So a club can have up to 6 rookies and 2 Cat B rookies ( Or at least 1 rookie)
So you could have 36 primary list players, 6 rookies and 2 Cat B rookies (44)
I’d like to see our rookies like Bakes and Marlion upgrade to the senior list and utilise the rookie list again as we have done so well from it.
I'd be surprised if we don't push towards that.
We currently have 33 I think (assuming Rance comes off) on the main list, so we have to add at least 3 (that assumes we maintain Garthwaite and Miller on the main list). We could probably rookie 1 or 2 of those and reduce our main list to 31. Add Bakes and Marlion to the main list, and then we need to take 3 in the draft (1st 2 picks and MRJ hopefully), leaving us with 36 on the main list.
Not sure when Colina is added to our list, might not be until 2022, but if we do the above and maybe re-rookie Miller, then we will have 5 on the rookie list (assume we keep Egg) so depending on what we do, we may not have a rookie spot but I agree with your thoughts, especially being as there will be some high reward but risky picks that won't be picked up in the ND this year so it could work out really well for us.
