Game Stats: Springboks v All Blacks, Johannesburg, 21 August 2010

The usual analysis of the All Blacks game, being the First 3 to the Breakdown, ball carries, tackle stats, penalties conceded, turnovers, the lineouts, and scrums. Dan Carter overtook Johnny Wilkinson as the highest test points scorer with his third penalty goal of this test match, his tally is now 1113 points.

Please note Completed Tackles means that player actually brought the ball carrier to ground (ie. halting the movement and being the tackler according to the laws of the game), not assists in the tackle situation which aretallied separately. Missed tackles also includes slipped tackles where the ball carrier isn’t stopped. Most importantly, I do NOT call a slipped tackle a tackle, it gets noted as a missed tackle.

Numbers in brackets are the first half/second half breakdown for each total. An asterisk denotes a player who came on as a substitute.

Team: Woodcock, Mealamu, Ben Franks, Thorn, Donnelly, Kaino, McCaw(c), Read, Cowan, Carter, Rokocoko, Nonu, Smith, Jane, Muliaina
Reserves: Flynn, Afoa, Whitelock, Vito, Weepu, Cruden, Dagg

Substitutions were: Weepu for Cowan at 42 min, Whitelock for Donnelly at 50 min, Dagg for Rokocoko at 57 min, Afoa for Franks and Vito for Kaino at 65 min.
