Fantastic night for the Club

The GIANTS have added some dash to their backline by selection Lachlan Ash from the Murray Bushrangers at pick four in the 2019 NAB AFL Draft.

GIANTS National Recruiting Manager Adrian Caruso said: “Lachlan stands out for his run and carry off half-back.

“He performed strongly at all levels over the last three years and co-captained Vic Country in 2019.

“We feel like his ability to attack and use his speed to create is important in the modern game which is why we are delighted to bring him in.

“While Lachie has played most of his football down back, we think down the track there might be some scope for him to play other roles.

“His competitive nature and drive gives us confidence he will become a key member of our side.”

Ash – who was named in the 2019 NAB AFL Under-18 All Australian team – possesses line-breaking speed and the ability to read the ball exceptionally well.

A fantastic leader, Ash averaged 23 disposals in his four games as Vic Country co-captain in the 2019 NAB AFL Under-18 Championships.

Clean by foot, Ash can also play through the midfield as he demonstrated when he returned to the Murray Bushrangers in the NAB League.

The 18-year-old averaged 23 disposals per game for the Bushrangers in 10 games to cap off an impressive season.

Perfect choice, exactly what’s needed right now which is run from defence

Brilliant trade to get him. Never mind Green, there’s every chance Adelaide would have drafted Stephens at 4 and then Sydney Ash at 5.

If Adelaide’s given up the next Lachie Whitfield then my annoyance will only be tempered by the fact GWS will have him...

Nice interview, his most preferred option was always NSW.

Every interview you read or see with this young man is impressive.

Fingers crossed he has no injuries/bad luck and gets a good crack at it because if he does I have no doubt he will be a star.
