Darragh Joyce will leave St Kilda after six seasons following the news that the club would not be offering the Rower Inistioge clubman a new contract.
Joyce, who captained Kilkenny to All-Ireland minor hurling glory, has made 13 appearances for the Australian Rules side, with three of them coming this season.
The 25-year-old initially moved to St Kilda as a Category B rookie in 2016 and most of his game time in the convening six years has come at VFL level.

The club’s head of list management James Gallagher said: “Darragh’s journey to the AFL was far from traditional, but he embraced every challenge as an opportunity to grow and learn.”
“Since walking in the doors of the club, he’s been a popular member of our playing group and has always been happy to play his role for the team.
“While he won’t be continuing at the Saints, we wish Darragh all the best for whatever comes next, both on and off the field.”
