With just over a month to go until the 2024 Australian Waterpolo League finals, the season is ramping up with teams vying for all important Championship points and positions on the ladder.

The final three weeks of the regular season will see teams make one last push to secure themselves a spot in the finals lineup.

A strong season from the Drummoyne Devils men sees them comfortably atop the leaderboard with an unbeaten streak of 12 from 12 wins and a total of 48 points. 

Defending champions the UNSW Wests Magpies currently sit in second place, just two wins behind their cross town rivals. Despite being second on the leaderboard, the UNSW Wests Magpies have scored the most goals of any team so far this season. With 206 goals to their name, they sit nearly 20 goals ahead of the next closest team and current ladder leaders.

The UTS Balmain Tigers men sit in the third highest position on the ladder, with the momentum of a nine-game winning streak fuelling them forwards for the final three weeks of the regular season.

The Sydney Uni Lions have performed consistently throughout the season, securing themselves nine wins and placing themselves fourth on the ladder.

After a slower start to the season that saw them lose their first three matches, the ACU Cronulla Sharks have bit back and now sit in fifth position, followed by the two teams from Western Australia, the UWA Torpedoes and Fremantle Mariners in sixth and seventh respectively.

In the women’s league, defending champions the Griffith University Queensland Thunder are currently on top, recording just one loss across their 14 games this season. 

Strong contenders for the title, the Fremantle Marlins are not far behind in second place, while the UTS Balmain Tigers remain consistent across the leagues, again currently sitting in third position on the women’s ladder.

With a 75% win rate, the Drummoyne Devils sit in fourth position on the ladder.

The UWA Torpedoes are sitting in fifth position with the highest number of goals in the women's league at 204, putting them more than 50 goals ahead of the team in sixth place, the UNSW Wests Killerwhales.

The ACU Cronulla Sharks are currently in seventh position with six wins and 25 points to their name.
