After heading into the midfield coaching fold for 2021, Brendon Lade will make his way back into the forward line for the 2022 season.

Lade joined the Saints in 2019 alongside Ratten, bringing with him an abundance of experience from his time as a Senior Assistant Coach of Richmond and Port Adelaide. 

His playing career for the Power was just as successful, complete with 234 games, two All Australians, one best-and-fairest and Premiership honours in 2004. 

Known for kicking a few goals in his time as an elite ruckman, Lade will be keen to bolster Paddy Ryder and Rowan Marshall’s potency deep in attack, along with the rest of St Kilda’s forward armada.
