Was it only the 2 draftees from last year to debut in Fish and Schoenberg? Would think Worrell, O’Connor, Hinge and Hately would be closer than a few of 2020 drafties so could be hard.
Having said that,
R.1 - 1 Rowe
R.6 - 2 Thilthorpe
R.12 3 Pedlar
R.18 -
Season end total = 3

Every top pick from those drafts has played R1 following year.
Murphy was an outlier, pick 38 in rookie draft played R1 following year.
Schoenberg (pick 24) was the only other draftee to play the following year, debut in R10.
The rest of the 17/18 crop debuted in 2020.
Those 21 players plus McAdam, Frampton, Keays and Hately (25 in total) make up more than half our list.
By my count, only 5 players from the 26 players drafted in that period are no longer on our list. Of them, only CEY is at another club, the rest didn't make the cut.

Rowe was pick 38 in the ND, Murphy was pick 38 in the RD. It's the lucky number for a R1 debut!
 

Betts are off

Including the 2019 crop who have yet to debut.

R1: 3 (Rowe, Thilthorpe, Gollant*)
R6: 4 (+ Berry)
R12: 6 (+ O'Connor#, Borlase#)
R18: 8 (+ Cook, Pedlar).

*A puff piece in early-to-mid January, and he also attracted attention last year for an outstanding pre-season. It seems like his stocks are continuously rising at the club.

# I reckon these two will get a gig due to injuries at some point, though both do seem like odd men out at the moment.

Thanks, Just letting you know the Gollant and O'Conner selections wont count in your selections. But I don't have a problem with you putting them in there for fun.
