25. STRAIGHT OUTTA...

So, in the mad rush to publish the results of last week (late as they were), the current standings table was not included.
So before this weeks footy, here are the rankings, tabled.
RANKINGSPre:R 25
TEAMPTSΔPTSΔRK
1Hawthorn1480-16-
2West Coast143312-
3Sydney/SMFC1298-2-

14St Kilda8470-
15Melbourne8430-
16Gold Coast8370-
17Carlton8040-
18Brisbane Lions7830-

The Bulldogs slip back to 10th and will finish there, while the other eliminated team Richmond hold 4th and will more than likely remain there.
Adelaide the big movers up to 5th, but again now as all year, the gap between 5th and 8th is only 13 points. A big loss could see them move right down.


So, the Semi Final tips are:
HOMEAWAYVENUEPREDICTED RESULT
SFSydney/SMFC18v-5North MelbourneStadSydney/SMFCby20pts
SFHawthorn-25v44AdelaideMCGHawthornby37pts

And as most would be tipping, the top 4 teams to defeat those who finished outside the top 4.

What is interesting is the form index, with Adelaide having the best form against Hawthorn the worst coming into this weekend.
Will it be enough to give Hawthorn a second loss in a row, something not done by the since rounds 4 and 5 of 2012? 

Can it be...
