Freo being shown up as top 4 pretenders, we look more deserving of top 4 than them but like most teams they have an easier fixture than we do.

Put Ben King back into this Suns team and they are definitely Top 8 material, they may even make it this year

I'm sensing our team is growing with the challenge ... we're never going to get kissed on the knob with fixturing, so we might as well use it to our advantage, and just go win at GMHBA, Adelaide Oval, the Gabba, etc., and just take a "No prisoners, no surrender, no f**ks given" mindset to it all.

Suns with Witts are a different side. He's easily their most important player. I rate him up with the absolute best rucks in footy and a big tough leader to bring the kids along behind.
It’s funny how we talk about rucks sometimes being over rated but it swings the other way. We forget how impactful a properly good ruck is.

I have him in my Supercoach team, he's a gun, probably the 3rd best ruckman behind Gawn and Ryder.

I honestly think that Freo are the most overrated team in the comp at the moment right now (Carlton a close second)

For example, Freo have the following

Wins: 6th, 7th, 14th, 15th, 16th, 17th, 18th (yes that is correct 5 of their 7 wins have come against the 5 bottom teams)
Lost: 5th, 12th

In saying that their win against 6th placed Carlton doesn't inspire too much confidence as Carlton are a bit the same not having beaten a top 8 team this year except for an underdone Richmond whom if they played now would easily beat them IMO

Hopefully the Giants can overrun Carlton in the last quarter, they really should be winning this game but they are making hard work of it.
