Who has impressed you the most?
The guys over at the The Rugby Net have once again done the all hard work, compiling all the stats from the first three rounds, putting them together into a rankings list so we can see who’s performing the best in each position. If we take all the individual scores for each player and rank them, it makes for an interesting top 5.
CJ Stander is currently way out in front, with 1570 points, over a hundred more than his nearest competitor- Joe Launchbury. The England and Wasps lock has formed a formidable pairing with Courtney Lawes this year who’s also on the list at number three.
Ireland’s Tadhg Furlong currently leads the way when it comes to props with 1310 points, furthering his case when it comes to the starting Lions test tighthead. Rounding off the list is Conor Murray with 1269 points.
