Total points For team divided by total points Against team X 100

Understanding the ladder
P = games played 
W = wins
L = losses
D = draw 
For = total points scored by team for season
Ag = total points scored against team for season
% = percentage for the season so far (calculated using formula above)
Pts = total of points for each win or draw (4 pts for a win, 2 for a draw)
When more than one team has the same points the team with the greater percentage is higher on the ladder.
