Rugby World Cup 2011: All Blacks v France, Auckland, Game Stats
by Tracey Nelson
25 Sep 2011

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’ve made the tackle or you’ve missed it.

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: Sonny Bill Williams for Cory Jane at 33 min, Andy Ellis for Piri Weepu, Ali Williams for Sam Whitelock, and Andrew Hore for Keven Mealamu all at 55 min, Colin Slade for Richard Kahui at 61 min, Ben Franks for Owen Franks at 68 min, Anthony Boric for Adam Thomson at 72 min.

Try scorers: Thomson, Jane, Dagg (2), SB Williams.
