I was having this discussion with houdinihuddo the other day.

We were discussing the list, and whether James Cousins would now be elevated after Tom's injury.

He is listed a s a rookie here...

However, I found the article I remembered reading last year...

http://www.hawthornfc.com.au/news/2018-10-30/hawks-make-final-list-changes

If he is still a rookie, it leaves us with only 37 on the senior list ... http://www.hawthornfc.com.au/football/players-and-coaches/senior ... and a team MUST have at least 38.

Can anyone clarify?

Senior listed last year was my recollection. I wouldn’t go off the player lists ;)

Nor would I, except for the fact that for a while, even after the elevations were announced last year, Mirra, Glass and Cousin were still listed on the rookie list for a few weeks.

Then, all of a sudden, Glass and Mirra are listed on the senior list...but Cousins remains listed as a rookie.

I suspect it's wrong too, but it's pretty odd

Wasn't he given a 2 year extension on the rookie list in 2017? Can't recall him being moved to the senior list or it being announced?

Senior listed. Also we never upgrade a rookie for an injury unless they are selected to play that week. why upgrade a midfielder now to play in the 2's and then when a key position or ruck rookie earns a game through form or injury there is no spot to elevate.

Rookie listed or not this is a great opportunity for Cousins who’s now in his third season on the list to stake his claim as a potential best 22 player. Depending on how his pre-season form goes he could be in the mix for Round 1. If he can play 10+ games this year that would be a pass mark.

May need to use him as a tagger at a minimum. Destroyed Z Merrett in our first meeting. Bloke had 40 the next time we met and nearly got em over the line.
