Ruck rivals now join forces at Saints

One of Tom Hickey's first jobs once he switched AFL clubs was to seek out fellow St Kilda ruckman Ben McEvoy for a chat.

Not only will they be working closely together, but Hickey had vivid memories of coming off second-best against McEvoy in a round-two match this season.

McEvoy also made sure at the time that his less-experienced Gold Coast opponent knew exactly what was happening.

"I actually remember copping a bit of a spray after he `schooled' me in round two a bit," Hickey said.

"It's really good to get out there and teach each other our little tricks of the trade.

"It's all a bit of cheeky banter."

Hickey, 21, will be the ruck understudy at the Saints to McEvoy and Rhys Stanley.

He played 12 games for the Suns over the last two seasons, but decided to move to Melbourne for personal reasons and the Saints were able to secure a trade for him.

Hickey was at pains to say he had no problems with Gold Coast.

He was one of three recruits that the Saints presented to the media on Tuesday as they started pre-season training.

St Kilda also secured WA tall forward Tom Lee and Sydney small forward Trent Dennis-Lane during the trade period.

"We have two players who I see as being eight-to-10 year players at this club," coach Scott Watters said of Lee and Hickey.

"Trent is a midfielder-forward with really good endurance, he doesn't need to touch the ball a lot to impact a game."

Dennis-Lane was an emergency for Sydney in their grand final win and played 10 senior games over three seasons for the Swans.

Watters had previously coached him in the WAFL.

Dennis-Lane said his role in the St Kilda team will become clearer as the pre-season progresses.

The Saints already have several small forwards, led by veteran Stephen Milne.
