West Coast young gun Harley Reid has moved up two places in our Rookie Rankings after Gather Round, going ahead of two Demons to sit second overall.

The weekend's results have seen some movement among our top five, with Reid's impressive afternoon at Mt Barker forcing some change near the top.

Perhaps the biggest talking point from the weekend surrounding eligible rookies is Gold Coast draftee Sam Clohesy, who had arguably the most impressive debut game we've seen this year.

Clohesy recorded 22 disposals, eight marks, 489 metres gained, five inside 50s, four score involvements and four intercept possessions across half-back and on the wing.

Western Bulldogs youngster Ryley Sanders also gets an honourable mention from Round 4, with the Pick 6 selection not far from breaking into our top five.

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. 

Round 4 Honourable Mentions:
Sam Clohesy (Gold Coast)
Will Graham (Gold Coast)
Ryley Sanders (Western Bulldogs)
Darcy Wilson (St Kilda)


5. Seth Campbell (-)

The Tigers forward played a role higher up the field at Norwood as Adem Yze looked to use Campbell's link-up play around the ball on the smaller field.

Campbell came away from Sunday's loss with 18 disposals, two goal assists and almost 400 metres gained at The Parade to further impress in his strong start to the season.

With the likes of Ryley Sanders and Harvey Thomas among those on the fringes of our Rookie Rankings, Campbell could need a big performance in Round 5 against West Coast to hold his place in our top five before Richmond's scheduled bye.
