The Sydney Swans finally break Hawthorn’s 32-round stretch in the #1
spot. The Swans’ comfortable win against
the Eagles in Perth, coupled with the Hawks’ struggle to beat the lowly-ranked
Bulldogs, means that the 2012 premiers are now the Power Rankings’ favourites
for this year’s flag.
Meanwhile, while Hawthorn are hardly in trouble, it has gone off the
boil a bit over its past five matches, losing more ranking points than any
other team. West Coast also takes a hit, dropping down two places to 10th
ALSO OF NOTE
Seven of the top nine ranked teams are Victorian, with only Sydney and
Fremantle breaking up the Vics’ dominance.
