Player Bio

Background

Rice was acquired by St Kilda as a father-son selection (using pick No. 49) in the 2015 National Draft.

It took the hard-nosed defender three years to make his senior debut, but his 11 games for the year showed the 22-year-old was more than capable of holding his own in defence.

A strong performance against Sydney in Round 12 (20 disposals, nine marks) was one of Rice’s most prolific efforts and one of the few highlights for the Saints that evening.

But his most memorable game was that against West Coast, in which he got to play out a full game alongside his best mate, Brandon White, finishing with 16 touches and five marks.

With his commitment unwavering and his hardness unquestionable, Rice will be adamant on taking to the field more often in the red, white and black.
