Premier League Round 4 Power Rankings
1. Norwood Flames (4-0)
Impressive win over North on the weekend. Home court no doubt an advantage in that one. Veteran group so early season wins no surprise. May not have championship upside but will always be tough.
2. Forestville Eagles (3-0)
Put up huge numbers again. Have all the offensive weapons but can they defend? Yet to find out but I'm sure we will on the weekend against North.
3. North Adelaide (2-1)
Hard to drop them far after losing by 1 in an away game to an established side. Once they all click I dare say this could be as low as they go for the season! Some down games by their stars on the weekend but will no doubt click soon.
4. West Adelaide (3-0)
Two easy wins on the weekend vs mediocre opposition. All top 5 teams would expect to beat South and Sturt. Imports showing they're very solid, if not spectacular.
5. Mt Gambier (2-1)
Good first up home win. Tom Daly showing he's still a class above the league with a 40 point 8 assist outing. Depth could test them later and jury out on imports still.
6. Eastern Mavericks (1-2)
That's right - Mavs up to 6th. Not just a win but a big win from wire to wire. Imports proving to be a handful and actually had some contributions off the bench. Could this be the beginning of the revival?
7. Central District Lions (1-1)
Could 't stop Forestvilles offensive barrage but no one has yet. Young group who will take some time to fully gel but the upside is there.
8. Southern Tigers (0-2)
By the looks an improved effort on the previous week but still question marks over their second halves. Drmic and Turnage look to be clicking well but will need more contributors.
9.South Adelaide Panthers (0-2)
Took their lumps again against a top 5 team but to be expected from a young group. Will look to turn it around against a hapless Woodville this week.
10. Sturt Sabres (0-4)
Have been competitive the past two games after getting blown out in week 1s double. Not sure they taking teams best hits as West appeared to take it easy on them on the back end of a double header, as North did the week before.
11. Woodville Warriors (0-3)
Would have expected to be 2-1 by now. The Centrals loss was excusable but by 17 to Mavs is cause for alarm bells. Odds on to be the first club to replace an import this season as both are under performing and the season could slip away quickly.
