Some of the most interesting data concerns the upturn in tries scored in the 2014 Six Nations, the influence of a strong defence, scrum and lineout and some of the main reasons why Ireland ended up lifting the title. This was not only the lowest average in Six Nations history, but the lowest in the 18 years since the game went professional in 1995.
There were 61 tries scored in the 2014 Six Nations, producing an average of 4.1 tries per match - a level last reached in 2007. The tournament proved once again that tries still remain the most significant element in winning matches. In 2014, almost 75% were won by the team scoring the most tries, in three matches the try count was the same and in only one match did the team scoring the fewest number of tries win (Scotland v France).
This contrasts with Scotland and Italy who, in total, conceded four times as many tries as Ireland and England. This happened in both 2013 and 2014 where Wales headed the tables in both collapses and sanctions. This year, for example, when Wales played there were 67% more collapses than when Italy played and almost three times more scrum penalties as Ireland's matches.
In the 10 matches not involving Wales, there were 32% fewer collapses and half the number of penalties and free kicks. The Munster Crusaders host round three of the Irish Wheelchair Rugby interprovincial league this Saturday, 3rd October at Little Island Sports Complex in Cork.
