Alex Fasolo has been working hard to build his fitness base

James Aish, Alex Fasolo and Jarryd Blair are among the AFL-listed players who’ll be out to impress when Collingwood’s VFL team takes on the Box Hill Hawks on Sunday.

Aish, Fasolo and Blair were all sidelined by injuries through the middle part of the season, and they need to continue building their match-fitness before being considered for a recall to the AFL team.

Aish and Fasolo have been named as emergencies for this weekend’s AFL game against the Sydney Swans at the SCG, as have Adam Oxley and Sam McLarty.
