Player Bio

Background

Savage was originally selected by Hawthorn with pick No. 75 in the 2008 National Draft, before making his way to St Kilda at the end of the 2013 season.

The seasoned defender carried over his consistency from his strong finish to 2017, playing 18 matches last season before succumbing to a hamstring injury for the last four rounds.

With fellow backman Dylan Roberton absent for the majorit of 2018, Savage chaired the responsibility of being St Kilda’s chief distributor across half-back and from the kick-in; a task he shared alongside Jimmy Webster.

Strong on the rebound and possessing a deadly left boot, the 28-year-old will continue to be a pivotal piece to the Saints’ backline as they begin their ascent up the ladder.
