Title: BEST SUPERCOACH ROOKIE PICKS
Post by: Jroo on January 07, 2014, 02:02:22 PM
Found this on the Herald Sun website, some may find it helpful.

DEFENCE

Matt Fuller (Dogs, $117,300) - the mature-aged defender with a super boot joined the Dogs from Norwood and is a huge Round 1 chance

Jeremy Laidler (Swans, $161,800) - a tough side to crack, but averaged 68 at Carlton which is enough for a healthy price gain

Luke McDonald (Roos, $182,300, mid) - lock him in. Starred in VFL finals and already a favourite at Arden St

Kade Kolodjashnij (Suns, $197,300) - expensive, but the Suns isolated KK as their man well out from the draft. Should get a good run

MIDFIELD

Dayle Garlett (Hawks, $117,300, fwd) - slick outside ball carrier with magic goal sense. Behave and he'll be a point-plundering gem

Anthony Morabito (Freo, $123,900) - obvious question marks over those knees but is enjoying a fine summer

Luke Dunstan (Saints, $132,300) - hard-bodied inside mid who the Saints are rapt with

Dom Sheed (Eagles, $167,300) - Simon Black-type who excels at stoppages, kicks goals and is ready to go

Jack Martin (Suns, $222,300) - Most expensive rookie in SuperCoach history is worth it

RUCKS

Rory Lobb (GWS, $117,300) - 205cm ex-basketballer who dominated in the WAFL. Will start behind Mumford and Giles in pecking order

Toby Nankervis (Swans, $117,300) - U18 numbers mirrored Brodie Grundy. Could get a go on the back of Sydney's thin ruck stocks

Michael Apeness (Freo, $137,300, fwd) - could get an early look with Sandi likely to be nursed and Clarke bunging his knee at Falls. Clunks big grabs and kicks goals. Will he shout the Freo tall division tickets to Splendour?

FORWARDS

Lewis Taylor (Lions, $117,300, mid) - close to the steal of the draft. Pocket rocket ready to go and averaged 126 in the TAC Cup

Jay Kennedy-Harris (Dees, $117,300) - Jake Neade-type sizzling at Dees training and should get opportunities at the feet of Clark, Hogan, Dawes

Jack Redpath (Dogs, $123,900) - OK, won't score heavily but a left-field choice. Look for the rookie to get opportunities in the Dogs backline

Gary Rohan (Swans, $176,200) - finally fully fit, Rohan is hard to overlook at this price, if he can avoid the dreaded vest

Jesse Hogan (Dees, $217,300) - averaged 94 playing against men in the VFL last year. A beast who works up the ground and will play from Round 1. Worth the money

The way I see that list..

Fuller: strongly considering

Laidler: won't get regular games

McDonald: Lock

KK: strongly considering

Garrett: Sub material

Morabito: mid season downgrade option

Dunstan: Locked

Sheed: Considering

Martin: Rip off but strongly considering

Lobb: won't be named rd 1

Nankervis: strongly considering

Apeness: unlikely

Taylor: strongly considering

JKH: never heard of him

Redpath: pass

Rohan: not a good scorer

Hogan: rip off but still a consideration

That's not a great list :/ hurry up nab challenge, I need to see these kids in action!

Just a note on Taylor - Unsure of what injury he is carrying but has been training with the rehab group.  Had not done any of the drills prior to Christmas.  Have not heard update this week as yet. (Did not get to todays training session to see)

These are the four I'm most interested in. The defence rookie pool is pretty thin

I can confirm that JKH has been very impressive at training for the Dees. He is in the frame for a round 1 debut.

Another who has also been impressive is the other player that the Dees received in the packaged deal that landed them Jesse Hogan, the player I'm talking about is Dom Barry and he has put on a bit of size since last season and has silky skills. Could also be a smokey for a round 1 debut. Barry is priced at $123,900 and is a midfielder.

Looking at all 4, tryna fit Laidler in there.
Got Clurey instead for now.


MIDFIELD

Dayle Garlett (Hawks, $117,300, fwd) - slick outside ball carrier with magic goal sense. Behave and he'll be a point-plundering gem

Anthony Morabito (Freo, $123,900) - obvious question marks over those knees but is enjoying a fine summer

Dom Sheed (Eagles, $167,300) - Simon Black-type who excels at stoppages, kicks goals and is ready to go

Jack Martin (Suns, $222,300) - Most expensive rookie in SuperCoach history is worth it


got Tyson instead of Sheed. will need to NAB form before choices are cemented.
Not taking a chance on Morabito. might wait and see.

RUCKS

Rory Lobb (GWS, $117,300) - 205cm ex-basketballer who dominated in the WAFL. Will start behind Mumford and Giles in pecking order

Toby Nankervis (Swans, $117,300) - U18 numbers mirrored Brodie Grundy. Could get a go on the back of Sydney's thin ruck stocks

dunno who to get yet.

FORWARDS

Lewis Taylor (Lions, $117,300, mid) - close to the steal of the draft. Pocket rocket ready to go and averaged 126 in the TAC Cup

only person on that list i got is LT. Till Ringo said he's injured now have JKH
Also have Honeychurch and Shaw, been reading that Shaw is killing it, we'll just wait and see.
had Kersten in there to but dunno how many games he'll get.


I can confirm that JKH has been very impressive at training for the Dees. He is in the frame for a round 1 debut.

Another who has also been impressive is the other player that the Dees received in the packaged deal that landed them Jesse Hogan, the player I'm talking about is Dom Barry and he has put on a bit of size since last season and has silky skills.

cheers for that.

Ben Lennon is turning plenty of heads at Tigerland and is said to be a big chance for rd.1. My only concern there is the vest.    ???

Redpath. ;D

Aside from that, a pretty good list.

They've included most of the obvious ones but I think they've missed quite a few players who the more discerning SuperCoaches will be keeping a close eye on.

Absolutely no doubt that he will be right for round 1. He has recovered from his knee injury and is only on a modified program because all of the 1st year boys at the Dees are on a modified program.

Looks like I've cursed the big fella. Landed awkwardly at training today and was escorted off the track with a medico. Stay tuned..

Ben Lennon
http://www.richmondfc.com.au/news/2014-01-20/lennon-makes-an-impression
"I'm hoping to get a place in the NAB Cup team, as 'Dimma' (Hardwick) has said he wants to play his best team for it.
"Hopefully I can get into that and from there if I can get a spot in Round 1.
"I don't want to put too much expectation on myself, but that's the goal."
I've read a couple of articles now about this kid and comes with some wraps on him. A bit on the pricey side at $162k but one to watch for sure.

Post by: Anthonyyyy on January 21, 2014, 03:46:50 PM
Lennon is pricey but for a 5th ot 6th forward !62k isn't to bad considering theres Hogan, Clark, Fasolo etc. all over 200k

I'm very impressed by what I've seen of Benny so far, think he's gonna be a great all-round footballer!

My only problem though is I see our forward line shaping up like this for Round 1 (if all fit):

HF: S.Edwards, J.Riewoldt, C.Knights
FF: Hampson, Vickery, XX

With that last position gonna be fought out by King, A.Edwards, McDonough, Lennon, Gordon, Lloyd plus probably a few more that could play there. Competition's gonna be hot for that last spot in the forward line so will be interesting to see who gets it, I'm just not sure Lennon is gonna have great JS even if he does break into our line up early on!

Yeah I agree Toga, will be tough to break into the team but Hardwick did show last year with Vlastuin and others that he's willing to give them a go, so he will get a run, if its Round 1 or not is another question.
