Also, what isn't reflected in those stats (very good job BTW with them Jay M) is how much scrambling and covering for each other is happening on the right edge if someone does miss a tackle compared to the left edge defense.Thompson with 49 and 1 missed on the edge - that's also pretty rad...
Hoffman 23 made with 4 ineffective and 1 missed on the other edge - not so rad...
Actually really good thought I just had...
Johnson - 17 tackles, 2 missed
Thompson - 49 tackles, 1 missed
Ayshford - 16 tackles, 2 missed
Fusitua - 8 tackles, 1 ineffective
Leuluai - 10 tackles, 5 ineffective, 2 missed
Hoffman - 23 tackles, 4 ineffective, 1 missed
Kata - 5 tackles, 1 ineffective, 1 missed
Wright - 4 tackles, 2 ineffective, 2 missed
They were really hitting our right edge hard. Basically twice as hard as our left edge. And yet all the tries were scored on the left.
Big props to the right edge. Wicked defensive display. Probably won the game with no tries conceded down that channel...
