THE table shows the total scoring returns for the first four rounds of the Allianz NFL over five seasons. Division 4 is not included because Kilkenny withdrew from the league at the end of 2011. Including them would distort the figures over a five-year period.

2014 40-463 (583) 36-401 (509) 27-399 (480) 103-1,263 (1,572)

2013 29-365 (452) 40-390 (510) 29-341 (428) 98-1,096 (1,390)
