Persistent injuries to Dustin Fletcher opened the door for the off-season recruit to play a prominent role in 2015. James Gwilt featured in the AFL side 11 times proving a reliable defender. The 29-year-old has signed on for another season with the Bombers and given the departure of Jake Carlisle, will provide an important defensive option. 

Season By Season

Season By Season

Had issues with his left knee - the one he had reconstructed in 2011- and was kept to 13 games for the Saints before he underwent surgery at season's end that delayed the start of his pre-season. Had to play above his size on multiple occasions because of injures to fellow defenders. Played his 100th game in round nine and finished fifth at the Saints for one-percenters. 

Season By Season

Gwilt’s flexibility was an attractive proposition for the Bombers, who secured him as a free agent at the end of last season. St Kilda cut the 28-year-old after 126 games with the club, including the two Grand Finals in 2010. Although most likely to hold down a role in defence, the Bombers see Gwilt as an option in attack and feel his addition can help free up one of their emerging young talls.
