NOTE: This division splits into two separate competitions after 33 games, comprising the top 6 and bottom 6 clubs which then play each other once again. No club in the bottom half after 33 games can finish higher than 7th no matter how many points they gain. This means that sequencing of teams in the NLM table may not be accurate after 33 games.
