    What the hell!

    I just checked out some team stats for all teams.

    Wests Tigers are the only team to rank in the bottom 6 in all of the following fields.

    Runs (13th)
    Metres Gained (15th)
    Errors (14th)
    Line Breaks (15th)
    Missed tackles (13th)
    Off Loads (11th)
    Tries Scored (11th)
    Tackle Breaks (15th)
    Effective Tackle % (14th)

    Based on all these fields and each teams respective rank in those areas, this is how the ladder looks (wins not included, purely ion field stats only)

    Brisbane
    Melbourne
    Cronulla
    Canberra
    Canterbury
    St George-Illawarra
    Souths
    North Queensland

    Penrith
    Newcastle
    Sydney Roosters
    Warriors
    Gold Coast
    Manly
    Wests Tigers
    Parramatta

    There are 4 teams that have made 1000 metres+ more than the Tigers already, after just 5 games!

    The Tigers have made just 40 metres more than Parramatta

    Tigers 4493 metres gained
    Parramatta 4453 metres gained

    These are also the only two teams with less than 5000 metres gained.

    only 3 teams have less than 12 line breaks so far this year
    Titans - 9
    Tigers - 8
    Parramatta - 7

    Tigers and Parramatta are equal last for tackle breaks with 88. Knights and Titans have 97, the next worst is Melbourne with 119

    Only 4 teams have an effective tackle % under 90%
    Titans - 89.96%
    Tigers - 89.70%
    Manly - 89.58%
    Warriors - 88.14%

    Interesting to note also that even though we're the only team to rank in the bottom six for those stats, we're not last in any.

    That's an oddity.

    couple of key stats missing

    penalties ( WTs have conceded the most)

    time in possession ( flows on from penalties conceded but impacts greatly on all of the other stats )

    watch enough football of any code and the team with the most possession generally wins . ocassionly theres a bizarre ru game that a team might win with 35% possession but usually not .

    Union?

    You only need the ball for a few mins, throw a few forward passes and then kick a penalty goal.

    Different bloody game mate.

    Off the top of my head we're 0 and 3 v Souths in golden point, the first loss was on the back of a massive referee blunder in 2004 from memory, then merritt's field goal and then last weekend.

    Those losses are by 16, 8 and 18. No 40 point losses there. But we did concede 40 points....
