Pre Season Rookie Review – Defenders

Written by Big Sexy on March 20 2013

Top 5 Defenders – In no particular order

N Vlastuin (Rich) $159k:  Pick 9 in the 2012 National Draft from the Northern Knights.  Looked solid in the NAB Cup and has big wraps from team mates and coach.  He’s 187cm powerfully built mid/Fwd and also captained Vic Metro in the U18 championships.

D Terlich (Melb) $109k:  Was taken Pick 68 from Norwood.  186cm, 85kg, and a mature age rookie at 23 he’s ready made for AFL level.  He’s a 186cm who was a former Sydney rookie who’s expected to be a big contributor for Melb this year.

S Docherty (Bris) $115k:  184cm 19yo was taken at Pick 12 in the 2011 National draft, but didn’t play last year due to a hamstring injury, but up and running now and ready for a big 2013.

S Colquhoun (PA) $109k:  Was taken Pick 3 in the 2013 Pre-Season Draft.  He’s a 184cm and starred in the midfield for SA in the U18 championships.

W Langford (Haw) $115k:  Turns 21 in July and played 11 games for Box Hill last season.  He’s 187cm and I wonder if the Suckling knee might open an extra door.  Son of an absolute legend!

Tell me who should be added to the list or taken off in the comments.

  1. Hey Big Sexy,

    Good list. What are your thoughts on Goodes (now off the Rookie list) and Pittard and Steveson from Port??




  2. Great write up, not sure on Vlastuin or docherty.
    I think both could be subs and 50k extra for Vlastuin instead of Pittard isn’t worth it imo
