  1. Adelaide (-)

Ladder position: 1st

Every side has now tasted defeat in 2017, as the Crows began their match against North Melbourne on Saturday at the start of the second quarter. It's fair to say the loss will be a minor bump on their road this season, though.

2. GWS (-)

Ladder position: 2nd

GWS were overrun by St Kilda in the final term, with long-term injuries to Adam Kennedy and Jacob Hopper adding to Friday night's woes. Like the side above them, they'll be able to bounce back without a fuss.

3. Western Bulldogs (-)

Ladder position: 5th

The Dogs were jumped early but kept themselves in the contest until it mattered on Saturday night, and did enough to blow by Richmond in the final stages of an exciting game.

4. West Coast (+2)

Ladder position: 4th

It's not away games that scare the Eagles, just the MCG. West Coast got the four points at Adelaide Oval against a strong Power side on the weekend, and didn't look threatened after half-time despite tense final minutes.

5. Port Adelaide (-1)

Ladder position: 7th

As quickly as they jumped into the top four of our Power Rankings they fall back out, as Port Adelaide couldn't take advantage of a home game against West Coast. A long trip and big game against the Gold Coast in China awaits.

6. Geelong (-1)

Ladder position: 3rd

Most would have seen last weekend's loss to Collingwood as a once-off, so two losses in a row to bottom eight teams may be a slight cause for concern for Cats officials. Lose to Essendon this week and questions over their premiership credentials will be asked.

7. St Kilda (+1)

Ladder position: 8th

One of the club's best wins in recent memory. The Saints booted six goals to GWS' one in the final term, and have set themselves up for a strong fortnight with home matches against Carlton and Sydney ahead.

8. Richmond (-1)

Ladder position: 6th

Despite the loss, it was a match in which Tiger fans saw their side bounce back and respond well after a poor showing against Adelaide the week before, which will give them confidence going forward.

9. Fremantle (+1)

Ladder position: 9th

After they opened the season with two poor results, Fremantle have won four of their past five to rocket straight back in to finals contention. The Dockers took control in the second half, slamming on 12 goals to four after the main break.

10. Melbourne (-1)

Ladder position: 10th

A slow start was enough to derail the Demons on Sunday, as the Hawks led by as many as 35-points in the third quarter before holding on for a three-point victory. It's another game Melbourne have let slip, which could come back to haunt them at season's end.

11. North Melbourne (+2)

Ladder position: 14th

What a first quarter. North came out firing and booted 10 goals to zero in the opening term, and took Adelaide by surprise in the process. It was a well deserved win given their close losses to start the season.

12. Essendon (-)

Ladder position: 12th

Essendon's short turnaround before the Melbourne game following ANZAC Day looked to bite them again, running out of legs in the second half of a tough contest against Fremantle in the west.

13. Gold Coast (+1)

Ladder position: 11th

A big scalp for the Suns at home, who beat Geelong for just the second time in their history. Sunday's game in China against Port Adelaide is massive for Gold Coast, who would love to head into their post-overseas bye with a 4-4 record.

14. Carlton (+1)

Ladder position: 13th

The Blues rained on Collingwood's parade once again, leapfrogging their arch-nemesis' in the process. Carlton's young brigade stood tall while their veterans led from the front, in another promising performance.

15. Collingwood (-4)

Ladder position: 15th

A win against Geelong, then a loss against Carlton. The inconsistent nature of Collingwood's season looks set to continue, as the Pies are continuing to struggle, and playing quite poorly in the process.

16. Hawthorn (+1)

Ladder position: 16th

Two wins from three after starting the season with five straight losses is always promising, and the Hawks looked like their former selves once again for the opening half at least. The big question is, can they back it up?

17. Sydney (+1)

Ladder position: 17th

Finally. Sydney breezed past the Lions to get their first four points of the season, as Buddy led from the front with a brilliant eight-goal performance. North Melbourne awaits.

18. Brisbane (-2)

Ladder position: 18th

It'll be a hard slog for the Lions this season, but it'll definitely be worth it in the end, there's definitely some talent in this group.
