PRO Rugby POTW, Standings, & Scoring Leaders


It's time once again to check in on PRO Rugby standings, attendance, scoring leaders, and name our Player of the Week. There was only one match last weekend and there will be only one this weekend but there was still movement in several categories. Additionally, this will be the only time until the end of the season that all teams have played the same number of matches and it just happens to be the halfway point.

Player of the Week: Will Magie

We could have given this week's award to Kurt Morath who almost single-footedly (see what we did there) kicked San Diego to a win over Denver. However, there was no other choice this week than to give it to Denver's Will Magie for his excellent kick down pitch that Martin Knoetze recovered for what became the winning try. It was a phenomenal kick and exemplified how much Magie has grown just this season in terms of his awareness and playmaking ability. Magie is getting is first run of steady game time for awhile and it's paying lots of dividends for himself personally and for Denver.

Standings

No changes in the standings this week except that Denver increased their lead. They now have more than a bonus point win advantage over San Diego. The loss for San Diego has to sting because if they would have won they would have taken over the top spot. Ohio are the next closest side but they are ten points in back of Denver.

Attendance

Of San Diego's six matches, five have been at home, by far the most in PRO Rugby. So far the attendance has been good although the crowd showed some fatigue over the weekend with their lowest showing yet. These numbers should come with the usual disclaimer that almost all of the numbers are estimates.

With an 18 point display Kurt Morath has increased his lead at the top of the scoring chart. He's now nearly 20 points clear of Volney Rouse and he could top the 100 point mark this weekend in Ohio. Will Magie also added to his total and moved ahead of Mirco Bergamasco for third place. Sebastian Kalm, who leads the league with 7 tries, is the top non-kicker on the points leader board.
