18. THREE QUARTER TIME

A very short post this week...


Another quarter of the season gone by the wayside, and another leading effort from Essendon as they rebuild back to a normal level post-WADA drug bans.
Also making hay while the (winter) sun shines were the two cellar dwellars, Carlton and Brisbane.
At the other end of the spectrum, the Dogs went into hibernation, while the Giants and the Kangaroos also were sluggish, to say the least.


The Wash-up

Seven for the week, which is about right given the huge turnaround by the Saints form from the week before, and that the Sydney derby was predicted to be a close one and the coin flipped to the other side for a just over 2 goal win the the Swans.

Also from a head to head match-up, GWS went down 2 places, with Sydney going up two places.
