Ex-Docker Sam Collins will train with the Saints in a bid to continue his AFL career

THREE delisted players will train with St Kilda over the next fortnight as they bid to revive their careers.

Former Fremantle defender Sam Collins, axed West Coast forward Tom Lamb and ex-North Melbourne midfielder Will Fordham will join the Saints at Seaford, starting next Monday.

None have been given any promises about being picked up.

Collins, 23, played 14 games for the Dockers after being drafted at No.55 in 2015. His closing speed, endurance and competitiveness mean he could bolster the club's depth in key backmen.

Jake Carlisle and Nathan Brown played every game for St Kilda this year. Hugh Goddard has had two injury interrupted seasons while Logan Austin was brought in as reinforcement from Port Adelaide.

Lamb is the grandson of Ian Cooper, who was part of St Kilda's 1966 flag.

The 21-year-old lined up just once for the Eagles after being drafted at No.32 in 2014.

Lamb's athleticism means he could also run through the midfield,  and at 193cm his endurance is enticing.

Fordham, 21, was picked up by the Roos in the 2014 rookie draft at No.33.

He never played for North, but at 188cm offers size to complement his running ability.

St Kilda's first-to-fourth-year players returned from a two-day training camp in Yea on Friday. The rest of the list is due back on Monday, November 20.
