BS Rookie Review Round 21

Written by Big Sexy on August 21 2012

Again, no write up as there aren’t many looking for Rookie downgrades…….

But, here are my Top 5 Rookies of 2012:

1. D Zorko – Damn you to hell Zorko for playing right before the the bye rounds and having the bye the same week as GWS  so couldn’t come into my team, only to go on and average 96, and peak at $502k with Mid/Fwd capabilities means he’s the number 1 rookie of 2012.

2. J Giles – When No Ruckman has held their own this season (Cox excluded), and the likes of Mummy, Sandibum, L-burger… etc etc have all missed a lot of games, a $126k Rookie Ruckman to only miss 2 games and ave 93 and max out at $501k…. and smash out a 142 and a 177 in the last three weeks is very impressive.

3. T Greene – Played 17 games and an average of 94 and maxed out at $498k, means Greene is my number 3 man.

4. A Treloar – He still sits on my bench and has served me well all year, and now provides fantastic bench cover (assuming he returns this week) as a Mid/Fwd who’s played 16 games at an average of 81.

5. S Shaw – I’m overlooking some other close competitors such as Gibson, Smith, Adams, Elliott, Dickson and Shiel in favor of some defensive love as Shaw has been exceptional since coming in playing 10 games at an ave of 76.

How did you do with your rookies this year?  Who would you like to throw some love to?

  1. Top 3 for me:

    1. Zorko, though i didn’t own him on sc (………..) i owned him on dt ripping ym oponents up to score 1st in the league.

    2. Giles, his price was dirt cheap and averaging 80 or so for 10 games was beast, especially with all the rucks getting injured.

    3. Gibson, gibson is a beast! providing cover for swan for these crutial 2 weeks raking up high score, he has made alot of $$$ and will make a nice trade for a great fwd.

    4.Bugg, bugg has been a good deffender all year scoring 70-80 regullary great for a d7.

    5.Treloar, treloar was a nice pickup for fyth when he got inujred scoring very well, i offloaded him when he scored 7 can’t belive i traded him for the spud known as cloke.., since then treloar has gone beserk raking scores above 100.


  2. BS your rookie calls have been first class all year, and much appreciated. However your best call by far was on july 13 when, after spying him at some footy clinic, u had this to say about buddy…
    ” I’d be surprised if he’s back within 4 based on his limp and obvious pain when walking. If you’re thinking/hoping he’ll be back early – forget it!”

    Gold star for that mate!


  3. Who would you get for your last upgrade?

    T/U – Dangerfield (Melbourne, Gold Coast)
    T/D – Swan (West Coast, Essendon)

    Thanks 🙂


  4. Will be a very close match coming up. We both have GAJ and my opponent will probably use him as captain. Should i take a punt and put Stevie J (he doesn’t have him at all which is a bonus) as captain. They play the dogs at Skilled and GAJ will be heavily tagged by Carazzo. Could still win if we both have GAJ captain not sure what to do?


  5. Great Rookie Review BS. I had all 5 of the above either at the start of the season or when they were on the bubble, but only have 2 left (Zorko & Shaw). Greene & Treloar may have been shipped out a bit prematurely, however from memory they allowed geniune prem’s to come in at the time. I think my logic was that the GWS kids would be capped at 14 games & could cost me in the SC finals.


  6. i had 4/5 of those BS only one i didnt have was treloar and i still have Giles as my 2nd ruck Shaw on the ground Zorko on the ground and Gibson as bench cover


  7. Think I would give Marty Clarke a bit of a Thumbs up. He was averaging about 83 till round 9 and moved to nearly 400,000 giving you a great Spend to up grade. The Defenders been tough this year, he was an ideal early trade to shape your team. Ideal early picks where their to help you trade, the other boys E.G. Zorko Gibson came in late but have been great coverage.
