In Parts 2.1, 2.2 and 2.3 – The Rugby Championship & Bledisloe Cup, we isolate the same 'Rucks Per Try' stat for each of the All Blacks' tries scored against Argentina, Australia and South Africa during the competition.
This video looks at Rounds 5, 6 and the final Bledisloe Cup test against Australia. In total, 13 tries scored across 3 games from 33 rucks for an average of 2.5 rucks per try.
- Across all 7 Rugby Championship and Bledisloe Cup matches, they scored 28 tries over 74 rucks/phases (at an average of 2.6 rucks per try scored);
- 17 tries came from turnovers over 45 rucks (an average of 2.6 rucks per try scored); and
- 11 tries came from set-piece possessions over 29 rucks (also an average of 2.6 rucks per try).
Stay tuned for NZ's final campaign of 2013, in Part 3, the End of Year Tour, played against Japan, France, England and Ireland. Can they make a dent in the All Blacks strike rate?
