Passes per Ruck

Postby Zhivago » Sat Oct 12, 2019 7:25 pm

This metric is being used in analysis in various articles that I've read... but they don't supply the numbers... so I calculated it based off espn scrum.com stats hub, for the tier 1 teams.

Good work, although I think it'll be a more relevant stat when the knock outs happen and it's not skewed by the varying quality of the opposition.

A more useful, though perhaps harder to record metric, is a tally of how many passes per phase a side uses, that is how many with zero, one, two, three and so on passes. o

"More useful" interestingly implies that the above stats have some use. Which I confess I cant see for myself.

like I said I didn't invent this metric, it was mentioned in an article

Yeah, could be a useful stat but would need consistent context. Over a Six Nations it could be interesting (weather dependent)

Keeping ball in hand or kicking is really down to what opposition you’re playing, strong or weak, the weather conditions and even the individual half backs.

Most forwards picking up at the back of the ruck usually pick and go or pass to their colleagues in the forwards to set up the next ruck

Pretty meaningless I would have thought.
