The dual All Australian, who will play his 250th game against Port Adelaide in round one, averaged 28.6 possessions (highest at St Kilda), 5.3 inside 50s (2nd), 4.8 tackles (4th) and 3.5 clearances (3rd) in an ultra-consistent season.
