Ok, last week it was the Cats, Saints, Bulldogs and Hawks looking safe. This week I’ll drop the Hawks from that list. Yeah they’ll probably make it, but they were beaten pretty easily by the Crows and so they can go into the list fighting for the 8. But the Kangaroos are gone.
So that’s keeps it at eight teams but now they’re fighting for five spots: Hawks, Carlton, Lions, Port, Pies, Crows, Swans and the Bombers.
Carlton and the Lions are the only ones of the eight teams with a percentage over 100, and they play each other this week. The Crows and Bombers have the worst percentage of the eight teams, and they play each other this week. So expect to hear the phrase “8 point game” mentioned a few times.
