We all knew Round 14 would be decided by the first game, and it was indeed a close-run thing.
One of my favourite sayings about stats – and my apologies for not knowing its origin – is: “Statistics are like bikinis – what they show is interesting, but what they hide is crucial.”
I rather quite enjoyed some time off last week, the first real period of down time for me since probably late January.
We’ve known for some time that Super Rugby is more often than not skewed toward the home team, yet it’s taken until Round 13 before every home team won.
The great Elisha Pearce hit the nail on the head yesterday on The Roar, outlining why Australian fans should be worried about the state of the goal-kicking leading into the Rugby World Cup.
An up-and-down week, it has to be said, in Round 12. We all started reasonably well, even with some differences in the Brumbies-Tahs slugfest, but it came tumbling down from the Rebels on Saturday night.
