Player Bio

Background

Battle was selected by St Kilda with pick No. 39 in the 2016 National Draft.

Although he played just six games last season, the Haileybury product left a lasting impression during his time in the senior line-up.

Coming into the side against Sydney in Round 12, Battle was a shining light with 14 touches and two goals in just his second game.

Battle’s inclusion to the side resulted in a combined 19 majors between himself, Paddy McCartin and Tim Membrey over just three matches, of which the 20-year-old kicked six.

Injury and concussion halted the Saint’s run, but not his work ethic, which has remained unwavering heading into 2019.

With a move to defence on the agenda thanks to his penetrative kicking and ability to read the play, Battle will be set on using his talents up both ends of the ground to drive the Saints forward.
