Whateley and King rank their top four seeds after Round 7


Gerard Whateley and David King have named their top four seeds in the AFL after Round 7.

These are the four teams they have the most confidence in going forward, coupled with what the teams have shown so far.

See their seedings below:


1. Richmond

"How did we not have them at one all the way through? I feel a bit silly.

"(Trent) Cotchin does a hamstring – that won’t be a three-weeker, that’ll be 4-5 weeks. (Dion) Prestia setback, he might be 5-6 weeks, not 2-3. You don’t need too many more and all of a sudden it gets too difficult.

"That’s the only thing for me that’s going to stop them being short of a prelim. If you have them one for the year, you’re getting to a prelim.

"Their best is better than anyone else's, it has a level of nastiness and a brutality to it that the others almost have to manufacture.

2. Melbourne

"No one will talk about the win against North Melbourne, but to be in the position they were in, it’s still a very good win.

"To win seven in a row … no one saw this coming. I do think all their components are in good order, I’m worried about that one spot down back now."

3. Western Bulldogs

"It’s a slip from one.

"Still, what they did was very good, but that third quarter scares me a little."

4. Geelong

"Despite the loss, I’ve got Geelong at four.

"They’re doing things that others aren’t exploring yet and it should have worked. If they had have won by two points, it’s a different conversation."


1. Richmond

"Do we nail them in at one and just disregard the week-to-week fluctuations?

"That’s what the question for the rest of the year is going to be because Richmond’s best footy is the best footy."

2. Melbourne

"I really like what they’ve done, salute."

3. Port Adelaide

"They were one for me but go down a couple."

4. Western Bulldogs

"Good body of work, did some things right, failed the PFI (Preliminary Final Integrity).

"Sit at four for a little bit."
