GWS haven't played the Perth teams yet, so they will likely be sent to the WA hub for a few weeks. Probably unlikely that WC and Freo will be sent back to the east coast again to play the Giants.I like Brisbane and GWS's chances given that they're bound to get a heap of home games for much of the rest of the season and that should be a big advantage.
Each to their own, but I'd say the complete opposite - our ceiling is well good enough to win a premiership. It's the unknown of if we have the big moment players, the ability to withstand 4 qtr finals pressure and the smarts to find a "plan B" at short notice (GWS forward entries in 4th quarter last year).Brisbane are playing well but I don't think their ceiling as a team is high enough, once finals come around.
I reckon it's between West Coast, GWS and Bulldogs.
Not sure the Tiges can do it this year
