Majority of our rookies scored well in Round 5 with many pulling out big scores. Adam Oxley was incredible on Friday night with 148 almost matching Patrick Cripps score of 172 from last week a score I saw no rookie getting close to. Cam Ellis-Yolmen scored 99 just 1 point off 100 and two Gold Coast players Adam Saad and Touk Miller scored 85 and 105 respectively. Jack Lonie was also solid with his 86.
Joshua Glenn: I didn’t mention this kid above for a reason, he deserves a special mention. Glenn really defined the article name ‘New Kids On The Block’ on the weekend with a huge debut score of 103! I will definitely be trading Glenn in after this round because he is gonna make so much cash. Don’t expect him to score like this every week but definitely have him on your radar as a downgrade option and make sure not to miss out if he keeps this up.
Daniel McKenzie: The young Saints defender started off his SuperCoach career with a solid 63. He’s another option for owners who still have Brett Goodes (who if you haven’t got rid of I highly recommend doing). McKenzie isn’t very expensive at $117,300 and he could add handy Def/Mid flexibility if needed. I’d watch another game of McKenzie to get a better idea of how he will score.
Kyle Langford: The number 17 pick in the 2014 Draft made his debut for the Bombers on the weekend and did average SuperCoach wise. He only scored 44 and did admit he did some first game jitters following the game. At $142,300 he is quite cheap which is a positive but I don’t think he’ll be a high scorer but keep your eye on him.
Liam Duggan: I have to admit Duggan disappointed me the first few rounds as he was quite hyped up coming into his debut after strong WAFL performances and didn’t do outstanding but well this week he showed what he was all about! He scored a nice 75 which has put his break even down to -12 allowing the small 0.9% who own him to know that they will have some cash generated by him in the coming weeks.
