Rookie Review – Round 9

Written by Alza on May 14 2024

Another great week of rookie scoring for the most part with a number of Collingwood rookies making the most of their chance against the Eagles. Still plenty of cash generation happening with some fattened rookies ready to go and some nice ones on the horizon.

Reville and Sullivan are the best options this week but both come with some risk. They have been very good in their 2 games so far but they have come into the side with significant changes made with injuries. I don’t see either being dropped in the next couple of weeks but can they last until their bye. Reville might have better job security and is probably just ahead at this stage.

Players like Reid and Roberts don’t necessarily need to be traded out this week but they are at their max value and can easily be turned into a fallen premium. They very well could bounce back like McKercher has but at the end of the day they are rookies and will likely drop away slightly as the season goes on.

Richards made his debut and played very well. He had 18 touches, 3 marks, 6 tackles, a goal and 8 score involvements. Ball use of 56% with 4 clangers but still managed a ton. Mead had a fair chunk of mid time this week and made the most of it with his best career score. He had 22 touches at 86% and 7 tackles.

The Bad: Harrison was unfortunately injured very early on after 1 touch. Cadman struggled in this game with just 5 touches and 3 tackles. Drury was subbed out with 6 touches in 55% TOG.

Time To Trade: Reid, Thomas, Cadman, Lefau

10 thoughts on “Rookie Review – Round 9”

  1. Another great write up.
    Rising Star still up in the air. Harley Reid seemed to have his rest at an in opportune time and with Yeo out, both his scoring and Wet Toasts has dried up.


  2. I suspect that Richards or Harrison will fill Elliott’s spot, if he is out for a while. Harrison’s injury plus Richards’ good form might put Richards a little ahead. We get another look this week against better opposition, plus we will hear more on the injury front, but I think Richards might be a viable option.


    1. DeGoey, Mitchell, McCreery all to come back outs big ???s next to job security question. Reville the one for me on the pine


      1. Just my opinion, but I see it as

        Mitchell = Macrae
        McReery = Harrison
        McStay = McInnes
        Elliott = Richards
        DeGoey = Sullivan
        Howe = Mihocek = Markov/Noble. (Got away with playing small)

        Possibly got this all wrong but that’s what I am hanging my hat on for Richards


  3. Reville only had 53% ToG this week, surely that is of concern?

    TU Yes
    TD You’re over thinking it


    1. TOG is a concern for sure, he only had 60% against the Suns when they all had really high game time with all their injuries.
      That being said, the players that Reville seems to be replacing are longer term prospects at this stage


  4. Anyone have thoughts on Jackson Archer’s JS and scoring? A defensive rookie would be helpful for unlocking funds and I’ve held Reid this whole time so can’t use him if he comes back.


    1. “Jackson Archer, having just recovered from a sprained ankle suffered in Round 8, came out of Round 9 with a foot complaint.”

      Keep an eye out for today’s injury list and/or team sheets.
