After an off-season filled with engagements, holidays and overseas adventures, the Saints’ first-to-fourth year players were back on deck to officially kick off the 2020 pre-season. 

Hunter couldn't wait to see Pato…

…while we’re still not sure what was said between Wilks and Ratts.

The boys were finally back in town, sporting a brand-new look to go along with it.

St Kilda’s fresh training tops are the first of the season produced by returning sponsor ISC, who have come back on board for 2020 and beyond.


Coaches Aaron Hamill and Jake Batchelor, meanwhile, were both rocking bright-blue numbers.

It wasn’t long before the two bulls were locked in a fierce stare-off to determine who wore it best.

But the new threads weren’t the only change for Max King.

Look closely (very, very closely) and you’ll see a little facial something or other from the No. 12, who’s doing his part to raise money for Movember.

Here’s a close-up to help you out!

He’s not the only Saint growing the Mo to raise awareness around men’s health.

Dean Kent, Jade Gresham and Darragh Joyce will all rock the flavour-saver for the next three weeks.

Love your work, boys!


Gresh looked the goods with his slimmed-down physique...

...while Ratts laid down the law to the young heart of the side in a goosebump-inducing fire-up.
