Super Rugby Statistics After Round 6: Goal Kicking

Super Rugby Statistics After Round 6: Goal Kicking

After six rounds in the Super Rugby competition, the greater number of games played is providing us with statistics that are a little more meaningful.

This week I’ve looked at goal-kicking stats.

James O’Connor from the Force is showing why he’ll be in the Wallabies starting team in 2011 with a current success rate of 81 per cent — second only to the Stormers.

The other Australian teams, with the exception of the Waratahs, have percentages in the low 70s range.  The Waratahs are lagging badly at only 59 per cent.

We know that the Stormers have been travelling really well without scoring a lot of tries, but after they scored six tries against the Force in Round 6, it’s the Force who now lead the way in terms of the percentage of points scored from penalty goals with 68 per cent (compared to 59 for the Stormers).
