    Hi all, just wanted to share a stat i saw from the Daily Telegraph this morning that surprised me.

    Tough Nuts To Crack - Best Defense inside your own 20m
    (Tackles made/tries conceded)

    Team / Tackles Made / Tries Conceded / Ratio

    Dragons  480  29  16.6
    Melbourne  493  39  12.6
    Manly  455  43  10.6
    Roosters  510  50  10.2
    Parramatta  508  51  10
    Canterbury  441  44  10
    Warriors  483  49  9.9
    Canberra  413  43  9.6
    Newcastle  534  57  9.4
    Tigers  440  47  9.4
    Penrith  395  43  9.2
    Rabbitohs  446  50  8.9
    Cronulla  534  61  8.8
    Gold Coast  451  53  8.5
    Brisbane  385  46  8.4
    Cowboys  425  60  7.1

    I thought we would have been middle of the teams with this stat, but we are 3rd only behind Melbourne and St George.

    Our goal line defense will be important in the run in to the finals and in the finals, so good to see we are up there with this stat, even though we are well behind the Dragons.

    Gee the Dragons are far ahead of the pack.

    Good to see we are up there though.  I didn't think we would be that high either.

    Yeah I thought our goal line defence was pretty good this year - it's the long range tries against the run of play that have sunk us in 3 or 4 games! vs Titans (both games).. Eels .. Canberra .. etc Shows our transition from attack to defence is slow, and that scrambling / cover defence is not up to scratch.

    Also first Tigers match. Seems to me we concede a lot of long range efforts in broken play.

    I don't understand the "ratio" part of this

    What is it supposed to represent?

    Average number of tackles we make defending in our 20 m zone for each try we concede (at a guess)

    Yep, take for example our stats (455 tackles made for 43 tries) So you divide 455 by 43 = 10.6. So we concede 1 try every 10.6 tackles made in our own 20.

    I think Des would be proud of me...

    So that is an average of 16.6 ,and not a ratio.
    If it was a ratio it would read 16:6 and mean absolutly sweet F.A.

    i honestly thought our goal line defence was a bit worse, i am obviously wrong, its our broken play defence that is woeful !
