Rookie Upgrades (and other rookie info)
Great news for those thinking about Ed Curnow, Stewart Crameri, Nick Lower and Jarrad Irons earmarked as being upgraded to the primary list for their respective clubs. Port also give us a look at some round one debutantes.
The following rookies have been elevated for their respective clubs. This doesn’t guarantee them games, but they’re one step closer to be selected.
- Carlton: Ed Curnow (MID $96,400)
- Essendon: Stewart Crameri (MID $166,700)
- Fremantle: Nick Lower (DEF $92,500)
- Hawthorn: Riley Milne (DEF $92,500)
- Melbourne: Michael Newton (FWD $210,700)
- Richmond: Brad Miller (FWD $211,800)
- NOTE: Hawthorn picked Paul Johnson for their rookie list.
Curnow, Crameri and Lower are the guys to consider. Lower should pretty much be locked on your backline bench. He has had a smashing preseason averaging over 80 Dream Team points. Curnow is a chance for the Blues and while Cremari is a bit more expensive, but he has been impressive for the Bombers.
The Power haven’t confirmed it as yet, but Jarrad Irons (MID $80,400) will be upgraded to the primary list. Jasper Pittard (MID $97,600), Cameron O’Shea (MID $92,500) and Irons are all named up as a chance to play round one.
Our friend Chad brought this quote from Brad Scott to our attention: “Over the weekend, Cam Richardson was terrific. He might not have gotten a game if Greenwood and Bastinac were available.” OUCH! But Bastinac is listed as ‘indefinite’ and Greenwood as ‘5-6 weeks’ with his ankle.
