 Those are interesting.

Most runs for South Africa is a forward

Most kick metres. 2 of the Stormers are in the top 5. Joe Pieterson at 2 and Grant at 5. 

st Kick Metres  
1. Morne Steyn (Bulls) 6180
2. Joe Pietersen (Stormers) 4899
3. Berrick Barnes (Waratahs) 4238
4. Beauden Barrett (Hurricanes) 4131
5. Peter Grant (Stormers) 3873

Most run metres- not one South African in the top 10.

 

Most Line breaks- only one South African- and it is a forward 

Most offloads- Again it is a forward, the only South African

These stats emphasize that our backline play is poor and that we have the best fowards.

If I use the expanded table which goes to top 20 rather than top 10 and I break it down by conference...

*Obviously stats don't represent every player in this S15 season, but I believe it does give a fair indication of the overall picture.

Kicks from hand:

SA:   835

AUS:   609

NZ:   360

 

Metres Run:

NZ:   11,923

SA:   4,221

AUS:   3,570

 

Linebreaks:

NZ:   140

AUS:   47

SA:   27

 NewZealand are completely dominant in most of the stats- The conference system really screws them up. Australia are lucky to have the conference system, and South Africas forward depth helps us. In Backline play new Zealand have by far the most depth- although some players are from the islands etc

 @sasuke-  I do not have an up to date list- but I assure you their is more than one islander. What about Jona Lomu, Taine Randall, Umaga. These are some of the retired players, but their is allways lots of players from Tonga, Fiji, islands etc

 I searched on Google- and it seems that all 3 are actually born in New Zealand. How did I think they were not from New Zealand?

@sharbok,

LMAO bro, all good, but we have had island born players and while they were born on the islands, they were raised in NZ, jerome kaino, mils muliaina, sitivini sivivatu, isaia toeava etc

i have read and discussed on many forums with other saffas and found there to be a strong perception of NZ using islanders to benefit our rugby, but the reality is, these guys come to NZ with their familie as kids for a better life, work and education and the love of rugby which all islanders have is enhanced even more in the NZ the rugby mecca of the world. no one forces these guys to play for NZ and its similar to francois pienaar and beast who were born in zimbabwae.

its a far cry from thomas wladrom, ricky flutey and shantaye hape who were born and bred kiwis that moved to the UK as adults to play professional rugby (league in hapes case) and all ended up playing for england cos of a loophole.
