    Folau headlines S15 charts

    2014-03-06 11:39
    Cape Town - Wallabies and Waratahs fullback Israel Folau is the standout player after the first few rounds of Super Rugby.

    Folau's Waratahs lead the overall Super Rugby log after winning their first two home games with bonus points.

    They beat the Force 43-21 in their first game before thumping the Reds 32-5 last week.

    And the 24-year-old Folau, a former rugby league star, has been in red hot form.

    Not only has he scored the most tries (5) thus far in the competition, but his name pops up in several other player ranking categories listed on www.sanzarrugby.com.

    Folau has also made the most clean line breaks (6), one more than Sharks centre Paul Jordaan (5), and also tops the list for most offloads completed (9), ahead of Hurricanes scrumhalf  TJ Perenara (6). Sharks fullback SP Marais (5) is the closest South African behind Folau on that list.

    Folau is also second on the list for most metres gained (225), behind the Cheetahs' Willie le Roux (280) although it has to be noted that Le Roux has played one more game than Folau.

    Folau is joint-fourth with the Hurricanes' Ben Smith on the list for the most ball carries (27), behind Jurgen Visser (Bulls, 30), Willie Le Roux (Cheetahs, 32) and Jacques du Plessis (Bulls, 34) - who have all played one more game than Folau.

    EXPERT OPINION

    “Advantage is a great part of rugby, says Tank Lanning, but it allows for lots of personal interpretation, hence Victor Matfield’s tirade. ”
