West Coast had a very big win over GWS in this Round.
It was the first bye week. Six games were played.
The teams with a bye this week were: Geelong, Richmond, Collingwood, North Melbourne, Adelaide and the Gold Coast.
After eight Rounds, the average points gap per game between winners and losers is:
One of the performance indicators that interests me is the score at the end of the Third Quarter.
In Round 8, four teams overcame end of Third Quarter deficits to win: Port Adelaide (8 points v Fremantle), Western Bulldogs (5 points v Melbourne), Essendon (4 points v Brisbane) and Sydney (3 points v Hawthorn.
So far this season there have been eleven occasions when a team has overcome a Third Quarter deficit to win.
