The 2019 AFL ladder is finally taking shape after a typically confusing start to the season, with every side in the competition having now been defeated at least once.

Six teams are sitting on three wins and one loss, with Geelong and Brisbane both suffering their first respective defeats in Round 4.

Roar AFL Expert Marnie Cohen joined the Game of Codes podcast on Tuesday to give her take on the true contenders of 2019, telling host Matthew Petherick and Editor Daniel Jeffrey that Greater Western Sydney are leading the charge with Geelong and West Coast close behind.

Leon Cameron’s men became the first team to scalp the in-form Cats over the weekend with an impressive performance that put their premiership credentials well and truly on the table.

A season-ending injury to Callan Ward May have soured the win, but the Giants will be hoping their depth across the midfield and the likely return of Toby Greene will help them maintain momentum.

Greater Western Sydney’s next five fixtures will see them take on Fremantle, Sydney, St Kilda, Hawthorn and Carlton.
