Ron Barassi shares a brave and powerful chat

Ron Barassi wants to meet face-to-face the man who bashed him in St Kilda three years ago.

A 28-year-old man's been found guilty of intentially causing serious injury to Barassi and a woman on New Year's Day three years ago.

Barassi says the man is a "thug" but if he wants to turn his life around he'd help.

The footy legend's also revealed the effects of the bashing are still with him - he's unable to hold a conversation and is suffering a degree of memory loss.
