2011 MARS Ratings After Finals Week 2

The Hawks' grabbed just over 2 Ratings Points from Sydney on the back of their 6-goal victory, while the Eagles snared just half a Ratings Point from the Blues, leaving team order unchanged on the MARS Ladder.

Carlton look set to finish the season as the fourth-highest ranked team, comfortably ahead of the Eagles. It's a moot point, but I do wonder whether the Blues might have progressed further had the draw been kinder to them and they'd consequently finished fourth rather than fifth, thereby avoiding the trip to Western Australia.

Anyway, they'll start next year with a MARS rating well above 1,000.
