AFL Round Ten 2019 – Power Rankings

Who rose up and who fell down in the Pinch Hitters Power Rankings after Round 10?

1. (1) GEELONG

Tested by the Suns on the Gold Coast but got the job done to maintain their position a game and percentage on top of the ladder.

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

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


Their winning streak extends to seven after they escaped Sydney with a seven point victory.

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

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

3. (3) GWS

The Giants MCG hoodoo was at least temporarily overcome with a comfortable victory over the Dees. With four wins from their last five games, things are coming along nicely on the west side of Sydney.

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

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


The Tigers are still quietly going about their business waiting for a number of star players to return.

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

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


Stung into action against the Crows, their last quarter comeback extended their winning streak to four.

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

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


The Lions lost no friends in their one point defeat to the Dockers in Perth. Have the chance to consolidate their position over the next month.

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

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


The Crows looked the goods for much of their game against the Eagles but instead fell to their second consecutive defeat. Will be looking to get back on the winners list when they visit the Demons next start.

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

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


A big win for the Dockers over the Lions bringing an end to a three game losing streak but a tricky fortnight lies ahead.

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

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

9. (12) HAWTHORN

Not for the first time this year, and probably not for the last, the Hawks bounce back after we had written them off a week earlier. Will we ever learn?

LAST FIVE: Carl (W), Melb (L), GWS (W), Rich (L), PA (W).

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


An unhappy trip to Launceston for the Power, will be looking to bounce back and maintain their perfect Shanghai record next week.

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

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

11. (14) ST KILDA

Got the points as expected against the Blues, but may have been less than impressive to some observers. Worth noting that they fielded a younger and less experienced team than their rebuilding opponents.

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

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


Were on the wrong end of the scoreboard after a see-sawing contest against the Kangaroos. Have a tricky month ahead of them.

LAST FIVE: Fre (L), Rich (W), BL (W), Gee (L), NM (L).

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


The Kangaroos won a see-sawing contest against the Bulldogs to send Coach Brad Scott off on a winning note.

LAST FIVE: PA (L), Carl (W), Gee (L), Syd (L), WB (W).

NEXT FIVE: Rich (H), GC (A), GWS (H), Coll (A), StK (A).

14. (15) SYDNEY

A third thriller in succession for the Swans but unfortunately they couldn’t overcome the highflying Magpies.

LAST FIVE: GWS (L), BL (L), Ess (W), NM (W), Coll (L).

NEXT FIVE: Gee (A), WCE (H), Haw (H), GC (H), Ess (A).

15. (10) ESSENDON

For a team that began the year with high expectations, they looked a long way off the pace against the Tigers.

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

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

16. (13) MELBOURNE

There will be no second successive finals appearance for the Demons in 2019.

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

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

17. (17) GOLD COAST

A sixth straight loss for the Suns but not before they gave the Cats a hell of a scare.

LAST FIVE: BL (L), WCE (L), Melb (L), PA (L), Gee (L).

NEXT FIVE: GWS (A), NM (H), StK (H), Syd (A), Rich (H).

18. (18) CARLTON

Turned up ready to scrap with the Saints, but weren’t composed enough when it mattered to avoid a fifth straight defeat.

LAST FIVE: Haw (L), NM (L), Coll (L), GWS (L), StK (L).

NEXT FIVE: Ess (A), BL (H), WB (H), Fre (A), Melb (H).
