AFL Round Nine 2019 – Power Rankings

Who went up and who went down in the Pinch Hitters Power Rankings after Round Nine.

1. (1) GEELONG

Another round, another win for Geelong. After nine rounds they are sitting pretty on top of the ladder while the rest of the competition scraps it out behind them.

LAST FIVE: Haw (W), WCE (W), Ess (W), NM (W), WB (W).

NEXT FIVE: GC (A), Syd (H), Rich (A), PA (A), Ade (H).


Tested for three quarters before a final quarter burst saw them power away from the Saints to extend their winning streak to six.

LAST FIVE: BL (W), Ess (W), PA (W), Carl (W), StK (W).

NEXT FIVE: Syd (A), Fre (H), Melb (H), WB (A), NM (H).

3. (5) GWS

The Giants flexed their muscle in handing out an almighty hiding to the Blues. Still some difference between their best and worst performances but their best is still outstanding.

LAST FIVE: Fre (L), Syd (W), StK (W), Haw (L), Carl (W).

NEXT FIVE: Melb (A), GC (H), Ade (A), NM (A), Ess (A).


Richmond were too good for the Haws on the weekend running away with a comfortable victory at the MCG on Sunday. The wounded Tigers keep getting the job done each wek and will fancy their chances to do so again and again over the next fortnight.

The wounded Tigers keep getting the job done each week.

LAST FIVE: Melb (W), WB (L), Fre (W), Haw (W).

NEXT FIVE: Ess (H), NM (A), Gee (H), Ade (A), StK (A).


The Eagles winning streak extends to three but still have some way to go before they hit their best form.

LAST FIVE: PA (L), Gee (L), GC (W), StK (W), Melb (W).

NEXT FIVE: Ade, (A), WB (H), Syd (A), Ess (H), Haw (A).


A big win for the Lions over the Crows as their finals claims continue to improve with each passing week

LAST FIVE: Coll (L), GC (W), Syd (W), WB (L), Ade (W).

NEXT FIVE: Fre (A), Haw (H), Carl (A), StK (A), Melb (H).


The Crows four game winning streak came to an end in a thriller at the Gabba. We will get a good idea of just how good they are with three big tests in the next four weeks.

LAST FIVE: GC (W), StK (W), Fre (W), PA (W), BL (L).

NEXT FIVE: WCE (H), Melb (A), GWS (H), Rich (H), Gee (A).


The Power got the points after a soggy contest with the Suns at home on Sunday. Have an opportunity to consolidate their place in the eight over the next fortnight with games they’ll be expected to win.

LAST FIVE: WCE (W), NM (W), Coll (L), Ade (L), GC (W).

NEXT FIVE: Haw (A), StK (A), Fre (A), Gee (H), WB (H).


Back to earth for the Bulldogs after a couple of strong performances.

NEXT FIVE: NM (H), WCE (A), Carl (A), Coll (H), PA (A).

10. (14) ESSENDON

It might have been ugly, but it was a victory worth its weight in gold for the Bombers over the Dockers. Dreamtime at the G awaits for an Essendon team trying to put their season back on track.

LAST FIVE: NM (W), Coll (L), Gee (L), Syd (L), Fre (W).

NEXT FIVE: Rich (A), Carl (H), Haw (H), GWS (H), Syd (H).

After a strong start to the season, three straight defeats has the Dockers season in free fall.

LAST FIVE: GWS (W), WB (W), Ade (L), Rich (L) Ess (L).

NEXT FIVE: BL (H), Coll (A), PA (H), Melb (A), Carl (H).

NEXT FIVE: PA (H), BL (A), Ess (A), Syd (A), WCE (H).

13. (12) MELBOURNE

After a positive fortnight, the Demons fell short against the Eagles in Perth. It doesn’t get any easier either with a particularly difficult five weeks ahead.

LAST FIVE: StK (L), Rich (L), Haw (W), GC (W), WCE (L).

NEXT FIVE: GWS (H), Ade (H), Coll (A), Fre (H), BL (A).

14. (13) ST KILDA

The losing streak extends to four and the fast start to the season is starting to become a distant memory.

LAST FIVE: Melb (W), Ade (L), GWS (L), WCE (L), Coll (L).

NEXT FIVE: Carl (H), PA (H), GC (A), BL (H), Rich (H).
