AFL Round 9 Review (Season 2022)

Facts and Figures

Average Score: 80.22 points per team, which is fairly low, when taking into account eight out of 18 teams scored 90 points or more.
Average Winning Margin: 42.66 points per game, which indicates there weren’t many close games. Despite that, three out of nine games had a margin of 30 points or less!
