In an excellent interview with Jamie George in today’s Times (sorry - paywall, or I’d paste the link), there is a table showing that David Paice has the 3rd best success rate in line-out throws in the Premiership, behind George and Scott Lawson, in a field of 18 hookers who have 50 or more throws in. Can’t reproduce the whole table, but the top 5 are:

Jamie George 95.4%
Scott Lawson 94.8%
David Paice 94.4%
Rob Webber 93.0%
Tom Dunn 90.7%

Interestingly in the England hooker debate context, Dylan Hartley is 15th with 84.8%... (Sm113)

I often think that Paice is massively under-appreciated for the stuff he does really well - 94.4% is a phenomenal achievement...! (Sm152)- and one could easily get the impression that LI’s lineout has been a bit ‘meh’ this season.

So - nowt wrong with that part of our game then!

I’m sure on the coverage of the Worcester game the stats showed us to have the best line out in the league.
