The World Rugby Game Analysis Team provide quantitative reviews on tournaments and matches assessing the relevant data around an event as well as the relevant data relating to each team’s performance.

  • The rates of scoring and conceding, and the effectiveness of each team in attack and defence
  • The possession source, location origin and activity in the build-up of all tries
  • The effectiveness of each team in the retention and stealing of possession
  • The approach and success of each team at the breakdown
  • The activity of each team in passing, phase play and kicking
  • The performance of each team at set-piece (restart, scrum and lineout)
  • The discipline of each team
