AFL list changes 2020: Every club’s ins and outs after first list lodgement

Which axed players will get rookie lifeline?

St Kilda is officially all-in in its bid to win a second premiership, with James Frawley's retirement backflip helping strengthen the Saints' backline for a 2021 flag tilt.

The premiership full-back said on Thursday his St Kilda Hall of Fame uncle Danny Frawley would have been proud to see him in St Kilda colours.

Danny Frawley played 240 games at St Kilda as a beloved champion, with his nephew to join him on that number of games when he makes his St Kilda debut.

While Frawley is an insurance play as a free agent at 32, he adds to a growing band of experienced players who have been brought in to a club that senses it is in the premiership window.

With Frawley, Shaun McKernan, Jack Higgins and Brad Crouch the Saints have added 464 games of experience to a team that played in a semi-final against Richmond this year.

Frawley retired from Hawthorn six weeks ago but was lured out of retirement by the chance to extend a career that includes the 2015 premiership at the Hawks.

 

SCROLL DOWN TO SEE EVERY LIST CHANGE AT YOUR CLUB

 

Despite his veteran status he played 52 games over the past three seasons at the Hawks and has not lost the pace that saw him keep Josh Kennedy goalless in that famous premiership.

"It's obviously a huge honour to play for the same club as Danny, and I feel he would have been immensely proud to see me in the St Kilda colours," Frawley said.

"While I was content with retirement, after speaking to James (Gallagher), Brett (Ratten) and Simon (Lethlean) about their plans for this group and what they're building, I couldn't resist being part of it."

Remarkably, he is the 16th player from the Hawks' most recent premiership era from 2008-2015 to move on to a rival club.

Club legend Luke Hodge shocked the Hawks when he un-retired himself to play with Brisbane for two seasons.

But given the Hawks had nudged Frawley into retirement as he and club captain Ben Stratton called time on their careers, he goes with the Hawks' blessing.

St Kilda list boss James Gallagher said the club believed he could add to the defensive mix that already includes Cal Wilkie, Jake Carlisle, Dylan Roberton, swingman Josh Battle and high-priced Port Adelaide acquisition Dougal Howard.

With clubs still juggling cap space player managers are pessimistic about the chances of many delisted free agents moving to new clubs.

Gold Coast is set to sign three-club premiership player Jacob Townsend after the Tigers flag forward was delisted by Essendon.

And delisted Lion Mitch Hinge, the No.20 selection in the 2017 national draft, will join Adelaide after only three AFL games.

Here are all the in and outs your club has made since the end of the 2020 premiership season, along with retained rookies.

Clubs have taken advantage of a rule change allowing players to be moved to the rookie list, while other players have been cut with the promise of a rookie list spot.
