Rookie Review Round 14

Written by Big Sexy on July 7 2010

My Top Five Rookies (<$200k) of the week:

1)    A Strijk (Def 83k) has now played his two games with essentially two 50’s and whilst not setting the world on fire logic suggests that given West Costs current situation the youth will get a run.  Hopefully he can keep his spot when Hurn returns but only time will tell, I think he’s done enough and is my best bargain prospect after round 14.

2)    R Henderson (Def/Fwd 175k) has now been on the Rookie Review hot list three weeks in a row and hasn’t failed yet.  He’s actually a decent player and I am surprised his price hasn’t jumped more with another 83 on the weekend.  Being a DPP may come in handy for SC finals also.

3)    T Slattery (Def 100k) played well in his first game in a team that got absolutely flogged.  The Axe will fall in bomber-land but hopefully not on young Slattery.  I ‘think’ brother to Henry at the Bombers, he should get a few opportunities so long as Fletchers return doesn’t push him out.  He scored 85 on the weekend, so if your not in a hurry, lets see how he goes next week.

4)    J Blair (Mid 100k) is another promising youngster, but unfortunately the Pies haven’t been blooding too many new youngsters this year so will be surprised if he can hold his spot over the coming weeks, but he scored a rock solid 79 last week in his first game and if the Pies get some injuries to free up some spots Blair may be a very handy bench player.  Lets see how he goes next week if you can wait.

5)    J O’Brien (Def/Fwd 94k) To be honest, I didn’t think he was that great.  With the ball he did get, I didn’t think he used that well and I am concerned he will be straight out when the Lions get some players back…… but he scored a reasonable 45 in his first game reality is the Lions have a lot of players on the sidelines… so hopefully he lifts a little next week… lets wait and see.

First Special mention: T Dennis-Lane played his first game and scored 23 on the weekend.  I had my eye on him in the pre-season and will be interested if he can improve Pods style being a mature age rookie.

Tell me what you think?  And what Rooks your looking at trading in this week? ….

  1. Love the Rookie Reviews BIG SEXY, but can you please fix up your language at the bottom (Tell what you think?). I read it every week and IT DOESNT MAKE SENSE!

    Sorry for being so anal, but ive bottled that up for every rookie review ive read this season and its driving me insane. Its either: ‘Tell me what you think’
    – With no question mark. Or its ‘What do you think? Pick one and have it ready for the next review otherwise I may just go even more insane.

    Thanks mate.

    1. I hear you Cam, I had Banner as one of my original rookies at the start but had to dump him as i had the same issue with Shuey. ironically I still have Shuey sitting on my bench as I thought he would come back first.
