Interesting stats. Be nice to see the numbers divided by the number of games played as these kinds of stats are dominated by the guys who don't get injured and don't get picked for internationals

Well done Luke Wallace, he'll probably never step up to internationals but that does show he's better on the deck then people credit (Pooly).

Dave Ward again had another good season as a 7...

It's his technique which is wrong, not so much the amount of turnovers. He usually plants his hands firmly on the deck, he'd be hammered by the SH refs.

I think you're wrong there mate.

Obviously I'm biased but a. I think all players put their hands on the deck when they think they can get away with it, it's not policed as much as it was and b. It happens a fair bit in Superrugby too.

As I say personally I'd want another season or two of these stats before he was even in the EPS, as this could easily be an anomaly, and tbh I don't see him making it as an international because of other parts of his game.

Yea agree it's quite rife in the AP. I just don't see Wallace as being effective when he doesn't do this, I don't think he can change his technique.

It was pinged of the park in the WC, Cole being one of the major culprits for England.

It shows how our season has gone with the two top tacklers.

Good showing from the future Lions captain Mr Robinson.
