    Re: Midfield Rookies

    Haven't seen much talk of Macaffer. At $174k in SC he is close to a viable "rookie" option given the apparent lack of obvious starters in the based priced bracket in the MIDs. Played the last 4 games (plus one final) in the VFL last year at an average of 91dt. Take out his come back game and he averaged 100, with the last two games 118 and 110. Can't see him tagging as much with Greenwood now taking that role but equally he probably wont get midfield time so take those VFL numbers with a grain of salt. However, with Jamie Elliot out for an extended period, you'd think there'd be some opportunities for Caff up forward. Scored 55dt/53sc from 54 mins in NAB2 v the Cats. Not sure where he was playing predominantly but had 6 tackles and kicked a goal.

    Re: Midfield Rookies

    Caff is absolutely on my radar. His best scoring was as a forward anyway so that's probably a bonus if he is playing there.

    He's one of those guys I'd rather not have to pick but he feels pretty safe if I do and is probably worth the premium.

    Still fairly confident one of Keays/Mathieson/Jansen plays round 1 in that open spot, but it's still hard to call.
    Had an injury which kept him out of training for 3-4 weeks but Robertson had been killing it in the pre season so I'd suspect he'd be pushing very hard for selection.

    Would think the above get it based on what they do in the next couple of games.

    Who Jansen? He played NAB 1, has he had a knock or niggle since then? I can't see anything about anywhere.

    Mills from the Swans has played well in both NAB games, if he keeps it up I'm assuming he will be ready for round 1. It seems he has made that half back role his at the moment.

    Re: Midfield Rookies

    Caff will be playing that high half forward role from everything I've seen so far this preseason. Pretty sure that's what he has said himself when asked if his tagging days are over which he all but confirmed.
    Leadership group naming pretty much points to playing more often than not you would think & historically has seemed pretty safe in the 22 whenever fit anyway so definitely one I'm keeping in mind.

    Reasonably good news on Menagola. Becomes a handy downgrade target.

    Re: Midfield Rookies

    SCANS have revealed that Rhys Mathieson has fractured his right cheekbone after a receiving a high bump in the Brisbane Lions’ final NAB Challenge game against the GIANTS.

    Mathieson will see a surgeon later today to investigate whether or not he will need surgery.

    Midfield rookies getting scarcer by the day.

    Might have to fork out the extra cash to get Oliver along with Mills - they are about the only 2 I trust enough to start, Davis I would prefer to have on the bench personally.

    Re: Midfield Rookies

    Thinking along the same lines Bunga with Olvier, I wonder however if that opens a sneaky door for Keays to play again round 1. The Lions 22 is quite unsettled, team sheets should be interesting.

    Re: Midfield Rookies

    Finding cheap bench rookies other than the backs is getting hard, I don't mind paying a bit extra for my starting rookies but don't want 160k+ guys on the bench.

    Reckon we'll have to have a mid/fwd in the mids and a bac/fwd in the forwards with their being so many cheap back rookies.

    Yeah, I have Kerridge in mids and Tippa in forwards.
    This post was more than likely SC based.
    If in doubt, assume it was.

    Any chance this opens the door for Keays?

    Just quietly Gresham put up 53 DT from 38% TOG against the Dees. We really need him to nail a spot round 1.
