Rookie Review – Round 15

Written by Alza on June 27 2023

Only a handful of good scores by the rookies this week but some fairly big ones from popular players like Johnson and Sheldrick at a perfect time. Rookies become slightly less relevant now with teams about to be ‘complete’ over the next 2 weeks. Although this is true there is still 9 weeks remaining and it is just about a guarantee we will have to rely on a rookie to cover for a week or two in that time.

Players on the bubble are marked with an asterisk.

The Good: Henry played his best game out on a wing. He finished with 32 touches and 8 marks with over 500 metres gained. Sheldrick had another great game rolling through the middle to get his 29 touches with 12 contested, 4 marks, 4 tackles, 4 clearances, 12 score involvements and kicked 1.3 and must have cemented his spot in the side now.

The Bad: Maric struggled as did a lot of Eagles. He had 6 touches, a mark and 2 tackles.

  1. Sorry Mitchell but the now is the time for you to leave my team even though you should make more cash.
    Thank you for your cash gen and I now hope Bont will make good use of your contribution


    1. If you can use him to get the bont then go for it!

      Ive decided he will be my d7 / f7 cover for the rest of the year. His dpp is valuable and dont think he is a sub risk anymore


      1. Would have traded Johnson but Mitchell to a 102k player gives me Bont and 5.7k itb.
        Will still have 200k cash to use if I downgrade Johnson


  2. With Campbell Chesser averaging 27, there is a chance that he is rookie priced again next year. I just know I will be tempted again.


    1. Hewett for me, Eagles will get games into him he has just had some issues staying on the park. Think he did a hammy earlier in the year and then the concussion from De Goey.
      Fletcher is probably in the team for another couple of weeks until Zorko, Rich and Gunston return, not the same positions but I would think it would see him drop out still. The Lions with Sharp is what I’m imagining happening again.
