Also jumping on the Chayce bandwagon for now.

Hopefully too many people don't jump on ;)

It's Jones v Bonar for me, and I prefer Jones atm even though he costs more. He's certainly not locked, but for now I like it

Completely agree, RD. This is why I've been making the case for Bonar at F3.

Not because I like the move, but because I've invested so much cash in my Rookies (8x 140K), and structuring up with Docherty F3 / Oliver M5 / Gawn R2 you have to give up the mid-pricer Forward option (Steven / Smith)  and go straight to the Rookies at F3.

Yeah I'm on board,  but for a different reason - I just hate all the fwd prem options, so I'll set all other lines to begin with and then my first upgrades of the season will be forwards - at least this way I get to see the fwds for a bit and see who looks like being the best

I agree / and you know that other than Whitfield, they are not going up in price too much by round 6-7, giving time for the cash cows to fatten. Must going with Whitfield still, giving me ultra premium up forward

I have gone the other way haha. I’m considering Steven at f4 and smith f5 and sacrificing m5 for now. Rowell bonar and Stephens are all in my midfield though and I may even go further and select Anderson/Flanders as well  if they look safe.

Steven and Dev at F3 and F4 with Bonar at F5 also feels like a safe play. It only forces me to start one of Rankine/King on field and my gut tells me they won't be great scorers with the nature of their positions. Rankine will be a small forward in a terrible team and young KPP normally struggle to put up points.

At the moment sitting on

Whitfield Smith Hill
Bonar Rook x 4 (Sturt, Rank, Cox, King)

But now I've read the Whitfield posts it's time to have a look without him.

Rookies I currently have discounting Hill, Smith, Roberton and Bonar on field

Def: Young (Ling, Rivers)
Mid: Rowell, Stephens, Pickett (McHenry, Maginess, Mead)
Ruck:(  Comben Loophole option)
Fwds: Georgiadis, Rankine (King, Skinner)

Obviously not set but those on field look like definite starters.

How many would really love brander to line up for that fwd/def link with hill?

I have rated him for years as a player just hard to get a gig at eagles ... hopefully this is the year. He’s a gun (maybe not for sc yet but for a rookie he will be decent for us)

I've had Brander sitting at D8 next to Starcevich for all of pre-season. I really hope I don't have to tinker with them.

And as you said... it feels so good having Brander back there with Hill on the forward line.

Andrew Gaff said some nice things about him before Christmas, suggesting he could be one to break out (in real footy terms).

Freako, Herald Sun, Live Scoring - there will be plenty of that info flying around. Save yourself the time

Even if Brander does play, he's likely going to be a really poor scorer - excited about him as a fan, but not as an SC option

It’s just where does he play? Literally maybe the wing rotation is all that’s open for him and he’s a big boy.

Shep barrass Hurn
Jetta McGovern ..?.. (prob Duggan/rotham/cole)
Sheed Shuey gaff
Cripps darling Ryan
Allen kennedy ..?...( petrucelle/Cameron/brander?/waterman?)
Nic Nat Kelly yeo
(Hickey redden ..?.. ..?.. (names above/hutchings)

Extremely tight and one bad game and he’s out.

I already have one with the 2019 scores in it as well. I also don't trust just looking at the scores, I rather like looking at why they got their scores as many rookies scores are overinflated in preseason as they are given more opportunity than they would normally be.

Here's Fox Sports take

B: Liam Duggan, Tom Barrass, Brad Sheppard
HB: Shannon Hurn, Jeremy McGovern, Lewis Jetta
C: Dom Sheed, Elliot Yeo, Andrew Gaff
HF: Jamie Cripps, Jack Darling, Jack Petruccelle
F: Oscar Allen, Josh Kennedy, Liam Ryan
FOLL: Nic Naitanui, Luke Shuey, Tim Kelly
I/C: Tom Hickey, Mark Hutchings, Jack Redden, Jarrod Cameron
EMER: Jackson Nelson, Jake Waterman, Tom Cole, Josh Rotham

Brander not in the 26, let alone 22

I don't necessarily agree with that 26, but either Brander has to be a very slim chance for Round 1

And how do you determine the why? Surely a glance at their stats (TOG, possession type etc) is enough to do that

Sorry, just trying to understand how your spreadsheet is any different to all scores/stats that will be out there

Yeah eagles have great depth. I won’t be surprised to see him play round 1, we have to start playing this bloke as way too talented to ignore.
I still Give brander probably more chance than some of these other rookies people think are going to play.

I reckon he plays round 1 for sure but would wanna have a cracker otherwise he’s first out.
Gotta remember this is a guy they refused to give up in trades for Tim Kelly as they valued him greater than a single first round draft pick either this/next year.

Note- might be my bias talking but I absolutely love this bloke and think he will be not only a handy player but a future star of the competition
