Rookie Review – Round 19 2022

Written by Alza on July 26 2022

Supercoach finals are here which means 4 weeks to go. We still need our rookies as cover but them playing is more important than their scoring at this stage. As long as we have 1 decent rookie to cover each line then that should be enough to last until the end.

Players on the bubble are shown with an asterisk.

The Good: Martin played a good game as he tends to do with 22 touches, 5 marks and a goal. Seems to be around the 20 touches and 1 goal a game with his marks and tackles varying his score each week. Culley seemed to be in the middle a lot as he had 21 CBA’s. He ended the day with 19 touches at 68% with 8 contested, 4 marks, 7 tackles, 3 clearances and a goal to top it off and will be a very popular trade target this week.

The Bad: Motlop had a quiet day with just 5 handballs and 2 tackles which were both in the last quarter.

    1. That would’ve been nice Wighty but his price will be ruined now so we may as well bring him in now and enjoy it


  1. Great write up again Alza

    Pity so many good rookies have come through late this year 🙁

    Elijah Hollands
    Ash Johnson

    All look like good players for the long term.

    Not too many that haven’t played now (so we can pick them next year) – maybe Sam Darcy from WB (who will obviously really benefit from another AFL pre-season).


    1. Definitely a shame but there are still some decent players yet to debut but whether they keep their spot on the list will be a wait and see.

      Players like Gould, Ely Smith, Wilmot, McDonagh, Dean, Aleer, Moyle and Chesser will be popular in preseason at this stage
