Ashley McIntosh

Ashley McIntosh (born 20 October 1972) was an Australian rules footballer for the West Coast Eagles in the Australian Football League. He played a total of 242 games for the club and is the son of former St Kilda and Claremont player John McIntosh.

While capable at either end of the ground, McIntosh most famous for playing at full back, and in 2006 was named as the full back in the club's best team ever over its 20 year existence (since 1987). He won a club best and fairest in 1998, and has been an All Australian.

McIntosh was a very athletic player, and it was often reported that he could run a 100m race in 11.0 seconds. The wiry McIntosh was also deceptively strong. Wayne Carey, on Talking Footy once credited him as the strongest opponent he'd ever played against, which surprised a lot of people, including the show's host Bruce McAvaney.
