They certainly seem to play alot harder than in previous years. Lots more hard nuts.
That could be the most interesting aspect of this. The Suns have spent the last five years rebuilding their list while the Giants have spent the last five years trying to strike while their premiership window was open. Now it would appear the Suns may be about to enter a finals/premiership window of their own while the Giants look to have had their premiership window shut as of this year. The old switcheroo.Amazing how they seemingly have gone past the Giants (which is a reflection on how rubbish Leon Cameron was as coach)
Still got guns to come back too like King and Flanders (Ned is going to be a very good player)
Can beat anyone now. First time you could ever say that
So they didn't take Melbourne to the line? Didn't beat Carlton and Freo? Sydney in Sydney?They flogged Hawthorn. And are on 5 wins from 11 games. They will smash the Roos this weekend but still have some tough teams in the run home and should end on 12 or 13 wins. Which means 9 or 10 losses. So I'd say they cant beat anyone.

I'd say on their day they can.
Playing up in the NT is a different kettle of fish. I guess when it’s a dry deck is when we struggle.On the day Hawthorn beat Brisbane and came close to Melbourne. I would think the point is consistency. I'd have no confidence in GCS beating Melbourne, Brisbane, Freo or St Kilda in a final.
We might even be a chance against Geelong at Metricon but I can understand why you didn't include them. Essendon made finals outright last year with 11 wins so if that were to be the case again this year then we would only need to win 5 of our remaining 10 games this season and as you've pointed out we play 18th, 17th, 16th, 14th and 13th over the next 10 weeks. We also play 12th, 11th and 9th. Clearly we have the kind of draw you want to make the finals and if we win the games we should win (based on current ladder positions) then we will play finals this season.Growing chance they could be going into the last round v NM knowing a win gets them to the finals. 6 wins now with likely wins against Crows (h), nth(a), wc(h), NM (a), haw (a), and with a realistic chance against Collingwood (h), rich (h), ess (a)
THIS is the game that will answer a lot of questions. We've historically been really poor after the bye and we've rarely been in a position of being such big favourites against a team like Adelaide ($1.23 favourites at the moment). We win today and the doubters will have a lot less reason to question us.
Ranked 1st in the league in goal assists.Did exactly what they needed to today.
Shame to have lost Powell who has had a really good season to date.
Another great game from Noah Anderson, but the one I thought really stood out was Rankine; 17 touches, 3 goals and gave a couple more away - very constructive but probably should have had a bag of 5, missed two or three set shots.
Finals on the horizon.
