01. SIX IS BETTER THAN FOUR

A full round 1 over the 5 days of Easter in the bag, and the return in 6 from 9.
Not super impressive, but a better outcome than last years round 1 "haul" of 4 .

Missing out on Melbourne, the Bulldogs, and GWS meant three of last years bottom 5 of the AFL table and the FootyMaths rankings table scored wins.

One positional change in the rankings. Melbourne's great win scores them 12 more rank points, but GWS's win over St Kilda (along with a form carry-over from previous games) sees them rise one place over the Demons.

For the Saints, the loss to GWS sees a 4 point reduction, and they now sit 108 points adrift at the foot of the table, and also just a touch over being half the level of of Hawthorn on the top of the table.

  1. I got six too, but picked Melbourne and missed on Collingwood.
