Agree about stats ... but in this case they are representative in such they are all wingers and have all played the same number of games ... and it can be concluded that their match involvement would be similar if not the same .....Never have been a fan of straight stats, they are easily misrepresented.
I would much prefer a percentage based stat, ie how many times a player handled the ball compared to mistake made.... On the surface of it I would think the others on this list handled the ball more for a higher error rate but would be a lower %. Would be far more accurate than just stumping up how many times a player dropped the ball, same as for missed tackles.
I like Jorge, I hope he smashes it this weekend.
That is a fair call, out of interest I did a little digging, Taufua (not kicks) over 2 games 94.6% handling success rate compared to say Fusitu 93%, Tupou 93.9% and Vinvalu 88.1%, it confirms your highness's assumptions above..This mere numbnut bows to the great one .....Agree about stats ... but in this case they are representative in such they are all wingers and have all played the same number of games ... and it can be concluded that their match involvement would be similar if not the same .....
But even if number of touchs were relevant .... it would mean that most of those players would have to have had 3 or 4 times more touchs than Jorge to be equal ... that is clearly not the case ...
PSS ... I rarely just "stump" up figures without giing them some thought ....
Jorge’s strength’s are his powerful running game (particularly when coming out of our own end) his finishing, and the whack he can bring in defence. It wasn’t like he had to rediscover a lost passing/kicking game, or some other highly technical skill. Simple stuff, and he got his mojo back tonight.There are a lot of posters on here that need to reconsider their comments over the past two weeks about Jorge.
This time I am thankful I didn't enter the bagging of the bloke with more hair than a Russian female shot putter.
