Player Bio

Background

Armitage was selected by St Kilda with pick No. 9 in the 2006 National Draft.

After being ravaged by injury in 2017, Armitage managed to squeeze back into the senior line-up in 2018, lining up for 15 games as hamstring tendinitis continued to hinder the 30-year-old.

Having played 167 games at the conclusion of 2018, Armitage sits fourth in terms of experience on St Kilda’s current list, sitting only behind Dan Hannebery (208), Jarryn Geary (183) and Jack Steven (176).

Although out of the side for two three-week blocks last year, Armitage provided plenty of grunt afterwards, spurring the Saints on to victory over Gold Coast and Melbourne with 25 and 26-disposal efforts respectively.

With the addition of Dan Hannebery into the midfield, Armitage will welcome another seasoned head as he pushes past his injury niggles and forges a telling 2019.
