After Collingwood’s army ants went to work on them in last year’s Preliminary Final, I said Geelong’s time was up. They looked like doomed species that day. I expected them to lie down and become part of the fossil record of great teams.

In the pre-season there were seven sides considered to be premiership contenders. As we head into the split round, it’s time to reassess that notion. There are three sides that clearly still remain on the list, but it’s hard to make a case for most of the other 13 clubs.
