Ladders after Round 2

International Cup 2014

The ladders are now taking shape after Round 2 of the 2014 AFL International Cup and with just 1 round remaining before breaking into divisions we can begin to see who is in contention for the coveted Men's semi-finals and a chance to play on the MCG in the Grand Final.

The Women's is straight forward but the Men are divided into 3 pools, with the complication being that the top 4 that go through to the semi-finals after 3 rounds are the top of each pool and then the next best based on combining all the teams - hence we've also shown a Combined ladder.  That will also determine the teams that make what the AFL has called Division 1, i.e. teams 5 - 12, and Division 2, i.e. teams 13 to 18.

There are, as always, some bizarre percentages, due to lopsides matches and not in a small way because we've stuck to the AFL / Victorian way of calculating percentage, which is now spreading throughout Australian football  throughout the world, namely points for divided by points against multipled by 100, rather than the conventional maths of for divided by (for plus against) multipled by 100.  So the % means per 100 points scored by the opposition, not per 100 points of the total scores.  As such New Zealand, on 355 for, 0 against, have a percentage that is infinite or undefined.

Percentage has been calculated as per the AFL way, namely points for divided by points against multipled by 100. This produces strange values with the many lopsided results so far, but we've decided to stay with this since ultimately the AFL will show the ladders the same way. As such at the completion of round 2 New Zealand technically have 355 for divided by 0 against which is infinite or undefined.
