    2013 West Coast rookie pick 22 - Rowen Powell from Broome


    22. Rowen Powell - Claremont (tall defender, 193cm, 83kg)


    A tall versatile defender who can play both deep and high in defence. He is very consistent, good overhead, and very good one on one. Powell can run off his opponent as well and has shown reasonable endurance. Reads the play well and shows not only the ability to win the ball back, but also to run to space and create counter attack. He averaged 13 disposals on his way to playing in a Claremont colts premiership this year.
