Does everything Essendon fans cry out for, yet a handful of fans wanted him out because he turns it over once or twice a game. Insanity.

The average AFL player already has super human fitness, and Ambrose has at least x 2 that. Turns 28 at the end of the season, and barring injury, I see no reason why he can't be on an AFL for another 4 years at the very least.
So what you're saying is, if the backline adjusts without him we should try and run him through the midfield.

Are you sure that was a recent clip? It's not unheard of for them to use old footage for their packages. Unless it said 'This morning at tulla' or whatever down the bottom I'd be wary.
Yeah that's exactly what it had. "Tullamarine this morning" or something along those lines.

Side note: Also saw Jok running around, so he's alive.

They do usually start running relatively quickly. Won't be available until they're hitting top speed and changing direction at 100% though.

Original return was around round 19 or 20. Looks to be on target for that.

Old photo surely? That's Bellcho running in the background!
From the same article:
“Tom Bellchambers has been pretty slow to get going so far. Given we’re estimating a six-week injury, he’s not quite at the point where he could run yet.

“We’ll just be seeing his progress over the next week or two and making the best decision about how to bring him up towards the end of the season.

You can't really see it on tv but at games he is our best defender at preventing players getting clear leads at the ball.

Would have been massive against Brown
