Player Stats

Top Metre Gainers

It’s not unusual to have three or four players make over 100 metres in a match, but to have six – four of whom play in the forwards – is a true sign of the return to form of the Rabbitohs’ forwards. Greg Inglis again topped the chart with 220 metres, while Sam narrowly missed out on a double-tonne.

Greg Inglis – 220m (16 runs)

Sam Burgess – 192m (27 runs)

George Burgess – 130m (16 runs)

Chris McQueen – 121m (15 runs)

Dylan Walker – 119m (13 runs)

Luke Burgess – 106m (13)

 

Top Tacklers

Sam and George weren’t just busy in the yardage stakes though, with the pair taking top honours in this week’s tackle-count. But an honourable mention must be made of debutant Cameron McInnes, who got his first grade career off to a flying start with 21 tackles in 34 minutes.

Sam Burgess – 37

George Burgess – 30

Apisai Koroisau – 28

Ben Te’o – 27

 

Top Tackle Breaks

Inglis is making this top spot his very own. The Kangaroos fullback/centre consistently hovers around 10 tackle breaks per match, and with a fend that has opposition defences constantly thinking twice, it’s little wonder. Inglis made a huge break during the second half of the match that saw him viciously swat three Dragons defenders in quick succession.

Greg Inglis – 10

Ben Te’o – 5

Apisai Koroisau – 4

George Burgess – 4

Sam Burgess – 4

Luke Burgess – 4

 

Spotlight – John Sutton

Round five had so much for Rabbitohs Members to proud of, but without doubt the most important stat – other than the final score – was John Sutton’s breaking of the Club’s all-time appearance record. Sutton is now one game ahead of Bob McCarthy on 212 games in the red and green.

Spotlight – Greg Inglis

Inglis is among the Rabbitohs’ most consistent performers each week – regularly topping the metres chart, as well as being quite adept at bagging points. It’s the fullback’s presence though that brings so much to this Rabbitohs line-up.
