Who's scored everything ? do we have anybody in double figures yet?

As an addendum to Hugonaut's post, we've had 32 different players score tries for us this season, plus perennial fan favourite P Try has chipped in with two.

This is great, thanks!
Can I raise a practical question at this point? Are we gonna do "Stonehenge" tomorrow?

The days when P.Try was our top scorer seem long ago.

Luke owes Conan one of those 8. Was sure he'd be on the injury list after that.

Don't know - pen tries are not to be sneezed at.
They're indicative of an ability to really pile the pressure on in the kill zone.
Not something we've been particularly good at this season.
2/3 in the pen try box would be better.

OS, we are piling on the pressure in the killzone. .. by scoring tries. Loads and loads of tries.

I certainly have no nostalgia for 2014 when the only name on our scoresheet was frequently P. Try.
This is a barnstorming season. I reckon back threes must be dreading facing us.

Damn, now I'll have to go back and see who I gave the extra try to


Edit: Rob Kearney's total should be 1 and our old French mate Penaud Traille should be on 2 -apologies all

Yeah but that's the fancy dan stuff, I like to see a few PTs.
It reassures me that we're not slipping back into the soft boy days.

We have an extremely well performing pack. That's what gives the fancy Dan stuff so much space on the stage.

Luke McGraths first try v Scarlets a good example of the same scrum pressure yielding same result

Our maul though has been a bit patchy though

Yeah it's that atavistic, feral power surge that either yields a try directly or results in a PT that we need to see a bit more of.
It's the sort of thing you need in the armoury when the French or English forwards get uppity and try their bully boy tactics.
It's old school stuff for sure but it's still needed from time to time especially when the conditions might not suit fancy dan rugby.

We probably aren't "forcing" as many opposition players to be carded as back then either because we are converting the pressure.

Also Refs now call use it a lot earlier.
Ruddock's tackle stats consistently too low for me to be taken seriously as a Six Nations blindside..... Ruddock's defensive stats don't stack up. - All Blacks Nil, Jan 15th, 2014

I've watched back the game from last week twice. Nigel was awful, truly awful.
