The Rookie List

I may be bored. Thought I would put together my best rookie list team

Pull it apart

B – Heath Grundy – Ben Rutten – Dale Morris
HB – Tadhg Kennelly – Nathan Bock – Liam Picken
C – Michael Barlow – Matt Priddis – Danyle Pearce
HF – Dean Rioli – Quinten Lynch – Luke Bruest
F – Stephen Milne – James Podsiadly – Mark Johnson
R – Dean Cox – Matthew Boyd – Ben McGlynn

Int – Aaron Sandilands – Stewart Crameri – Nick Maxwell – Brad Sewell

Emergency – Russell Robertson – Damien Peverill – James McDonald

Would be interesing to see where the best rucks are found. Wouldnt think too many came early in the draft

Looking through the list of rookie players, there’s some serious quality available in the back line and ruck.

I’d be tempted to put Mal Michael in ahead of Bock because triple premiership player is a pretty big deal.

I’d probably also have Keiran Jack over Ben McGlynn, but not by much.

Best Essendon players off the Rookie List

B – Mark Johnson - Patrick Ambrose - Mark Baguley
HB – Conor McKenna Nathan Lovett-Murray - Michael Hibberd
C – Andrew Lovett - Dean Rioli - Ben Howlett
HF – Stewart Crameri - Shaun McKernan Will Snelling
F – Anthony McDonald-Tipungwuti -Courtney Johns - Gary Moorcroft
R – Sam Draper - Heath Hocking- Damien Pevrill
Int - Jarrod Atkinson - Jake Long - Ben Haynes - Corey McGrath

Left out Josh Jenkins, James Podsiadly, David Johnson as they had success with other clubs.

Hibberd wasn’t rookied. Was pre-season draft.

How the hell did you find a thread from 5 years ago to bump. I’m legit impressed!

HB – Conor McKenna Nathan Lovett-Murray - Jarrod Atkinson
C – Andrew Lovett - Dean Rioli - Ben Howlett
HF – Stewart Crameri - Shaun McKernan Will Snelling
F – Anthony McDonald-Tipungwuti -Courtney Johns - Gary Moorcroft
R – Sam Draper - Heath Hocking- Damien Pevrill
Int - Jake Long - Ben Haynes - Corey McGrath - Corey Dell Ollio

Sometimes down the bottom you get a weird selection of “Suggested Topic” threads. I’ve been caught before thinking “not this ■■■■ again” before realising it was a 3-4 year old thread

I wouldn’t. It was special circumstances.

You could only pick him on what he produced post rookie drafting.
Which wouldn’t be kind.
