Game Stats: Wallabies v All Blacks, Melbourne, 31 July 2010
by Tracey Nelson
2 Aug 2010

The usual analysis of the All Blacks game,including First 3 to the Breakdown, ball carries, tackle stats, penalties conceded, turnovers, the lineouts, and scrums. Joe Rokocoko became the most capped All Black winger of all time when he started in this test match, while Tony Woodcock matched Greg Somerville’s record for appearances at prop (66 tests).

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 are tallied 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: Tony Woodcock, Keven Mealamu, Owen Franks, Brad Thorn, Tom Donnelly, Jerome Kaino, Richie McCaw(c), Kieran Read, Jimmy Cowan, Dan Carter, Ma’a Nonu, COnrad Smith, Josevata Rokocoko, Cory Jane, Mils Muliaina
Reserves: Cory Flynn, Ben Franks, Sam Whitelock, Victor Vito, Piri Weepu, Aaron Cruden, Israel Dagg.

Substitutions were: Weepu for Cowan at 33 min, Ben Franks for OWen Franks at 43 min, Whitelock for Donnelly at 57 min, Flynn for Mealamu and Cruden for Nonu at 70 min, Vito for Thorn at 74 min and Dagg for Jane at 75 min.
