Former North Ballarat Rebel and St Kilda veteran Nathan Brown has re-signed with the Saints until the end of 2019.
Brown has played 13 games this season, set-back by a couple of injuries.
But the new deal will allow the key defender to build on his 160-game AFL career.
“You know what you are going to get with Nathan Brown every single week,” General Manager of Football Lethlean said.
“He regularly plays on the opposition’s best forward and has set a high standard of consistency since joining the Saints at the end of 2016.
“While not in our leadership group, he is a highly respected member of the playing group and is performing a key role in helping develop our young defenders.”
St Kilda faces the Western Bulldogs at Etihad Stadium this Saturday.
