PRO Rugby POTW, Standings, & Scoring Leaders


Player of the Week: Chad London

Denver have had a lot of strong performances for a lot of different players this year. Depending on the game it seems like a new one has stepped up to keep their record perfect. For us that player last weekend was Chad London. He's really grown as a player the last few years and he has a lot of value for Denver. He did score two tries against San Francisco but it was his overall play that really impressed us, enough to be named our Player of the Week.

Standings

There is only a slight change in the standings after last weekend. Ohio move up into second place over San Diego thanks to their win over Sacramento. San Diego have a game in hand. Denver still lead the competition and are 5-0. They have this weekend off but if they win next weekend they will have gone halfway through the season without a loss.

Take the jump to read more.

Ohio continue to lead the league in scoring with 165 points or 33 points a game. It should come as no surprise that they have picked up five bonus points. They also have the best defense at 85 points given up or 17 points per match. Denver and Sn Diego are close in defense while Denver are close to Ohio in offense. Sacramento has scored the least points this year while San Francisco have given up the most.

Attendance

Ohio and Denver both had their second home matches of the season. Denver drew the same as their opening weekend while Ohio was down a bit. The league average is still just about 2000. There are home matches for San Diego and San Francisco this weekend. Of course this section would be amiss not to mention that Denver are moving to CIBER Field at Denver University.

Leading Scorers

Kurt Morath remains a top of the scoring charts even though he and San Diego didn't play last weekend. The gap shrunk quite a bit after a big game from Volney Rouse. He's now only four points behind. Will Magie is third with Mirco Bergamasco next. In terms of try scoring Sebastian Kalm and Spike Davis each have five tries. David Tameilau has four. It then gets bunched up.
