Lockhart had his best game to date and despite going at a DE of 65% and registering 5 clangers for the afternoon, but 20 disposals (13 kicks), 1 goal, 4 tackles and a equal team high 8 marks left him on 86 points – welcome cover for some who were missing Whitfield.


Collins was moved on from a fair few teams during the week but a 47 point game against the Eagles and dip in cash means his time is up for good as his Breakeven matches his average. He finished up with 13 disposals (8 kicks), 5 marks and 5 1%ers for the evening.

Clark made his return to the seniors team after a week off and was popular cover for Whitfield. 41 points from 7 disposals and 4 marks was not what coaches were hoping for. His BE now matches his season average but with a 3 game average 46 points, he is a serious chance to lose more cash on top of the $1.4k he did this week.


Answerth is set to be the backline rookie downgrade choice after posting another solid score of 72 points against Sydney. A little sloppy with a DE of 57%, but given 11 of his 16 possessions were contested, all was forgiven by champion data.

St Kilda pair Joyce and Marsh were bought into the line up to combat GWS. Marsh, playing his first senior game since being delisted by Collingwood a few years ago, only collected 6 disposals but will all being contested, including taking 3 contested marks and kicking a goal, he finished on 56 points. Joyce was recalled after being omitted in Rd2 and finished on 60 courtesy of 11 disposals (6 kicks) at 91% DE and a team high 5 1%ers.

Three other rookies who played their first game on the weekend was Kielty (40), Cumming (37) and Williamson (26) but all left a lot to be desired.

Stack led the way and was Richmonds highest SuperCoach scorer in their loss to the Western Bulldogs. Finishing with 19 disposals (8 kicks) at 90% DE, he has 7 contested possessions, 7 marks (1 contested), 4 tackles, 1 goal and 2 goal assists for 103 points.

Smith goes back to back stud performance for his 18,000 owners collecting 22 disposals (10 kicks), 6 marks, 6 clearances, 3 tackles and a goal for 86 points.

Thomas continues having good scores AFTER popping his price bubble and this time scored 107 against Carlton courtesy of 14 disposals (5 kicks) at 84% DE, 9 contested possessions, 2 marks, 7 tackles (team high), 1 goal and a goal assist.

Atkins was one of several Cats to pick up the slack in the middle with J.Selwood sidelined and Dangerfield injured. Collecting 23 disposals (7 kicks) at 78% DE, he had 13 contested possessions (team 3rd high), 1 mark (contested), 6 tackles and 2 %ers. He was on the verge of being ready to be culled but a timely 87 buys him another fortnight.


Butters has been over churned and after posting 30 points against Collingwood from 9 disposals, it’s time to move on.


Hately was dropped a few weeks ago after his impressive debut but was recalled against the Saints and responded with a 21 disposal (11 kick), 6 marks and a 3 tackle game earning him 85 points. He knows how to score and if he plays, will earn some nice cash but he JS is very questionable and probably depends on Josh Kellys recovery.

Stocker made his AFL debut but was very quiet with just 10 disposals for 21 points. Need to see a lot more next week if he wants to be relevant.


O'BrienADE$340,700 (+$61.9k)12394-11


O’Brien continues to relish his opportunity as solo ruck and this time getting the better of Rory Lobb to finish with 22 disposals (7 kicks) at 68% DE, 5 marks (3 contested), 44 hitouts, 3 tackles, 3 1%ers and 123 SuperCoach points.

Miers is still just doing his thing and pushes his price up over $200k from where he started after a 92 point game against Essendon. 25 disposals (13 kicks) at 80% DE, 5 marks, 2 tackles, 1 goal and a goal assist sees him head into Rd 8 with a BE still in the teens.


Larkey wasn’t able to back up his debut and was unable to struggle the scoreboard finishing up with just 10 disposals (4 kicks) and 4 marks for 40 points. As shown last week, he will need to kick goals if he wants a decent score.

Moore had his fair share of the ball and finished with 13 disposals (7 kicks) at 85% DE to go with 5 marks, 1 rebound 50, 2 forward 50 entries, 5 tackles, 2 1%ers and 2 goal assists for 74 points. Was omitted after his debut game in Rd3 and will pop his bubble in his next appearance.

Corbett has a safe pair of hands and finished with a game high 4 contested marks. One of the main targets when the Suns were going forward, he had 13 disposals (9 kicks), 6 contested possessions, 7 marks and a goal assist but kicked just 2 behinds leaving him on 59 points.

  1. With Petruccelle looking like it is time to say goodbye, it will be an interesting choice for a downgrade. Larkey Moore and Corbett all options for fwd rookies and all with the same average.
    Will be a massive decision for many as a wrong choice could be a massive set back


    1. Spot on Nato.

      I avoided Stack after his second game 40. He has since gone BANG.
      Luckily I got on Ross and Baker.

      Larkey I think you can count out, as he is more a KPP and much less mobile than Corbett.

      Corbett has pretty solid JS ,and looks capable of putting up some decent scores. Just not sure how much ball he will see with the Suns mids getting beaten every week. 59 points without any goals seems pretty good for any rookie forward. He could easily go 80+ with a couple of snags.

      I guess Moore is the hardest of the lot . As more of a half forward he seems the most likely to rack up a few touches and score over 60 most weeks ,but will he get the games?

      It would be interesting to hear from any Hawks fans on this subject.

      Thanks again Hutta for another great Rookie Review.


      1. Then you could argue whether byes play a factor into those choices. Moore out week 12, Corbett out week 14. Corbett will be better to upgrade/downgrade in week 14 as he plays an extra week and all available options would have played their bye.
        Since Moore has it Rd 12, you will have to lose a week of cash gen and trading him out week 12 means another player will still have to have their bye.
        Will the cash gen be better than Corbett, but then JS?
        Lots to consider


  2. I was hoping Ben Cavarra would come save us in the forward rookies downgrade stakes. He got a bit of hype in the pre season but
    “Ben Cavarra has been luckless so far this season and suffered a hamstring strain in the second half for Footscray.”


  3. Warren Tredrea is reporting that Wines and Ebert will both miss the Showdown this week. Willem Drew has nearly peaked, but it might be worth holding him for at least one more week.

    Not so sure you could say the same about Butters though…
