Brisbane’s James Aish has been given the AFL Rising Star nomination for round six.

James Aish’s leading role in Brisbane’s first win of the AFL season has been recognised with the Rising Star nomination for round six.

Aish tallied 25 possessions, four tackles and a goal last Friday as the Lions beat St Kilda by three points in Wellington.

The 18-year-old was taken with pick No.7 in last year’s draft and has played all six games of the season to date.

“James is a tremendous young man and his ability to make an immediate impact at AFL level has been impressive,” Lions coach Justin Leppitsch said of the South Australian product.
