Kerry duo Tommy Walsh and David Moran have passed their medicals at St Kilda ahead of the new AFL season.

The pair arrived in Melbourne last week and had their fitness assessed by the club’s medical staff over the weekend.

Walsh is now ready to begin his two-year contract with the AFL Grand finalists, while Moran is gearing up for a two-week trial with a view to securing a contract also.

Moran told the Irish Sun: ‘I know it's going to tough because I've only got two weeks to make a good impression, but I'm going to give it everything I've got.’

While Walsh insists he has no regrets about leaving Kerry. ‘It was definitely the right time for me to leave the GAA after we won the All-Ireland this year,’ he said.

‘I knew after last year, when I trialled with St. Kilda, that I wanted to make a go of being a professional sportsman and I can do that in the AFL.’
