This will be my last written RR of 2013 as I’ll be sitting on a beach in sunny Qld for a couple of weeks, but I’ll schedule a post in the coming weeks for anyone to discuss a rookie who might grab their eye for 2014 planning.
Rookies on the radar (<$200k) this week:
1) M Grigg (Mid $178k) Griggles had his third good game in a row punching out a ripping 90 points on the weekend. He’s already had his first price hike, but is really looking the goods. He scored 29 in round 17, then came back in round 19 scoring 96. His 28 and 96 followed the stylish green vest. His 96 coming after he came on during the third qtr… Impressive!
2) M Spanger (Fwd $128k) Spanger with his third club having played 26 games with West Coast and 6 games with Sydney is now with the Hawks and smashed out a lazy 17 disposals and 84 points against GWS in round 8, and returned again this week for his second run had 11 disposals, 6 marks and kicked a goal scoring him 75 points. I think he looked pretty good and am surprised he didn’t get few more games this season.
3) L Johnston (Fwd 196k) Unfortunately has started the year at that awkward price having played one last year. However Johnson has had two rippers in a row having had 17 disposals, taking 7 marks and kicking 4 goals and 94 points first up, and 11 disposals, 4 tackles and a goal this week for another 70 points… and no vests.
4) T Curren (Mid $162k): Curren has played the 4, and gone up in price already and smashed a lazy 83 out on the weekend. Sometimes you can see when player ‘has it’ and when they don’t and I can tell you now the BS thinks Curren has what it takes. I’ll have my eye fixed on his starting price next season, as if he stays on the park and gets a good pre-season under his belt I feel Curren and Steven will be the future of the Saints midfield brigade.
