With the comp drawing to a very congested end, it is interesting to look at a range of stats and line it up against the respective team’s positions on the ladder.

What I find surprising is the lowly ‘line-out win %’ of the NZ teams, I guess they aren’t really blessed with decent lineout throwers, but I didn’t think the difference would be so great.

Ominously for the up-coming international season, of the top six teams in terms of offloads, 5 of them are from Nu Zulund and Kiwi teams also take the top three ‘tries scored’ spots.

The Saffers don’t seem the slightest bit interested in offloading the seed with both the Bulls (48) and Sharks (90) in the bottom portion of the table for this KPI but setting a cracking pace out in front in the ‘kicks in general play’ stat.

Both the Tahs and Brumbies are the nice guys of the competition conceding 46 and 44 penalties respectively thus far, this could be important should either make the finals as it will limit the other teams ability to gain cheap points

The comparison between the Reds and the Blues is astounding; both similar in terms of offloads and turnovers, but miles from each other in tries scored.

The Force have the best ‘effective tackle %’ thus far and are pretty average for most of their other stats, I guess that sums their season up, average.
