Attard was delisted by the Lions at the end of the 2006 season.. Attard was then drafted as a rookie by the St Kilda Football Club in the 2006 AFL Rookie Draft. He was elevated to the senior list at the start of the 2007 season, and made his debut with the Saints in Round 1. He has been highly serviceable as a defender/tagger.
After an impressive first year at the Saint's, Attard ruptured his ACL in Round 21 of the 2007 season, continuing the Saints shocking run of injuries. He is expected to miss the majority of 2008, if not all.
