With the South African teams not having the best start to this years Super Rugby competition lets take a few minutes and see which of the teams and individuals have impressed the most after 9 rounds.

South African games taking place this weekend includes, the 6th place Cheetahs traveling to Durban to take on the 5th place Sharks and the 7th place Bulls will play the 13th placed Southern Kings in Port Elizabeth. The Stormers currently in 11th place will have a bye before traveling to New Zealand next week.

Patrick Lambie and Morne Steyn are both among the top points scores in 3rd place, both on 97 points. Joe Peterson is in 5th place on 89 and Demetri Catrikilis is in 10th place on 76 points. Gareth Anscombe from the Chiefs is currently the top points scorer on 110.

The top South African try scores are all on 3 tries each, Gio Aplon and Andries Bekker from the Stormers, Raymond Rhule from the Cheetahs and Sergeal Petersen from the Kings.

The Cheetahs have scored the most tries of the South African teams with 18 in total followed by the Kings on 16 and the Sharks, Bulls and Stormers all on 13. The Chiefs and Blues are currently in front with 23 each.

Pieter Labuschagne from the Cheetahs has made the most tackles of all the teams, 140 followed by Wimpie van der Walt of the Kings on 110. The other top tacklers are all from the Cheetahs, Phillip van der Walt is 3rd on 104, Francois Uys is 6th on 93 and Robert Ebersohn is 7th on 90.

The Southern Kings are the best defending team on 90.7%, the Cheetahs are 3rd on 88.4, Sharks are 7th with 87.7, Bulls in 9th with 86% and the Stormers are currently the worse South African defending team with Australia’s Brumbies on 83.6%.

The Kings have concede the most tries from the South African teams with 24 followed by the Cheetahs 19, Bulls 16, Sharks 10 and Stormers 9. Interesting the see that the Stormers are the worst defending team but conceded the least amount of tries, suppose they making the tackles when it counts and the Kings the best defenders or at least making the most of their tackles but conceded the most tries. The team that’s conceded the most tries overall are the Rebels with 33.

Interesting weekend end ahead for the South African team, if the Sharks lose against the Cheetahs they could drop as low as 3rd in the conference, if the Bulls pick up a win against the Kings in Port Elizabeth.
