Take a look at some of the most interesting numbers with our #statchat feature!

60: Jaguares powerhouse loose forward Pablo Matera has made more carries than any other player in the competition with 60 carries.

12: No wonder the Hurricanes have scored so many tries in 2017 with Julian Savea and Ngani Laumape leading the clean breaks tally with 12 each.


52: Cheetahs first five-eighth Fred Zeilinga has got his radar on target this year by racking up 52 points. Second on the point-scoring list is the Kings Lionel Cronje with 45 points.

11: There’s no secret the Sunwolves like to keep the ball moving, and this is displayed in the offloading statistics with Shota Emi (11) and Jamie-Jerry Taulagi (10) leading the offloading chart.

53: Brumbies lock Sam Carter is proving to be a real workhorse in 2017 with 53 tackles. Blake Gibson from the Blues is the highest ranked New Zealand player on the list with 50 tackles.

6: Hurricanes speedster Vince Aso is relishing his time on the wing this year with six tries putting him at the top of the charts.

416: Despite only playing three games, Stormers fullback Sarel Marais has run more metres than any other player in Super Rugby with 416 metres.

23: The Sharks Ruan Botha has used all of his 2.05m height to good effect in 2017 with 23 lineout takes. Willie Britz has been just as effective for the Sunwolves with 23 takes also while Brodie Retallick is the best of the New Zealand players with 18.

22: Ngani Laumape has beaten 22 defenders – four more than the next best in the competition.

2: If the finals were to happen today (after four rounds), the Jaguares would qualify in second spot.
