Max Hall has officially been added to St Kilda’s list following tonight’s mid-season rookie draft, joining the red, white and black at pick No. 4.

A 22-year-old midfielder/half-forward previously plying his trade at the Box Hill Hawks in the VFL, Hall is one of the most improved players across the major state league competitions over the past 12 months, whose notable rise has now landed him on an AFL list.

The Saints opened up a list spot prior to the mid-season draft after moving injured defender James Van Es to the club’s inactive list.

“We’re very pleased to welcome Max to St Kilda,” Talent Identification and Player Movement Manager Simon Dalrymple said.

“Max has been a player we’ve kept tabs on for some time now and we’re thrilled to have him as a part of our list.


“He’s a tough midfielder/half-forward who comes equipped with speed, endurance and tenacity, but also has good football smarts and the ability to make sound decisions under pressure.

“We wish Max all the best during his time at St Kilda and look forward to welcoming him and his family to RSEA Park.”

Hall becomes the third player to join St Kilda via the mid-season draft, following on from Cooper Sharman and Max Heath.
