    So who missed out? The Stats.

    Who’s the best attacking Australian player?

    Based on the criteria below, I guess it’s down to Drew Mitchell, Diggers, Cliffy and David Pocock. Surprisingly for me is Scott Higginbotham, playing his first full season and featuring in both tables…onya Higgers!!! I love stats.
