Some big results in Round 2 have shaken up the competition already, there are teams already playing for their season just three weeks in.

We take a look at where your club is sitting after the first fortnight of footy.

1. Richmond (-)

The benchmark hasn't changed, they are still the best team and they may well be getting better. They dealt with the Hawks with ease and their pressure is looking as good as ever. Teams are going to have to go up a level to stop them.

Dustin Martin continued his brilliant start to the season as he looks to carry the Tigers to a fourth flag in five years.

2. Port Adelaide (-)

The Power have had a generous fixture to start but have impressively put both North Melbourne and Essendon to the sword. They look as well benefited by the new rules as anyone their ball movement is on another planet.

There are bigger tests upcoming for the Power but they look on the right path.

3. Western Bulldogs (+3)

The Dogs look the goods. Their slick hands are back and they are cutting teams to ribbons. Their deep midfield is working well in tandem and they have the star power to win big games.

Marcus Bontempelli was huge all day on Sunday, as his 30 disposals and three goals carried the Dogs over the line.

4. Geelong (-1)

How lucky were Geelong? They take a one-point win away from the Lions and did so in controversial fashion. They were a lot better then last week even with Patrick Dangerfield missing.

They weren't at their best but it was a step in the right direction. The Cats will get back Dangerfield, Mitch Duncan and Jeremy Cameron over the coming weeks so any wins now are good for the bank.

5. Melbourne (+5)

The Demons looked slick and like a new side to the team we saw last week. Yes, they won last week, but it was a messy victory. This week, they were clean and quick and showed a want to win the contest and played a brand the Saints couldn't match.

More performances like that will go a long way to taking the pressure off Simon Goodwin and securing a finals berth in 2021.

6. Brisbane (-2)

The Lions can consider themselves very unlucky to be 0-2. A free-kick that should have been paid in the final minute of Friday night would have seen them defeat Geelong. But fact is they lost and only five teams out of 58 have made finals from 0-2.

They now have had their Round 3 match moved from the Gabba to Marvel Stadium after a COVID outbreak in Brisbane has kept them from returning home this week. Not ideal.

7. West Coast (-)

They played the role of bridesmaids in what was arguably the game of the season. They were superb and their tall forwards dominated the air space but they were outgunned.

They are now 1-1 and while they were good on the road they still lost away from home again. That trend needs to end ASAP if they are to contend again.

8. St Kilda (-3)

The Saints were poor, no hiding it. On a big night for the club the weren't up to the occasion and they were showed up by a team that wanted it more.

The win over GWS doesn't look as impressive after this week either - they have key personnel missing but they would have expected better. They can't let games slip by as their draw is the league's hardest going forward.

9. Sydney (+3)

The Swans may well be the best young side in the competition, they are just so exciting. Led by Braeden Campbell, Errol Gulden abd Logan McDonald, they look like a danger side for anyone they face in 2021.

The return of Lance Franklin paid immediate dividends as the Swans cruised to 2-0 to start the year and set up a huge clash with the Tigers this weekend. Great test.

10. Collingwood (+5)

What's the old adage? "It's never as good as it seems and it's never as bad as it seems." The Pies looked down and out after a listless Round 1 display but managed to topple arch-rivals Carlton and now everything is rosy.

It was a huge win to assert themselves as a serious finals contender and it was the usual suspects who led the way - Darcy Moore, Scott Pendlebury, Jack Crisp and Taylor Adams were the four stand-outs who led the Pies to a big win.

11. Carlton (-3)

The Blues look lost defensively. They are fun to watch but the are as leaky as any defence in the league. They are the third worst defence and have only conceded four points less than North Melbourne, who are the worst defence.

Two winnable games against Fremantle in Melbourne and away to Gold Coast could salvage their season, but the pressure is on.

12. Fremantle (-1)

It's harsh Fremantle go down a spot because they don't deserve it, their win over the GIANTS was dominant and they looked brilliant. But you get the feeling Freo at home and Freo away are two different teams.

Round 1 their skill level was as poor as it gets and now they lose skipper Nat Fyfe for at least a week to go with the countless other injuries. They were good but they need to do it on the road.

13. Gold Coast (-4)

Again, very harsh. But they beat North Melbourne, and it seems like most will do that this year. They looked good and dictated terms for most of the game but North offered up very little resistance.

They will have the chance to prove their credentials as the season goes on but it was a sign of maturity that they won a game they were expected to win so convincingly.

14. GWS (-1)

What has happened to the Giants? Their midfield was bullied by kids and a 35-year-old. They seem lost and out of ideas and seemingly out of desire.

Their effort was poor on the weekend and they could have lost by a lot more had Fremantle kicked straight. The paper is well and truly off the cracks now and the cracks are becoming gaping holes.

15. Hawthorn (-1)

The Hawks were okay against the Tigers but the reigning premiers never got out of third gear. They did it with ease as the young Hawks battled away.

The effort was there and that's what you want to see. Young gun Will Day went down with injury which is a blow to a young team but there was some signs there.

16. Adelaide (-)

They were beaten comprehensively by the Swans but it was probably fair to expect a drop after the enormous effort they gave in Round 1.

Taylor Walker continues his resurgence, booting six goals on the weekend. The peaks and troughs will be apart of the Adelaide CV for a few years to come it seems but that is all part of the journey.

17. North Melbourne (-)

Last week it seemed they tried but there wasn't much they could do, this week they were just awful. They were miles off it and you can't blame youth because the opposition had plenty of that too.

Their experienced players made simple mistakes and they offered no fight when the Suns put the foot down.

18. Essendon (-)

The clouds are getting darker and darker at Tullamarine. They were walked around like training cones by Port Adelaide with very little pressure.

They have some kids still waiting in the wings and it's time to bring them in. They are in trouble and their last six quarters have shown very little fight and want to win.
