Debutantes are usually signalled during the week and get a big hoo ha ceremony. ESPECIALLY round 1 ones

You'll know who's playing Sunday very likely by Thursday-ish
Some team like port are very good at naming their sides early esp rookies.

Not all teams will say theirs 3 wookies playing etc.

But hopefully we'll know early enough .

You can bet on it that you'll have all the rookie signals you'll need for round 1 long before the actual teams are announced.

Faimilies need to be informed to come and watch their kid playing their first game from Interstate and word travels very fast etc etc

Plus Bigfooty is the bastion of all AFL knowledge outside of the AFL inner sanctums

You'll be fine

Not sure what douchey site you're using, but I would suggest avoiding it since they can't do a simple fact check



Very confused as to how they interpreted 8 behinds for East Perth as as 8 games for the Eagles, but here we are

Absolute amateur hour

Matthew Lloyd -
Nik Cox (Essendon)

“Pencil him in to play on a wing this year - Round 1 - and then develop into a key position player.

“He’s the one of the three (first-round picks) that the Bombers expect to play nice and early.”
Locked in as my D6.

Smell ya later DGB and Chapman.

Similar to Archie Perkins, similar role ......looking at his junior tapes, he's very impressive .....great mark

Apparently he dropped in the Draft due to inconsistency of effort as a main reason
And not being from one of the "cool" TAC cup teams or plaything for a private school.

Scuba forgot to mention that Nik Cox reminds him of a cross between Judd and Goodes and is the most exciting prospect since Franklin.

Still, we've got nothing.
So
In: Nik the Dik
Out: DGB

Cal Twomey quick notes:

Harrison Jones: big chance for rd 1
Finlay Macrae: likely rd 1
Lachie Jones: impressive, but no spot(?)
NM: Powell earlier than Phillios
Braeden Campbell: a chance but not immediate
Heath Chapman: logjam, but has impressed
Highmore (role?): injuries might help his cause
Durdin, Chugg have impressed, genuine rd 1 chances
Sampson Ryan (Ric, RUC) has impressed, might get a chance (but likely not that early)
Grainger-Barass was in b side, outplayed by O'Brien
Thilthorpe nursed through preseason
Pedlar cautiously built up
Cox, Perkins, Reid: Cox v good in scratch match, Perkins had had an ankle, little behind but rounding into form
Rowe: going well but has a few in front of him
Brockman (Haw, small forward): a chance
Gould: not a lot heard about being in early mix
RCD: not a walk-up start, where vs Ross, Dow, Ralphsmith?
Bergman: wraps, but no spot currently
Mead: No spot
Flynn: Likely Mummy preferred early
Just RE: Sampson Ryan, if he's going to get games this year I would expect it to be sooner and not later.
Dimma prefers to play two rucks, Soldo is dead for most of if not all of the season.
CCJ is suspended.
I reckon Chol is a squib.
Could use Balta as a chop out? Other than that it could be Ryan's spot to take, doubt it's worth picking ahead of Flynn anyways.

Think we can add beau mcreery to the rookie chart from the pies
Lots on their board saying he plays round 1
They need a small crumbing pressure forward and it seems he’s had a ripper pre season

may not score well but another 117k rookie forward well in the mix

The fact he played a full 2020 season is massive for him. Scanning the Pies threads there aint much talk about him. More about Macrae, Bianco and Rantal. Who the F knows. Its all a guessing game at this point. Still fun though.
