A much more modest return last week for reasons both foreseeable and surprising.
Richmond, Fremantle and Eastern Suburbs were in the first category, while Saint Kilda, Paramatta and Penrith were in the second.
This week again offers some very clear choices, especially in the AFL, in which the distance between the best and worst teams has to be of concern for the competition, because there is not a lot to suggest it’s cyclical.

NRL (last round: 5/8; season tally: 51/72)
Gold Coast
Souths
Saint George/Illawarra
New Zealand
Eastern Suburbs
Canberra
Canterbury
Melbourne

AFL (last round 6/9; season tally: 50/63)
North Melbourne
Essendon
Hawthorn
Gold Coast
