Great move!

Given how few players we have over 28, I'm happy giving him a spot. He's basically replacing Nathan Brown. Like Mckernan is replacing Abbott. 2 old guys in for 2 old guys, like for like.

Frawley brings an extra big body in defense. Extra depth.

And of course a connection with a Saints legend.

I like the way our list has shaped up.

Welcome Chip!

Pretty astute pick up by your club.

He has played quite well the last two years and a few of us on the Hawks board were surprised he wasn't given another year. He is still very quick for a big lump of a lad.

In all the years he has been at the Hawka I can't honestly remember one occasion in which a key forward got the better of him.

Just don't expect precision kicking out of defence!

Also going to be a nice bit of synergy that his first game for St Kilda will be his 240th, matching his uncle's career tally. Given we'll surely be honouring Spud at some stage in 2021, it might be motivating for both the playing group, and Frawley himself, to earn a spot in that game, at the very least.

Great news to hear that we have picked him up, gives us another strong experienced key defender, an area we are lacking depth in and the fact he is related to Danny Frawley is a nice sentimental story.

I would still pick Carlisle ahead of Frawley at the start of the season but anything can change . The good thing is if one gets injured we still have the other . How much could we have used Frawley this year in the Semi against Lynch and the Tigers when Carlisle had to go home due to a new baby .

He was very good. A lot higher standard than getting moved on from the 15th placed team. Maybe Frawley can reinvigorate himself like Ryder has but the onus is on him to show it.
Frawley may or may not have an impact but it was clear at the end of the season just gone that Jakey was not being rushed back by the coaches.
Jake was my preferred option all season but he has looked a little off the pace. I think if he showed us anything against the bulldogs it’s the fact we needed a KPD. Is he the man going forward? Don’t know.
