Bulldogs' Cordy move to St Kilda official

Western Bulldogs premiership player Zaine Cordy has finalised his move to St Kilda.

The Saints have signed the 25-year-old as an unrestricted free agent after he played 118 games for the Bulldogs since making his AFL debut in 2015.

The key defender played in the Bulldogs’ drought-breaking 2016 premiership, with the grand 파라오사이트 final being just his 11th AFL game.

“He’s played his best football as a genuine key defender and, importantly, he will add some height to our group while also giving the coaching staff some flexibility with how we use our talls next year,” Saints list manager James Gallagher said.

“He’s a competitive guy and has a team-first attitude, demonstrated through his willingness to play various roles across the ground.

“While he’s achieved a lot in his young career, we feel confident he can go to another level here at the Saints.”

The Bulldogs will not receive any compensation for losing Cordy after bringing in veteran defender Liam Jones after he opted to retire ahead of the 2022 season rather than comply with the AFL’s vaccination policy.

Cordy was the first deal finalised on Wednesday, with Collingwood ruckman Brodie Grundy’s high-profile move to Melbourne a chance to be confirmed later in the day after the Demons swapped picks with Port Adelaide on Tuesday.
