Interesting stat from Friday night

Watched the match highlights again this morning. An interesting stat put up by BT during the game was that Bath score an average of 17 points when the opposition are reduced to 14 men. They managed 21 against us!

I saw that too. Interesting when the accepted average per YC is 7. Looks like Bath do know how to capitalise on the extra man.

The 21 points Wasps shipped when down to 14 were at an average of 10.5 however.

I think they also said that Bath lead the rankings in that area.

Beat me to it. They did score 21, but that was over 2 periods. If the average is 17 points then we should have expected them to score 34!

As reported in today's Guardian, Todd Blackadder said that "Wasps kick from hand the least of all the Premiership teams".

And remember that in the previous game we scored 2 tries when we were down to 14. As with all stats, need to be in context to be meaningful.

17 points...over 10 mins. Would not have guessed that.

Itís certainly good to make the opponents pay for ill discipline. Iím convinced that some of the cynical play that deservedly get yellow cards is often not worth it from the offending teams perspective. Certainly not in the first 60 mins and clearly not a good idea versus Bath at anytime!!
