Rugby World Cup 2011: All Blacks v Japan, Hamilton
by Tracey Nelson
17 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.

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: Andrew Hore for Keven Mealamu and Sonny Bill Williams for Cory Jane at 44 min, John Afoa for Owen Franks, Ali Williams for Victor Vito at 58 min, Jimmy Cowan for Andy Ellis and Piri Weepu for Isaia Toeava all at 61 min, and Anthony Boric for Brad Thorn at 71 min.

Try scorers: Kahui (2), SB Williams (2), Smith, Kaino, Mealamu, Ellis, Slade, Toeava, Hore, Nonu, Thomson.

Team: Tony Woodcock, Keven Mealamu, Owen Franks, Brad Thorn, Sam Whitelock, Jerome Kaino, Adam Thomson, Victor Vito, Andy Ellis, Colin Slade, Richard Kahui, Ma’a Nonu, Conrad Smith, Cory Jane, Isaia Toeava
Reserves: Andrew Hore, John Afoa, Ali William, Anthony Boric, Jimmy Cowan, Piri Weepu, Sonny Bill Williams
