S15 Round4 – Stand out players

Werner Kruger made the most line breaks in the Bulls vs Force game! Sure stats can be be manipulated to tell any story, but they are still fun to eyeball.  

Stand out players from the Bulls vs Force game:

Most Tackles: Kyle Godwin 16

Most Offloads: Wynand Olivier 3

Most Kicks: Sias Ebersohn 13

Most Runs: Arno Botha 11

Most Metres: Angus Cottrell 94m

Most Line Breaks: Werner Kruger 1

It’s not often that you will see a tighthead prop with the most line breaks in a match but I think this speaks more to the fact that there were not many of them in the game!


Stand out players from the Chiefs vs Cheetahs game:

Most Tackles: Pieter Labuschagne 18

Most Offloads: Sarel Pretorius 3

Most Kicks: Aaron Cruden 5

Most Runs: Philip van der Walt 10

Most Metres: Robert Ebersohn 82m

Most Line Breaks: Liam Messam 1

Not often you will see 4 out of the 6 players from the losing side, BUT the Cheetahs missed 33 tackles and 13 of the ones they did make were ineffective …


Stand out players from the Sharks vs Stormers game:

Most Tackles: Marcell Coetzee 17

Most Offloads: Francois Steyn 1

Most Kicks: Patrick Lambie 13

Most Runs: Deon Fourie 12

Most Metres run: Damian de Allende 63m

Most Line Breaks: Louis Ludik 1

Sharks vs Stormers



63 (300m) RUNS 90 (454m)

32 (1116m) KICKS 27 (937m)

167 TACKLES Attempted 132

3 TACKLES Ineffective 3

10 TACKLES Missed 12

18 TURNOVERS coughed up 21

Does not get much tighter than this. A fairly dour arm-wrestle with the Sharks more effective and accurate with their kicks I guess …


Stand out players from the Blues vs Crusaders game:

Most Tackles: Matt Todd – 20

Most Offloads: Luke Braid – 4

Most Kicks: Chris Noakes – 8

Most Runs: Israel Dagg- 13

Most Metres: Israel Dagg – 165m

Most Line Breaks: Luke Braid – 2

Blues vs Crusaders



110 (639m) RUNS 101 (693m)

23 (683m) KICKS 16 (748m)

188 TACKLES Attempted 188

5 TACKLES Ineffective 12

16 TACKLES Missed 19

14 TURNOVERS coughed up 17

More line breaks and offloads from the Blues, along with some ineffective tackling from the Crusaders made for an entertaining and emphatic win for the Blues.
