Rookie Review Round 8

Written by Big Sexy on May 19 2010

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

1)    T Armstrong (Mid 100k) There haven’t been too many highlights for Adelaide, but Armstrong was dropped after a run earlier in the season after a poor performance, and returned the week with a vengence.  He is one of the rare rookies to crack the hunge in his first few games scoring 101.  

2)    B Sheppard (Def 149k)  is another high dfat pick getting a run for WC and has taken two big steps in his first two weeks, racking up a lazy 87 in his second game.  I think he’d be a solid investment, and barring injury, definiteyly get a few more runs

3)    L Stevenson (Mid 159k)  Stevenson had his best run of the season scoring 76 and looking like he’s pushing for a regular spot….  I’ll be interested to see if he is competeing with Shuey for a spot in the WC side now that he’s back from injury…. I hope not as I still have Shuey on my bench.

4)    G Rohan (Mid/Fwd 154k) He’s played his two so far, and looks to be getting better, and I personally like the look of him and how he plays.  As he’s both Fwd/Mid I’m looking to draft him into my midfield bench to give me a solid emergency and and some flexibility up forward.

5)    H Playfair (Fwd 107k) A definite dark-horse for me to nomiate, but ever since he was running around with the Cats he was a solid lead-up forward who presents well, but wasn’t the straightest kick.  A solid first up game scoring 69 and I’m not sure what Roos thinks about him or whether he’ll keep his spot, but he might just be worth a gamble if he gets another run next week and performs ok.

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

  1. He’s not cheap but I’m considering Cunnington. Now that you’ve brought Armstrong to my attention I’ll definitely be running the glasses over him as well. Thanks Massive Sexy!

    1. I picked up cunnington on the bubble, been a solid performer ever since. I think it’s the misleading average that has kept people away.

    2. Don’t forget Rohan…. I’m prob gona snap him up on my midfield bench this week if he’s named… although he’s not scoring great right now, he gives me some more flxibility up forward.

  2. What’s your thoughts on Webberley, BS, I was looking at downgrading Gram for him and pocketing around $300k. Will Webberley play the season out or will he be in and out of the team?

    1. Hey PA, I think Webberley has been pretty Solid with two 50’s and should get a stack of opportunity in defence with the Tiges. Two reasons, who else can they play, and the ball should be in the area a LOT I think he’s prefect if you just want a bench player or to cash in one of your other rookies. The only negative is that for some reason defenders in good teams score better than bad teams (maybe midfield pressure)

  5. Adelaide have just imposed 3 suspensions to player for breaching training rules

    Three Adelaide players have been suspended from the AFL for one week.

    Bernie Vince, Matthew Jaensch and Graham Johncock will not be available for AFL selection this week.

    The suspensions – for breaching training and preparation standards – were recommended by the senior leadership group and endorsed by the senior coach and selection committee.
