Charlie Parker a smokey for the Bulldogs. Mature age and impressing early including winning one of the running tests. We don’t really do competitive time trials like most clubs.
Never heard of him, what position does he play? Who is he putting out of the side? Wouldn't have thought the dog's will have space for many rookies next year.

He’s a tall hard running defender/winger. 24 I think but only been playing seriously in the SANFL for a year or so as he focused on cricket previously. Rourke Smith would be the obvious one but I agree it’s a tough team to crack. I said that last year and McNeil and Scott got plenty of games.

I try to do an early post on the North rookies available each year.
IMO we wont have as many playing this year if we dont have another injury plague.
Defence (most available spots for rookie of any line.)
1639532744565.png

Hayden - A massive unit fully developed AFL body. Wont score enough to be relevant.
Perez - Currently finishing up his rehab for a knee he did 2021 pre season. Back in full training after xmas. 50% chance for round 1.
McGuiness - 197cm skinny key back, great kick. Cover for Mckay, Corr and Walker. Might get games with injuries. 0% chance for round 1.
Palker - Played really well in the VFL late last year but couldn't force his way into the team. great kick hbf/wing 10% chance for round 1.
Archer - Training the house down. mid sized defender. 0% chance for round 1.
Bergman - 65kg 188cm. HBF/wing/HF great kick way to skinny for round 1 0% chance.

1639533294820.png

Horne. 100% chance for round 1. Plenty has been said already.
Lazzaro - Had no holidays trained flat out right through. Noticeably bigger. Wing most likely so wont be relevant IMO. 30% chance round 1.
Goater - Lightening quick. Earmarked to play defence. Good intercept mark. 30% chance of playing round 1.
1639533533537.png


Comben - Crazy competitive. Tall forward. Great VFL form late last year. I don't see how he fits in the team 10% chance to play round 1.
Edwards - To skinny for round 1 imo r/f 0% chance for round 1
1639533700310.png

Xerri - If Goldy gets injured he may be an option but he just wont make the team otherwise. 0% chance
Ford - Great young player but priced out of relevancy. 40% chance
Phoenix Spicer - Came in last year as a midget. Got a game late in the year. Has put on size. Wing/HF 0% chance.
Curtis - Medium forward who kicks goals, great pressure. There may be a spot in the team for his type round 1. 30% chance.

Anyways hope this helps peeps.

Big rookie watch in the Suns backline over preseason. Bowes and Luko moving up field leaves two gaps.

Jeffrey has been playing down back in training apparently. Thompson, McLennan, and Uwland all a chance at some stage too.
Has / Is Rory Thompson on the outer at GC ? .....I know he has had the injury, however he's largely disappeared in recent years

2 ACL's in a row I think. Hasn't played since 2018. He's the least preferred option of that list, but if fit he'll probably get the first go. Pretty poor scoring history though, but I don't think we'll have much choice down back.
