The Saints have been dealt a cruel blow with star midfielder Dan Hannebery succumbing to a hamstring injury during his side’s win over Carlton.
St Kila backed up last weekend’s big win over the Tigers with a 73-55 victory over the Blues at Marvel Stadium on Thursday night.
But the big performance came at a brutal cost with Hannebery forced to ice his hamstring and finish the match on the bench.
The three-time All-Australian has been plagued with soft tissues ever since he joined the Saints at the start of 2019.
The former Swan played just five games last year due to his ongoing hamstring issues.
Hannebery also battled a foot injury during the preseason but had played in all of St Kilda’s matches throughout 2020.
At this stage, it remains unclear as to how many games the 29-year-old could miss with the club likely to go for scans in the coming days.
