Weller crossed to St Kilda at the end of 2013 after playing 32 games at Gold Coast.

He finishes his time at Moorabin after 89 matches, including 13 this year. He struggled to hold his spot in the seniors at times despite strong form in the VFL. 

It appears Weller holds out hope of furthering his AFL career, having finished his post with "hopefully more to come".
