Round 6 is done and dusted and we’re at that time of year when we have seen enough football to have a more accurate view on what may be ahead for the rest of the year.
As it stands West Coast sit on top of the ladder and remain the only team to go undefeated in 2012 but will their key injuries slow them down as the season drags on?
There have been plenty of surprises though. Not many people would have thought Sydney, Essendon & Adelaide would have joined Carlton and West Coast in the top 5 after 6 rounds and only have 1 defeat to their name.
Last years Grand Finalists in Collingwood and Geelong have had a shaky start to the year along with this years Premiership favourites in Hawthorn. What can we expect from them in the rounds to come? With so many sides gunning for a top 4 position who’s likely to miss out?
GWS and the Gold Coast Suns have been playing some good football and neither look far from winning a game, in round 7 these two teams will meet in Canberra – will the Suns kids with a year under their belt get the job done without a number of their matured players or will it be the Giants who register their first win in their history?
