Player Bio

Background

Originally selected by Gold Coast as a 17-year-old selection, Weller made his way to the Saints through the 2013 Rookie Draft.

An explosive half-forward capable of hitting the scoreboard, Weller played 18 games in 2017 despite being hampered by ankle issues throughout the year.

The Tasmanian has stripped eight kilograms off his frame this off-season as he attempts to lean up and cover more ground in 2018.
