I saw this website posted on BigFooty:

They’ve got the ladder looking like this:

  1. Melbourne Demons (up 4 places)
  2. Richmond Tigers (down 1 place)
  3. Collingwood Magpies (no change)
  4. West Coast Eagles (down 2 places)
  5. Adelaide Crows (up 7 places)
  6. Essendon Bombers (up 5 places)
  7. Greater Western Sydney Giants (no change)
  8. Geelong Cats (no change)
  9. Hawthorn Hawks (down 5 places)
  10. North Melbourne Kangaroos (down 1 place)
  11. Western Bulldogs (up 2 places)
  12. Sydney Swans (down 6 places)
  13. Brisbane Lions (up 2 places)
  14. Fremantle Dockers (no change)
  15. Port Adelaide (down 5 places)
  16. Carlton Blues (up 2 places)
  17. St Kilda Saints (down 1 place)
  18. Gold Coast Suns (down 1 place)

They’ve also got detailed club by club analysis which was interesting to read. I think we’ll be between 6th - 10th. The preseason has me uncertain now. Bring on Sunday week …
