PRO Rugby POTW, Standings, & Scoring Leaders

Photo: Colleen McCloskey
It's Wednesday so that means it's time once again to check in on PRO Rugby and name our Player of the Week.

Player of the Week: Sebastian Kalm

There were once again a lot of good candidates. Pedrie Wannenberg was outstanding for Denver, Phil Mackenzie was strong for San Diego, and Shaun Davies was superb for Ohio. However, for us it came down to Sebastian Kalm. The Santiago native and former Lindenwood player was everywhere on the pitch for Ohio in their big win over San Francisco. It wasn't just his two tries, which were excellent, but it was his general presence that made him so effective. He's a young player so he has a bright future ahead.

Standings

The standings are pretty straightforward. Denver now have a firm lead on the rest of the competition with three wins. They are a full seven points clear of both Ohio and San Diego. At the same time it's important to remember that Denver are only a fourth of the way through their season while Ohio and Denver are only a sixth of the way through. It's still very early.

Take the jump to read more.

Ohio are the highest scoring team at the moment thanks to their big win over San Francisco. They are at 32 points a game. Sacramento aren't far behind at 30.5 per game. The difference is that Ohio have only given up 33 points. Purely on point totals Denver is the best defensively team at 15.6 per game.

For San Francisco the main difference between winning and losing has been their defense. They have given up a league high 123 points. Their 60 points is only 13 behind Denver's over three matches but Denver has only given up 47. In comparison, San Francisco is giving up 41 points a match.

Scoring & Try Scoring Leaders

San Diego's Kurt Morath continues to lead the scoring chart with 26 points but Volney Rouse and Will Magie aren't far behind. Then there is Shaun Davies, JP Eloff, and Mirco Bergamasco. On the try scoring side of things seven players are tied with two tries each. No one has yet to fully separate themselves from the rest of the pack.

  1. Thanks for the updates in PRO Rugby. Is there any way we could get the team names listed with each of the players for this section. I'm still trying to figure out who is playing for who and it would be a huge help. Thanks!
