Player Bio

Maverick Weller followed up his impressive first season at the Saints with an even better campaign in 2015. The ultra-professional played all but two games last season, taking him to 36 appearances in two years at St Kilda.

The Tasmanian spent the bulk of the year playing in the midfield, although as the year progressed he spent more and more time forward in a role that looks likely to continue this season, particularly with a reduction in interchange rotations.

As a member of St Kilda’s leadership group, Weller has established himself as a key part of the clubs future, helping chaperone the next generation as the likes of Nick Riewoldt, Sam Fisher, Leigh Montagna and Sean Dempster come to the end of their decorated careers.
