Aaron Fiora played 140 games for Richmond and St Kilda between 2000 and 2008. He is originally from Naracoorte, South Australia.
Fiora was selected in the 1999 AFL Draft at pick number three by the Richmond Tigers. He was considered at the time to be one of the most talented youngsters in the junior leagues. Fiora played mainly as a wingman and showed pace and excellent skills. Fiora's form was inconsistent as he failed to live up to the expectations placed upon him before being drafted. After five uninspiring years at Richmond, Fiora was traded.
At the end of 2004 Fiora was traded to St Kilda as part of a deal involving Troy Simmonds and Heath Black. He was still a fringe player but played several solid games in 2005. His 2006 season was much quieter, however, and he struggled with form despite playing 17 matches.
Fiora was retained when new coach Ross Lyon took over in 2007 and was given the number 17 jumper, previously worn by tough midfielder Stephen Powell. Under Lyon's tutelage Fiora enjoyed an excellent and consistent season, having improved his offensive running ability. He became a regular goalkicker for St Kilda in 2007 and averaged 15 disposals, 5 marks and 2 tackles over the course of the season and finally looks to have cemented his place as a solid AFL footballer. At the end of 2008 he was delisted from St Kilda.
