Good form in the VFL coming back, now if he strings through a few full games and maintains the 20+ touches he will be putting a lot of pressure on Greenwoods spot in defence

Looks leaner, more toned and better built. Thats just purely by my eye and memory, haven’t compared pictures

Once he gets full fitness and shows he’s ready, they’ll make room for him.
He’s that good if healthy.

He’s got that class and poise you can’t teach.
Closest player we have to James Clement, in my view.
Can't disagree with any of that. What he showed last year will hold him in very good stead, just get a month of VFL under the belt then good to go

They may play different positions but Matty is coming back into that side like it or not so someone gets booted. Aish along with a few others would be among the candidates to make way, you know, if we ever got even close to full strength one day

I agree defensively Aish has been good this year. I also like his attack on ground balls and his handballing. Deceptively good overhead too. I don't like to dismiss the turn overs in assessing his early season form though. They were poor and had me
really concerned he was getting flustered by foot when pressured. That is big because you cant have players turn to water in finals. I still have that concern. Very happy with his game against Melbourne and now hope he can continue that form on.
Nailed it.

He goes to water when he has possession and needs to get rid of it by foot. He ends up just banging it on his boot, and most of the time when you do that from deep in defence, it lands uncontested in the arms of the opposition. He is strong in the air, and okay at ground level, but just turns it over too much when he has to kick it, and in finals that will cost us goals.

Then I could say you could Drop Half the Team IF that was you Bases of Dropping Players.

Aish just can't make some people happy

I haven't seen him play since his return but the stats suggest he has had far less trouble getting his confidence back this time around :)

Does he have the fitness for an AFL game yet?
He’s recently posted PB’s in the 2k and his sprints, and doesn’t seem to be having any issues running out games in the VFL. Been back nearly a month now. I don’t think his fitness should be an issue.
