Rookie Cheat Sheet – 2022

Published by Statty Matty on

G’day JR community, and welcome to the first cheat sheet of the year.

It’s rookie time! It seems many of the SC people on the interwebs are lamenting how similar their teams are amongst their premo and mid-pricers (with a few notable exceptions), but we all know the rookies are the key to success in SC. Generate cash and score some points … warm bodies on the field and the bench will bring big scores later in the season.

Obviously these recommendations are dependent on these players actually getting named. So make sure you check the team announcements closer to the games.

Good luck this year everyone, as long as you don’t beat me.

Geez.

I can’t decide if I lock in Patty Cripps or Trealor with a make up of Baldwin/Long/MacDonald etc or Berry and get in Gibcus & Xerri or Brodie

TRIGGA HAPPY

Spot for u in the happy place mate
League code: 961808

Lekdog

My heart says Cripps is a better pick than Treloar…but I’m not picking either

Shake n bake

Soligo $ rachele both will play

TRIGGA HAPPY

Hope so shakes need a couple on the mid bench to out up their hand.

TRIGGA HAPPY

bang on again mate
both just been confirmed as starters

Lekdog

Not sure I trust Soligo’s spot to start him, will look to corrective trade in Round 3 if he’s still in the side

Patty

I’m nervous about all these rookies I wouldn’t be surprised if Martin isn’t named to throw a spanner in the works!

Who is the better option please..
Parish vs Brayshaw

TRIGGA HAPPY

Wouldn’t surprise at all if Martin doesn’t get a gig rd 1. They named Baldwin yesterday to debut if Martin was a certainty would have named his as well.. may very well be the sub. Stringer to come back as well.

Patty

I think your right Trigga.
Can U get your thoughts on Brayshaw or parish for my M3 spot ?

TRIGGA HAPPY

Can’t go wrong with either. Upward trajectory for both of them. 👍

Lekdog

Brayshaw I think, similar output and cheaper

Jacko

any spare leagues, would love to join one

Check Paul’s post in the Rate my Team 3 thread Jacko, multiple leagues there.

Corey Durdin $143,700 Goal Kicking small fwd unanimously regarded by his team mates as the hardest to tackle and the hardest tackle to break. kicked 2 goals in aami 1st half before a precautionary rest due to a kick in the calf. Scored at 1p/pm until being rested

Russty_

Yeah I’ve got him on my bench too, so it was a kick in the calf and not an actual calf strain? He looks like a little live wire, should be decent backup

Kat

I’ve got Durdin on the bench as well, hoping he is OK injury wise. At least he doesn’t cost a fortune

FearTheBeard

English & J Crisp or Gawn & Hewett?

Big Tackle

Gawn & Hewett

The G Train

English and crisp imo. Both will be keepers (English in the fwd line) unlike Hewett

Maverick

I like crisp and English FTB. You’ve got Two keepers there and think they’ll match gawn and Hewetts points.

sully

I’ve got a few queries community and would love your opinion.
mcgovern or brodie
Cripps or Rowell
Ralphsmith or Alex Davies
Also how confident is everyone in Jarrod Berry? I’ve got him in but just not too sure if he is going to be an absolute must have like it seems
thanks in advance 🙂

FearTheBeard

I went Brodie, Rowell. Neither.

I have Berry but weighing up him or Chapman make way right now so I can get 1 more premium. Though I’m no guru lol.

sully

Feel like Berry is safer than chapman, although in saying that there’s probably a better downgrade option in the midfield compared to the defence. (this is without looking at your side)

sully

Interesting to see the phantom has jake bowey in his side over chapman any merit to this?

K.Sinny

Hey community would love some feedback on my current team!
Short, Whitfield, Ridley, Hewett, Sinn, McCartin, O’Driscoll, De Koning
Macrae, Steele, Miller, Neale, Rowell, JHF, Daicos, Ward, D.Stephens, MacDonald, Hough

Josh

Stef Martin out makes me tempted to swap Treloar for English. Do I flick the switch?!

Derek

did you?

Josh

Sadly not. Hindsight is a wonderful thing

demonsdelight

it was tough for me as i wanted to keep Butters but swapping out Ward JHF and Rachele got me English After all derek thats what those players are there for Losing LLOYD and a forced switch to Whitfield sealed the deal Pretty happy to have ENGLISH BUTTERS and Whitfield for Lloyd and a bunch of highpriced debuting rookies It’s funny I have never been a fan of those 3 mainly due to their injury history and English has improved enormously AS i said happy enough

Dingus

Hi all, once again I’m waaay late to the party…🤦‍♂️
Just want to say thanks so much for the rookie cheat sheet, saved my ass!!🏆
Looking forward to getting whooped by the JR family 😁

Nathan

Chapman or Bowey?
Also is English worth a look at if he’s number 1 Ruck could end up being a top 6 fwd?

TRIGGA HAPPY

With Fyfe out does this open the door for o’driscoll?
C’mon Justin ya know ya wanna.
Probably Earmus but

holty01

Think more so for Brodie. They need a big body in the mids with no Fyfe.

TRIGGA HAPPY

Geez with all the cheap rooks appearing in rd 1 mead and owies a nice bonus dont think we need the 3 big boys on deck. Cull one save $$. McDonald or Mead could be on deck. 😉
