Guinness PRO14 Team Rankings After Four Rounds

Where does your team rank?

We’re currently four round into the inaugural Guinness PRO14 with round five set to commence this afternoon as Ospreys take on the Cheetahs. A number of teams are already starting to show some form and this is reflected in the team rankings.

Munster have an impressive 97% success rate in the scrum, especially when you consider their first choice front-row has been held back until this weekend. Scarlets lead the way with a 95% lineout success rate. Good news once again for Munster fans when you consider Tadhg Beirne has played a huge part in that and is set to join the southern province next season according to reports.

Ulster are another team that have been flying high this season, with a perfect record so far. A lot of that can be attributed to their ability to make clean breaks (57) which has resulted in an incredible 2272 metres gained.
