Player Bio

Background

Webster was selected by St Kilda with pick No. 42 in the 2011 National Draft.

The club larrakin put together his most remarkable season in his six-year tenure at the club, becoming the cornerstone of the Saints’ injury-ravaged defence following the departure of Leigh Montagna.

His rebounding skills across half-back, intercepting abilities and selflessness at the contest cemented Webster as one of the best players for the red, white and black following a lacklustre season for the club.

His most prolific performance came against Richmond in Round 10, in which he racked up a career-high 36 disposals and 11 rebound 50s; the latter of which played a pivotal role in him leading the statistic for the Saints by season’s end (81).

With his counterpart in Dylan Roberton set to make his long-awaited return in 2019, Webster is poised to take charge across the half-back line as his Saints strive towards a much-improved year.
