NRL continued its (lack) of formline last week, while the AFL demonstrated some interesting results.
The NRL has what would seem to be a round that pretty much tips itself, with the Wests/Cronulla game close and Easts due to do something sometime.
The AFL has a round that poses challenges to Hawthorn, Adelaide, Fremantle and Collingwood who wouldn’t have been expected to begin the season with two losses if results go against them this weekend. Melbourne and Western Bulldogs starting with two wins may not have been expected either. Geelong seem to have had the best offseason recruiting drive in recent memory.
