Target Review – Stephen Coniglio?

Written by Big Sexy on March 28 2012

Leading up to the season kick-off we ran a few Target Tests….. now that we are under way, I wanted to gauge people thoughts on how people rate or feel about Coniglio after Round 1.  He was the number 2 Draft pick and cost $191k and scored 59 points in his first game.  Where do you stand?

Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.

  1. All of the top five comments may well be accurate. He will keep getting better, he may win the Rising Star, but he was only average on the weekend (certainly for his price), and i’m glad I didn’t pick him. When you’ve got so many debutants in one team, let alone around the league, it doesn’t make sense to pay that money for a rookie. Devon Smith and Darren Pfeiffer are the uppermost i’ve paid, and that’s for DPP value, as well as the forward line looking a little thin. Ellis is also okay because of a paucity of choice in the backline.

  2. I liked the look of coniglio on Saturday. He attacked the ball and was happy to take the game on… Has a pretty solid arm fend as well. Was taken out of the game in the 3rd with a cheap shot from mcveigh. I would definately hold onto him until he peaks.

    Another issue that’s doing my head in is Paul Bower… Big props from the Carlton news conference this arvo and will def play first 2 with a stron chance of cementing his role. He did avg 86 in 2010. ATM I am holding on to Docherty who is only 10k cheaper and hoping he will be back round 2… What do you reckon?

    Thumbs up – Bower
    Thumbs down – Docherty

  3. If he was playing for a good team he’d win the rising star for sure! As he’s playing for GWS he will get better but I doubt he will win it.

  4. I’m a Carlton fan and if we have any chance of winning a flag, it will not be with this hopeless case, he is useless!!! As soon as we have injuries back he’ll be gone!!! No chance to cement a place in our D!!! If you pick him you will be wasting a trade…

  5. Just saw this re Magner

    MELBOURNE coach Mark Neeld says he still needs to convince himself to pick Jack Watts in Round 1

    Neeld couldn’t give a definitive answer this morning on whether Watts will play against the Brisbane Lions on Saturday.

    “I thought he played OK in the VFL so he’s certainly given himself a chance to be selected,” Neeld said.

    “I just need to be convinced in my own mind that that’s the right way to go.”

    But there is greater optimism for recently promoted rookie James Magner.

    “We upgraded Jimmy to the primary list and that’s on the back of really solid contribution to pre-season and also throughout his NAB cup,” Neeld said.

    Magner, who led the VFL in disposals last season, suffered a finger injury against Hawthorn in the NAB Cup but appears a big chance to play in Round 1.

    “It’s a big decision to promote a rookie onto the primary list and when you do that you’re probably thinking very strongly that he might play,” Neeld said.

    Signs are also promising for co-captain Jack Grimes, with his shoulder making it through Casey’s VFL game on Saturday night, and he will play providing he makes it through the team’s main training session today.

  6. With all the hype regarding Coniglio during the NAB cup & prior, It made me personaly think that opposing coaches may just give him more attention. Juddy I think Swallow last season for GC looked a lot bigger & did well with the pressure but I’m not convinced Coniglio will ujust as well. I understand Ward, Scully & JMac may get the opposition best midfielders ( when all play ) but Coniglio will get the next best!

    He does indeed look silky but when he had the ball on Saturday he didn’t seem like he had a lot of time & was under pressure with most of his disposals.

    Kennedy, Greene, Shiel, Smith & even Bugg running from def into the guts IMO are better value & may even score as well or better than Coniglio in turn saving me $$$$$ to put somewhere else!
