The usual analysis of the All Blacks game, being the First 3 to the Breakdown, tackle stats, penalties conceded, turnovers, the lineouts, and scrums.

Some notes on these stats:

First Three to the Breakdown stats are looking for those players who are getting to the tackle/breakdown quickly and are also being useful by either cleaning out opposition players or setting up ruck ball. Anyone arriving and just leaning on the ruck isn’t included, so there are times when I will only tally one or two players. Likewise, if four players arrive simultaneously and perform a clean-out and setting up of a ruck, I will include all four in the stat.

Completed Tackles means that player actually brought the ball carrier to ground (ie. as the Laws of the Game actually described the tackler), not assists in the tackle situation which are tallied separately.

Missed tackles also includes slipped tackles where the ball runner gets away. Most importantly, I do NOT included slipped tackles in the Tackles Made stats, it gets noted as a missed tackle. Either you’re nailing the ball carrier or you’ve stuffed it up!

Numbers in brackets are the first half/second half breakdown for each total. An asterisk denotes a player that came on as a substitute. This week: Franks for Afoa at 51 min, Ellis for Cowan at 53 min, HOre for Mealamu and Weepu for Slade at 60 min, Afoa back on for Woodcock (blood) at 61 min and remained on for rest of game, Hoeata for A Williams and Vito for Messam at 69 min, Jane for Gear at 71 min.

Team: Tony Woodcock, Keven Mealamu (c), JOhn Afoa, Sam Whitelock, Ali Williams, Jerome Kaino, Adam Thomson, Liam Messam, Jimmy Cowan, Colin Slade, Sonny Bill Williams, Richard Kahui, Hosea Gear, Isaia Toeava, Israel Dagg
Reserves: Andrew Hore, Ben Franks, Jarrad Hoeata, Victor Vito, Andy Ellis, Piri Weepu, Cory Jane
