Player Bio

Player Bio

Long was selected by St Kilda with pick No. 25 in the 2016 AFL Draft.

A fractured metatarsal in his right foot saw the excitement machine sidelined for 12 weeks after getting off to a promising start in his second season of senior football.

Blistering to watch and classy with his finishes, Long was a sight to behind during his limited run last season.

His audacious goal to bring the Saints within a goal of Greater Western Sydney in the final five minutes of the game – in which he played on from the boundary and jagged a 40m snap through the big sticks – was a testament to such delight.

Fully fit and in fine form heading into the new season, Long will undoubtedly be a vital cog to the Saints’ offence.
