Ask any NRL fan who is the best try scorer so far this season and they will nearly always go to the leading try scorers list. They will nominate the player at the top of that list.

Mark's passion is analysing sports performance using statistics and in particular, rugby league. Although he did stats at uni, he didn't learn much because that subject was on during Friday arvo happy hour. Back in the 90's, he spent 7 years as a handicapper with the AJC. Years later and looking for some new brain challenges, Mark decided to make up for lost time and teach himself statistical analysis and tackle rating and forecasting NRL teams. Away from the spreadsheets, Mark still plays cricket in a local 1st-grade comp (just), despite being on the older side of 50 and is a 4th generation South Sydney supporter.
