PORT ADELAIDE 5.1 8.1 12.6 18.7 115 ADELAIDE 2.3 4.8 9.11 13.13 91 CROWD 49,735 at Adelaide Oval. 1 FREMANTLE LOCAL INTERSTATE AVE MARGIN P W L D STK FOR AGST % W L W L W L PU QW 1-50 IN FRONT 5 5 0 0 W5 482 319 151.1 3 0 2 0 33 0 25 14 52.6 85% 20 Their midfield has the best mix of big bodies and outside speed in the competition. And with Johnson and McPharlin, the latter defying father time, two of the best key defenders. 2 COLLINGWOOD LOCAL INTERSTATE AVE MARGIN P W L D STK FOR AGST % W L W L W L PU QW 1-50 IN FRONT 5 4 1 0 W3 478 324 147.5 3 1 1 0 45 27 27 14 60.6 66% 16 They must have felt they were in a training drill such was the lack of pressure. Cant wait to see them against one of the top dogs to find out how far they have come, but there is genuine excitement about Buckleys boys. 3 WESTERN BULLDOGS LOCAL INTERSTATE AVE MARGIN P W L D STK FOR AGST % W L W L W L PU QW 1-50 IN FRONT 5 4 1 0 W2 441 421 104.8 3 0 1 1 23 70 28 9 53.8 64% 16 They are what the competition needed. Was McCarthy that bad as a coach or is what we are seeing part of his development? They have rapidly become everyones second team with Murphy replacing Lenny Hayes as the most loved AFL player. 4 HAWTHORN LOCAL INTERSTATE AVE MARGIN P W L D STK FOR AGST % W L W L W L PU QW 1-50 IN FRONT 5 3 2 0 W1 547 365 149.9 2 1 1 1 64 5 28 14 63.6 59% 12 In a world of growing uncertainty its comforting to know that you can find sure things, one of them being that Hawthorn responds when necessary. The other is Mitchell belongs in the category of an AFL great. 5 WEST COAST EAGLES LOCAL INTERSTATE AVE MARGIN P W L D STK FOR AGST % W L W L W L PU QW 1-50 IN FRONT 5 3 2 0 W2 537 368 145.9 2 1 1 1 70 20 29 15 51.4 65% 12 Maybe we are finally starting to see something solid from this group. Their midfield has lacked depth but Yeo and Wellingham may be the answer. Now lets see them beat a contender. 6 SYDNEY SWANS LOCAL INTERSTATE AVE MARGIN P W L D STK FOR AGST % W L W L W L PU QW 1-50 IN FRONT 5 3 2 0 L2 408 345 118.3 2 1 1 1 27 9 25 13 54.8 39% 12 Mitchell showed why he should be playing regular senior football and Hannebery is on fire. But to lose at home, albeit to a spirited group, suggests they have some fine tuning to do. 7 ADELAIDE CROWS LOCAL INTERSTATE AVE MARGIN P W L D STK FOR AGST % W L W L W L PU QW 1-50 IN FRONT 5 3 2 0 L2 469 421 111.4 2 1 1 1 43 41 25 11 59.4 53% 12 Needed to respond and were stiff to lose Sloane. Proved they can match it with the cream but doubt they have enough of their own to be genuine contenders. 8 GWS GIANTS LOCAL INTERSTATE AVE MARGIN P W L D STK FOR AGST % W L W L W L PU QW 1-50 IN FRONT 5 3 2 0 L1 430 418 102.9 0 1 3 1 40 54 26 9 52.8 44% 12 Their chance to make a statement and they blew it horribly. Not getting nearly enough out of Griffen. You expect highs and lows with young sides but 87 points is unacceptable. 9 ESSENDON LOCAL INTERSTATE AVE MARGIN P W L D STK FOR AGST % W L W L W L PU QW 1-50 IN FRONT 5 3 2 0 W1 374 381 98.2 3 1 0 1 8 16 27 10 53.4 58% 12 Losing Daniher was massive in terms of structure but not sure if this outfit, so promising in the first few rounds, is a genuine top six contender. Ambrose from the ammos is a nice mover. 10 PORT ADELAIDE LOCAL INTERSTATE AVE MARGIN P W L D STK FOR AGST % W L W L W L PU QW 1-50 IN FRONT 5 3 2 0 W3 439 454 96.7 2 1 1 1 13 28 28 9 49 70% 12 Ryder and Schulz showed how it can work up forward, plus the value of straight kicking. Ports fitness levels ensure few teams will get them late in games. 11 RICHMOND LOCAL INTERSTATE AVE MARGIN P W L D STK FOR AGST % W L W L W L PU QW 1-50 IN FRONT 5 2 3 0 L2 435 389 111.8 1 3 1 0 53 20 32 11 53.2 37% 8 No question on their desire but a query on their plan B. They get scored against far too easily even while playing a couple behind the ball. Why wasnt Rance on Hawkins early? 12 NORTH MELBOURNE LOCAL INTERSTATE AVE MARGIN P W L D STK FOR AGST % W L W L W L PU QW 1-50 IN FRONT 5 2 3 0 L1 454 501 90.6 2 2 0 1 49 48 28 9 49.6 30% 8 They crave respect but will always be considered flaky while delivering performances like that against the big boys. Suspect they are a good side on their own terms and an average one under serious heat. 13 MELBOURNE LOCAL INTERSTATE AVE MARGIN P W L D STK FOR AGST % W L W L W L PU QW 1-50 IN FRONT 5 2 3 0 L1 359 439 81.8 2 1 0 2 29 46 28 9 42 50% 8 They have shown they can play four quarters so now its about consistency of effort and while playing a physically superior team, there were some unacceptable moments. 14 GEELONG CATS LOCAL INTERSTATE AVE MARGIN P W L D STK FOR AGST % W L W L W L PU QW 1-50 IN FRONT 5 2 3 0 W1 378 482 78.4 2 3 0 0 9 41 29 6 46.8 39% 8 Thurlows best game for the club and highlighted by his foot skills. They are always a chance given a defence that boasts Taylor, Rivers, Lonergan and Enright. Blicavs remains on the games great stories. 15 GOLD COAST SUNS LOCAL INTERSTATE AVE MARGIN P W L D STK FOR AGST % W L W L W L PU QW 1-50 IN FRONT 5 1 4 0 W1 432 497 86.9 1 1 0 3 64 32 32 8 53.6 33% 4 When Bennel decides to turn it on there are few better sights in the game. Maybe this team has taken time to adjust to a new and demanding coach although beating Brisbane at the minute doesnt count for too much. 16 ST KILDA LOCAL INTERSTATE AVE MARGIN P W L D STK FOR AGST % W L W L W L PU QW 1-50 IN FRONT 5 1 4 0 L3 409 506 80.8 0 3 1 1 28 31 30 7 48 50% 4 Sure, losing hurts, but in the overall scheme of things its more about showing they are on the right track in terms of development. Loved the game of Hickey and Billings just gets better each week. 17 CARLTON LOCAL INTERSTATE AVE MARGIN P W L D STK FOR AGST % W L W L W L PU QW 1-50 IN FRONT 5 1 4 0 L1 390 542 72 0 3 1 1 40 48 33 6 47 25% 4 If they wanted to make a statement for their coach then this was the opportunity. Or maybe they did by not trying because what they dished up was a load of uncompetitive tripe. 18 BRISBANE LIONS LOCAL INTERSTATE AVE MARGIN P W L D STK FOR AGST % W L W L W L PU QW 1-50 IN FRONT 5 0 5 0 L5 302 592 51 0 4 0 1 0 58 31 1 46.4 5% 0 The AFL is worried about them for good reason and will act, just as they did with Port Adelaide. Right now they are below the required standard of an AFL team and have at least five players who arent up to scratch.
