Our AFL Rookie Rankings have seen a change ato the podium after Round 13, while a young Brisbane forward has broken into the top seven for the first time this year.

He replaces outgoing Magpies midfielder Lachie Sullivan and lands at sixth in our rankings, pushing a young Hawks tall down one place.

Tigers pair Kane McAuliffe and Seth Campbell have both earned honourable mentions for their efforts in Thursday's win over Adelaide, while Crows debutant Billy Dowling also gets a nod for his performance in the same game.

Selection Criteria: For our Rookie Rankings, we are ONLY selecting players who have made their debut this season.

Other players who may still be eligible for a Rising Star nomination but have already made their debut before the 2024 season will not be considered. I.e. Rising Star eligible players such as George Wardlaw, Angus Sheldrick and Sam Darcy are ineligible, having already played an AFL match before Round 1, 2024. 

Honourable Mentions:
Kane McAuliffe (Richmond)
Billy Dowling (Adelaide)
Seth Campbell (Richmond)

6. Logan Morris (NEW)

The Lions youngster has held his spot in Chris Fagan's side since a last-minute QClash debut in Round 8 that followed a VFL appearance the same day for Brisbane.

Since then, the Werribee Districts product has been a consistent contributor in the front half of the field, booting eight goals in five games while also averaging five score involvements in each outing.

Friday's performance against the Western Bulldogs was arguably Morris' best at the top level, recording 12 disposals, five marks, one goal, two goal assists, six score involvements and seven contested possessions in the win.

The performance not only sees Morris replace Magpie Lachie Sullivan in our top seven, but moves him ahead of Calsher Dear following Round 13.

The Lions head back to the Gabba this week to host St Kilda on Friday night as they look to break back into premiership contention.
