Crusaders_006How are the loose forwards looking now we are three quarters of the way through the Super competition? Check out their stats here.

I have included Jarrad Hoeata in this group as he is potentially playing for a spot as blindside/lock cover in the All Blacks squad. Daniel Braid is omitted due to the very few games he has started in this year. Richie McCaw is included because despite only three starts he is undoubtedly the bench mark. All tables start with the top player for that category.
