DUAL St Kilda best-and-fairest Sam Fisher has put pre-Christmas accusations of poor behaviour behind him and is leading from the front at training, according to Saints coach Scott Watters.

Fisher was the subject of speculation late last year that his place in the Saints leadership group was being put in jeopardy because of questionable off-field behaviour.

Watters had conversations with his star defender when the reports surfaced and said Fisher was disappointed and even "stunned'' with some of the suggestions.

And rather than be bogged down by the rumours Watters said Fisher decided to "deliver on his actions''.

"He was pretty disappointed with the way it was portrayed ... and quite stunned by some of the comments,'' Watters said today

"We had a conversation about that and his reaction was to train really well

"And from the first day in Colorado (on a pre-season training camp) he made some pretty big statements from a training perspective. He was leading some of the younger players.

"He was pretty unhappy with some of the comments which he believes were completely unfounded.''

Watters short tenure at the Saints has included several off-field disruptions including the sacking of Jason Gram for repeated indiscretions.

The coach said he didn't have a zero tolerance approach to mistakes but alluded to Gram having breached club policies on several occasions.

"People make mistakes and you have yo give people an opportunity to rectify or learn from that mistake,'' Watters told SEN.

"But when you start making repeat mistakes again and again and it starts to compromise what you are doing from a cultural point of view you have to make decisions.

"The team is always bigger than the individual.''

Three weeks out from St Kilda's NAB cup opener Watters said the playing list was "pretty fit and healthy'' with Fisher, Sean Dempster and Stephen Milne all set to re-join full training after being on modified programs.
