Ashby broke through to make his debut last season and registered five games for the year. The half-back impressed in his second game, when he gathered 22 disposals against Fremantle at Patersons Stadium and wasn't overawed. The poised and calm running defender has shown an ability to shut down an opponent while providing rebound. His promise was rewarded when he signed a two-year contract through to the end of 2016.
