Aaron Fiora played 62 games from 2005-2008 after crossing to the Saints from Richmond.
Whether you have played one senior game or 300, you are part of the fabric of St Kilda Football Club.
In the last couple of years we have made great strides in tracking down our past players and improving our contacts list.
Much of the thanks for that is due to our fans who have responded magnificently to our calls for help. One of the most important reasons for reaching out to our former Saints is tell them of the benefits available from the AFL Players’ Association to assist in medical costs.
Now we need our amateur sleuths to put together the last pieces of the jigsaw. Please send an email to rholmesb@bigpond.net.au if you have any idea of the contact details or whereabouts of these former Saints:

How good does that Saints search pic look.

Like you say sammm.......it's incredible that we still don't know where some players are today given the size of the Saints past players group and all the work that group does.

I guess people just disappear off the radar.

Pretty sure Sweeney’s still boarding at Pluggers joint. Might be wrong.

Fiora was ok and unfairly bagged by supporters imo, seen him go back and take plenty of marks without flinching

This is true. His marking in particular was really courageous. Played some great games but probably lacked consistency and was always going to be judged by his high draft pick. Blokes like him and Jason Traianidis were a conundrum - seemed to have all the talent in the world.
