BS Rookie Review Round 10

Written by Big Sexy on June 5 2013

I wasn’t sure how best to tackle the RR with the impending Bye rounds and feel people will do what they ‘need’ to do, rather than what they ‘want’ to do, so here goes:

Rookies on the radar (<$200k) this week:

1)    T Menzel (Mid /Fwd $149k)  Played 2, Mid/Fwd flexibilityRound 13 bye.  A very highly rated junior taken at pick 12, but had LARS last year and given his brother is on his fourth knee reco… alarm bells are ringing.  That said, if his body/knees hold together, he’ll be a superstar.  Started as the Sub in his first game, hence the 12 points and scored 56 this week after being a late replacement for Juddy.

2)    G Burbury (Fwd $115k) Played 2, Ave 57 Round 12 Bye.  JS will be low after the GWS game I’d expect.  George turns 21 in June, and looks like a work-in-progress to me.

3)    K Martin (Mid $110k)  Only played 1, Round 13 Bye.  He was a star in the Pies win on weekend scoring 97 points. He’s a 22yo rookie who won the B&F for Frankston last year.

4)    T Mitchell (Mid $115k) Only played 1, Round 12 Bye.  Mitchell showed he has what it takes to play AFL level, and he certainly has the right build for AFL….. and smashed out scored 87 points.  Mitchell was kept out the team last season with knee and foot injuries which he looks to be over….. and if you didn’t know, he’s the son of Swan’s star Barry Mitchell.  Note: I can quote Mathew Lloyd from footy classifieds where he said “Mitchell wont leave the team now for 200 games barring injury”

5)    D Gorringe (Ruck $149k) Played 2, Ave 58, Round 13 Bye.  “What colour are his shoes?”  Was the call every time he went near the ball in his first season, but now in his third season with bugger-all games due to injuries.  Gorringe now has his chance to shine with Zac Smith out… Though likely competing with Tom Nicholls who made his debut on the weekend and also impressed.

6)    N Hrovat (Mid $114k)  Played 2, Ave 74 but has the Bye – Hold Fire.

7)    S Gimley (Ruck $115k) Played 2, Ave 74 but has the Bye – Hold Fire.

  1. Great write up BS
    Im bringin in Tommy mitchell this week i know he has the bye Rd12 but need the extra $$$$ to bring in a couple of Guns!!!!


  2. Seriously contemplating Nichols in for Daw this week. Allowse to swing NicNat into the forwards. Also frees up some cash for a double upgrade next week.

    TU: Good idea
    TD: Terrible job security, look elsewhere.


  3. Who you you lads trade in for Evans:

    TU Hvort
    TD Martin

    Already snagging Mitchell for M.Jones


  4. Doing something that I hate doing this week: trading in a guy who is not playing.

    Will be bringing in Hrovat for a number of reasons:
    – The rookie that I get has to have a R11 bye or I cop a doughnut;
    – I have to do it this week to get the two premiums that I want;
    – I actually like him better than anybody else available all things considered. He is cheaper than Menzel and I like his JS better than Martin and Mitchell. That being said, if Mitchell can hold his spot he looks like wonderful cover for the rest of the season in the midfield; and
    – My hand has been forced to a certain extent as underwhelming performances from Kommer, M Jones and O’Meara have meant that it is all time for them to go this week.

    Overall trades:
    OUT: Kommer, M Jones, O’Meara
    IN: K Jack, J Selwood, Hrovat


  5. Howm many of


    Are people going to get

    I’m thinking kommer for Mitchell
    And maybe laird out the week after and swing vlustin in to the backs for good if I want another rook mid


  6. Quick poll for some cashola this week…

    Daw for

    Thumbs up – Nichols

    Thumbs down – Grimley….

    Like Mouseman said above neither would start this week regardless but who would be a better pick from a JS and cash cow point of view


  7. Can we still go capt’s loophole this week?

    I take it if you put a player on the bench then his score wont count this week and if you are struggling to field 18 then this is a problem


  8. hey looking for a backline upgrade next week but a little confused :/ anyone got an idea on these 🙂

    Thumbs up: nathan wright>duffield
    Thumbs down: Nathan Wright> Grant Birchall +an extra 100k for a forward upgrade later on



    Being trade happy i love bye rounds and am getting better at this game in my 3rd yr.



    Looking to pick up Ryan Griffen next week for O’Meara.

    Midfield would look something like this:

    M6 would be MARTIN benched with a KERRIDGE/CROUCH upgrade to BARTEL in RD 13 possibly.

    Any thoughts on a good M6 – also thinking GAFF at $381K is a interesting bench option but probably won’t happen for me.

    Team progressing nicely with 17 prems inc HEPPELL & KENNEDY but only 12 trades left and a few Rookies not getting games – Rowe, Currie, Colqhuon, Thurlow on bench.

    Good luck and see you at the footy.

    P.S – Sonja is a bloke…lol


  10. Can see the main trade in 2 weeks time being O’Meara – Mitchell.
    Mitchell bout to play his 3rd coming off his bye, O’Meara bout to have his bye.
    It’s my plan anyway which is why I’m bringing in Martin this week and not Mitchell.
