Player Bio

Background

Longer was originally selected by Brisbane with pick No. 8 in the 2011 National Draft, before returning to his home state and joining St Kilda at the end of the 2013 season.

After squeezing out Tom Hickey as the number one ruckman in 2017, Longer fell out of favour last season as injury and form saw him line up just the five times in the red, white and black.

Longer played the first two rounds against Brisbane and North Melbourne before being omitted for 10 weeks, making his return for two of St Kilda’s victories over Gold Coast and Melbourne.

His best game for the season came in the clash against the Suns where he notched up 33 hit-outs, inclusive of the brilliant tap which allowed Jade Gresham to kick the match-winning goal.
