Oh, of course the bare figures don't tell the whole story, but they are still useful. I imagine for coaches these days, it's all about the GPS.
Well it shouldn’t be, Morley is right the coach needs to form an opinion on the game and the performance of players.

Not sure that's what I was saying, Chariots.

I'm a great believer in stats (as is every professional coach). What goes wrong is when they're misinterpreted - and I don't mean by confusing Marker Tackles with Missed Tackles! John Monie's point illustrates this: the stat giving Offiah 1 missed tackle is correct/fact. The coach needs to interpret it correctly in the context of what a tally happened in the game.

I think that was what I was trying to say 🙂

It's worth looking at the Stats Key at the bottom of the page!

I know! I did!
