For the second time in six weeks, North Melbourne make a huge jump up
the rankings after recording a mammoth win. Last time they did this, the
Kangaroos returned from ‘whence
they came’ the very next week, losing to Gold Coast. Coincidentally, they
travel to Queensland again next week …
Carlton drop from 8th to 11th after getting well
beaten by Collingwood. This puts the Blues back closer to where they were at
the start of the season, both in terms of ranking and ranking points.
ALSO OF NOTE
I forgot to mention last week that one of the columns in my ‘spiffy’
new Power Rankings presentation, the change in ranking points over the past
five games is similar to the Mezzoculo
Index over at AFL Footy Maths. However, I can’t match the Mezzoculo Index
in terms of having aesthetically-pleasing bubbles.
