Shane Savage Biography

Tuesday, 5 August 2014
Shane Savage says some warranted criticism from teammates has helped to turn around his season.

The 23-year-old struggled to find form early in the year and reached a tipping point when he had just eight touches against the Hawks in round seven, in what he described as "a pretty horrible day".

But he said facing his teammates and hearing a blunt assessment of what he needed to work on helped him regain his senior spot in round 14 and hold it ever since.

"It's fair to say I did need a clip and I was taking a bit of time to find my feet at my new club," Savage told SEN on Wednesday morning.

"The leadership group gave me some really good feedback and the main message from them was to come in and believe in yourself.

"That's what I've done and I praise them for doing that because it's really helped me play some good footy."

St Kilda recruit Shane Savage will be eased into pre-season while he deals with hip soreness.

"They've backed me off a little bit; there's no need to get into full strides just yet," Savage said.

"I guess in a couple of weeks I'll be getting into full training and getting into it then.

"I've had a bit of soreness around the hips and they're monitoring that - it's just precautionary and they don't want to blow me upright now.

"There's no issue at all, it's just precautionary."

Sunday, 6 October 2013
Up to six clubs have expressed interest in Shane Savage.

"It's been a really testing year for Shane, not just on the field but off the field. He's had some personal issues," Savage's manager Tim Hazell told Melbourne SEN radio.

"He's been there for five years, played some really consistent football, but he probably hasn't been in the 22 week in, week out. He's always been the one to be the sub or fall out of the side.

"He's just looking to revamp his career, and a fresh start might be exactly what he needs."

Thursday, 3 October 2013
Hawthorn will help Shane Savage find a new home after the frustrated midfielder expressed a desire to be traded.

Carlton, Melbourne, West Coast and St Kilda are reported to have expressed interest in Savage.

Wednesday, 17 July 2013
Shane Savage says a five-game stint in the VFL has helped him rediscover his confidence.

"There was no pressure when I went back to Box Hill," Savage said.

"I could just go back and do my thing, and also help out the side, which was awesome.

"I really enjoyed my time there, and got the spark back. It was exactly what I needed."

Friday, 22 June 2012
Hawthorn midfielder Shave Savage is the latest Hawk to re-commit to the club.

"It's good to be secure for another couple of years, I've gotten some good experience the past few years and I'm starting to feel a part of the team," Savage said.

"They gave me this opportunity and I can only repay them for what they gave me and I'd be happy to be here for life."

Friday, 20 January 2012
Emerging wingman Shane Savage wants to ensure he never misses out on playing in a final for Hawthorn again after failing to make the cut in 2011.

"I've come back into pre-season this year a lot stronger, and if it comes next year I'd be wanting [to make] that finals side," Savage said.

"I'm injury free and my body's feeling really good."

Monday, 16 May 2011
Hawthorn midfielder Shane Savage earns the AFL's Rising Star nomination for Round 8 after a career-high 26 disposals against St Kilda.

''Shane has stepped up this year and has injected a great deal of pace, energy and footy nous into the team,'' Hawthorn coach Alastair Clarkson said.

''His long, penetrating kick and ability to find the goals has been a great feature of his game and he has been a valued and consistent performer in 2011."

Savage says he has been working hard over the summer on his strength and endurance which has paid off this year.

"It was my aim to play the best I can and it was good that I have been getting my confidence out there and getting the rising star nomination is a by-product of the way I've been going out there," Savage said.
