Player Bio

Background

After troublesome foot issues hampered most of 2013 and 2014, threatening to draw the curtains on Sam Gilbert’s career, the rebounding defender finally worked his way back in the second half of last season.

Gilbert managed just 15 games across the previous two years, before 11 of the final 12 games of 2015 to build some confidence heading into this year.

An established star from the Grand Finals era, Gilbert’s return to full fitness was rewarded with a two-year contract extension, which should result in the left-footer being a one-club player.

In 11 appearances in 2015, Gilbert averaged 17.7 possessions (equal 10th most at St Kilda), 4.7 tackles (5th) and 4.5 marks (11th) to re-establish himself as a weapon coming out of the back half.
