Earlier this year
Premier League Power Rankings Round 16
We have some changes!!
1. Forestville Eagles
Look out League! The eagles put up 133 on the weekend despite the 36ers captain sitting out. With him back this week I actually favour them against the Tigers this weekend. DJ is the best player in Australia right now, Doyle the best PG in the league and Harris an elite shooter. Hard to see them losing now.
2. Norwood Flames
Tough to knock off the top team and not get #1 but Forestville have just been too dominant and Norwood a little too inconsistent recently. McGriff firming as a true MVP candidate. With big wins over West and Southern this year they'll be feeling good heading into finals.
3. Southern Tigers
And the vulnerability has been exposed. A clever Norwood team showed the blue print for beating the Tiger. Truth be told I’m not sure they have been at their best for a while and this might be the best thing for them in the end. Interesting how they respond with games against Forestville and West to come.
4. West Adelaide
Handled business short handed on the weekend. Will be looking forward to having a free hit at Southern and possibly the number 1 seed in round 18. A full roster would look scary to other teams in finals.
5 North Adelaide
Took care of Eastern in what was an ugly game. Have shown flashes of being able to compete with the top teams but not consistently enough.
Teams 6-10 are largely irrelevant now and continue to beat each other but fall short of the top 5 teams. They will have one eye on 2019 already.
Can’t wait for finals in a couple of weeks!
