AFL 2011 Power Rankings – Round 2 – Saints,Dees drop

Week 2 of Luke’s Power rankings are in and there is some movement in the ranks. Is it enough for your liking?

.

Collingwood 1 <NO CHANGE> Summary: The Pies are fast moving into the "Scary-good" stage.

.

Despite being a Carlton supporter, I have to declare an admiration for the way the Pies go about their footy. Try finding a weakness in their 22. Sure, they've beaten up on two teams that were not expected to do anything in 2011, but they have methodically destroyed both the Power and Roos in successive weeks. If they dismantle the Blues next round, I'm almost calling curtains on this season already.

.

Stat line: Put simply, the Pies have belted their first 2 opponents, averaging a league-high 149 points per contest.

.

.

Bulldogs 2 <NO CHANGE> Summary: A welcome return to form for the Doggies.

.

The Dogs needed to respond on the weekend – and they did. It may have just been the Lions, who were missing several key players, but a win is a win. With the Gold Coast Suns coming up in Round 3, the Dogs may well be back near the top in 7 days time. For the Dogs sake, hopefully their first round loss to the Dons was an aberration.

.

Stat line: In terms of percentage, the Bulldogs are allowing the most points in the competition in the second quarter (41.1%).

.

.

Geelong 3 UP 1 Summary: Two terrific wins to kick-start their 2011 campaign.

.

For the second week in a row, the Cats got over the line against the odds – this time, getting the victory in Perth against Fremantle. I was expecting a drop off from the Cats in 2011, but there are no signs of it yet – even without Joel Selwood for the majority of their 2 games with concussion issues, though he should return to carve up the Power next week.

.

Stat line: The Cats are allowing just 63 points per contest to their opposition (the league average is 94.7 points).

.

.

St Kilda 4 DOWN 1 Summary: Please AFL, give me more Better Homes & Gardens & less St Kilda.

.

In a much more entertaining contest than the previous week versus the Cats, the Saints could manage just a draw against the young Tigers on Friday night (who were without Jack Riewoldt). It may yet prove to be a massive missed opportunity, with a tough schedule ahead for the still winless Saints.

.

Stat line: The oldest list in the AFL is struggling in second terms, averaging only 13 points in their 2 games.

.

.

Hawthorn 5 <NO CHANGE> Summary: Looked dodgy early, but dominated after half time.

.

The Hawks were down early against the Demons, even though they had the majority of scoring shots in the first half. But it was a Hawthorn blitz in the second half, turning a 19-point deficit at the half into a stunning 45-point victory. I considered moving the Hawks up a slot this week but have resisted, for this week at least.

.

Stat line: The Hawks allow 2 goals to every behind so far in 2011.

.

.

Carlton 6 <NO CHANGE> Summary: Got the win, but they must compete against the Pies.

.

You would be forgiven for thinking there was not a second team in action on Saturday night, such was the hype and excitement surrounding the debut of the Suns. For the second week in a row, the Blues were the "buzz kill" of the round, after toppling the Tigers in round 1. The Blues must be very competitive against Collingwood next week to be taken seriously.

.

Stat line: Carlton has to travel interstate only 3 more times this season.

.

.

Fremantle 7 <NO CHANGE> Summary: Couldn't capitalise against an undermanned Geelong.

.

After escaping with a victory over the injury depleted Lions last week, Fremantle couldn't double the dose at home on Saturday night against the Cats, who were missing Selwood and Mooney. A win would have had the Dockers placed perfectly with a favourable stretch of their schedule to come.

.

Stat line: The Dockers are finishing games well in 2011, kicking 29.1% of their score in final terms.

.

.

Sydney 8 <NO CHANGE> Summary: A hard-fought win to remain unbeaten in 2011.

.

In one of the games of the weekend, the Swans came back to inflict Essendon's first loss of the season. It was hard work for Sydney, trailing deep in the final term but found an extra gear to get over the line. The Swans have faced two tough opponents to open 2011 and have the undefeated Eagles in Perth next week.

.

Stat line: The Swans are not getting the ball a lot in 2011, averaging 315 disposals per match (2nd last).

.

.

Adelaide 9 UP 1 Summary: Round 2 Bye, but move up courtesy of Melbourne's capitulation.

.

.

Essendon 10 UP 1 Summary: The first loss of the James Hird era – not the end of the world.

.

Thud. That was the sound of Essendon coming back to earth. Okay, it's not that bad for the Bombers – a win in Sydney was always going to be difficult. They gave a tremendous account of themselves and will take a lot from the narrow defeat. They face the Saints next week in a huge game for both cubs.

.

Stat line: The Bombers are kicking a league low 41.3% of their score in the second half of matches.

.

.

.

Melbourne 11 DOWN 2 Summary: The worst possible result for a finals aspirant.

.

After having the best of their contest with the Hawks for a half, the Dees were steamrolled in the second half (26 scoring shots to 7). This loss is a real blow for the Demons and will place pressure on the coaching staff, namely Dean Bailey, to deliver a better product as the season continues. Must compete with the heavyweights to be a contender.

.

Stat line: The Dees are giving up bunches of points in the second half – 62.1% of total opposition scores, in fact.

.

.

North Melbourne 12 <NO CHANGE> Summary: A bitterly disappointing effort, albeit against the Premiers.

.

The Kangaroos were talking the talk during the week, but didn't give a yelp on Saturday against the Pies. Whilst I don't doubt their kids will be better given more time and development, I believe we can already discount the Roos as potential finalists in 2011. It's a worry that Harvey and Wells were again their best. The kids need to stand up.

.

Stat line: The Roos players must play DreamTeam. They give up 409 disposals to their opponents on average each week.

.

.

Richmond 13 UP 1 Summary: They lost Jack, but almost pulled out a win against the Saints.

.

In a thrilling finish on Friday night, the Tigers couldn't pull out the upset victory – and in the end, only missed opportunities by the Saints in front of goal allowed them to secure a draw. Much will be spoken about the concussion rule (again) this week, whilst Riewoldt will surely regret his temper tantrum on the sidelines.

.

Stat line: Don't listen to what the media may say. The Tigers squad of 22 on the weekend was NOT younger than the Suns.

.

.

West Coast 14 UP 1 Summary: The early surprise packet of 2011.

.

Although the Eagles have defeated two struggling teams in the Roos and Power, they've been the better side on the day on each occasion, pocketing two crucial wins in the process. I don't foresee an unlikely run at September for West Coast, but their start to 2011 has at least given hope to their suffering supporters. Those same supporters should not look at their schedule for the next 7 weeks if they wish to remain upbeat – it's a little daunting.

.

Stat line: The Eagles two opponents so far are yet to win a game in 2011 and have won 3 quarters out of 8.

.

.

Port Adelaide 15 DOWN 2 Summary: Ouch – losing to the Eagles, at home, has to hurt.

.

If being belted by Collingwood in round 1 wasn't bad enough, a loss in Adelaide to the West Coast was not exactly the way to bounce back. The Power at least were right in this match up to the final minutes, but they couldn't get the job done in the crunch and fall to 0-2 already in 2011. I just can't see an upside here.

.

Stat line: The Power rank in the bottom 2 for points differential in the first, second and fourth quarters. That's not good.

.

.

Brisbane 16 <NO CHANGE> Summary: Will struggle from here until their captain returns.

.

The Lions were dealt a cruel blow last week, losing Brown for several months and Staker for the year. As a result, very little will be expected of the club this season. I can't see the Lions being competitive, at least until Jonathon Brown returns mid-year.

.

Stat line: According to my stats people (me), the Lions have the most difficult fixture over the next 3 weeks.

.

.

Gold Coast 17 <NO CHANGE> Summary: The debut didn't quite go to plan, but it's all about the future.

.

I couldn't quite believe several media experts gave the Suns a big chance of defeating the Blues (yes Hutchy, I'm looking at you). I love the Suns in 3 or 4 years, but they will not be up to it in 2011, especially on debut against a battle-hardened team in Carlton. I liked Harris, Smith, Dixon and Bennell – but sadly for the Gold Coast, Josh Fraser is the same player he was when he played for the Pies.

.

Stat line: Saturday night's Suns team had an average of 22.6 years, the youngest in the AFL.
