Player Bio

Background

Rebounding defender Shane Savage picked up where he left off at the end of 2014, by producing the most damaging and consistent season of his career last year.

The 24-year-old game breaker became one of Alan Richardson’s more potent weapons in 2015 with his run-and-carry ability cutting opposition sides apart at times.

Savage averaged 17.7 possessions (equal 10th most at St Kilda) and 2.3 rebound 50’s (7th), to go with an impressive metres gained mileage.

In December, the New Zealander inked a contract extension, tying him to St Kilda until at least the end of 2017
