PRO Rugby POTW, Standings, & Scoring Leaders

Photo: Megan Messerly
It's time to check in again with the PRO Rugby standings, attendance, and scoring leaders as well as name our Player of the Week. After one match last weekend things get busier this weekend with a match each on Saturday and Sunday.

Player of the Week: Dominic Waldouck

How many players get to score a hat-trick on their debut? Not many but Dom Waldouck did just that for Ohio in their big win over San Diego. The former Wasps, Northampton, and London Irish man was all over the pitch for the Aviators scoring three big tries and making things happen in other parts of the pitch. He's the perfect player for Ohio at the moment. He's not flashy and comes with his lunch pail every match. It's that workman-like attitude that has been Ohio's trademark all season and Waldouck took it to another level. We also could have chosen Alex Elkins who had a fantastic match for Ohio but this one is deservedly Waldouck's.

Standings

There was some movement in the table this week with Ohio moving into second place ahead of San Diego. Both teams are tied on 22 points but Ohio's point differential is greater than San Diego's. In fact, thanks to their third straight 50 point performance at home Ohio have the most points in the competition and have the highest point differential. They have earned a bonus point in each of their matches. After their loss San Diego is not getting up there with San Francisco and Sacramento in terms of points given up.

The biggest winner from last week was Denver even though they didn't play. They now have a full five point lead over both Ohio and San Diego as well as a game in hand on each team. Just a few more matches and they could clinch the competition.

Attendance

As always you need to take these attendance numbers with some suspicion. Many of these numbers are pure guesses on our part and could be off. Denver and Sacramento still lead the competition in attendance with over 2000 per match. The good news for the league is that Denver have four more home matches remaining (although they have moved to CIBER Field at Denver University) and Sacramento have three more matches. San Diego finish out their home schedule this week.
