Rare Gems – Round 12

Written by The Salamander on June 3 2021

LEGEND: Player Name (Other Position) (Club, Price, Average, Ownership)

In order to present players who are both a) good, and b) don’t have a bye this week, I’ve gone slightly over the usual Rare Gems limit of 3 percent ownership for this edition.


Jack Crisp (COL, $524,900, 100, 3.6 %)

After a slow-ish start to the year, where he posted three scores in the 80s in his first four weeks, Crisp has since been great, and has posted four back-to-back tons in the last month. He also hasn’t missed a game since 2014, so if you’ve used a lot of trades and want players who won’t get injured, he’s one to seriously consider.


Hugh McCluggage (BRL, $584,200, 107, 4.0 %)

His streak of back-to-back tons ended on the weekend with a 74, but from Rounds 4 through 10 the 23-year-old former pick #3 averaged 123, not dropping below 100 once. My one concern would be that Lachie Neale’s impending return may have an impact on his output, but he’s certainly been a great POD for those who’ve had him so far.


Callum Coleman-Jones (FWD) (RIC, $161,200, 112 (1 game), 0.6 %)

I’m not sure what his job security is like, but I do expect Coleman-Jones’ ownership to get a lot higher than 0.6 percent over the next couple of weeks. Just keep in mind that he played forward, not in the ruck, on the weekend, and kicked 4 goals – he’s not going to score 112 every week.


Bailey Dale (WBD, $502,500, 98, 3.4 %)

Backed up his 152-point effort from Round 10 with another ton on the weekend – surely his ownership can’t stay this low for much longer? As with all Bulldogs players, there’s always a slight risk that Mr Magnets will do his magnet thing, but on the whole he looks like one of the better options in what’s arguably the toughest line this year.

  1. CCJ will be doing backup ruck work now with Nank out so won’t be as reliant on goals for the next 4 weeks. Chol will be the primary ruck.


  2. I think I saw somewhere that Crisp led the entire comp for centre bounce attendance percentage last week (excluding rucks) – with Pendles playing hurt and Adams just hurt, Crispy is a full-time midfielder that you can pick as a defender.
