The Best XV Of The Six Nations So Far Statistically Speaking

The stats don’t lie.. usually.

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.

Since the last round there’s been a few changes to the XV with the likes of Tadhg Furlong and Elliot Daly overtaking Dan Cole and Liam Williams respectively.

Interestingly Stuart Hogg has also been overtaken, with Mike Brown apparently the better player statistically after three rounds.

*The ratings are mathematically generated from a variety of objective criteria, meaning they aren’t simply an opinion of who is best, they are calculated by The Rugby Net Rating Engine. The Rating Engine takes in information (statistics, standings, match results, etc) and produces a rating for each player. For a full breakdown of the algorithm click here
