Scoring is a big part of our game and it is what the fans love to see.

Higher scoring and fast-moving play is something the AFL is trying to implement with new rules that clubs must follow.

The AFL believes more goals equals more entertaining footy, and in some respect, this is true. So with that in mind, we'll take a look at the scoring patterns of each club in the AFL since the start of the 2018 season, stats courtesy of Stats Insider.
