PRO Rugby POTW, Standings, & Scoring Leaders


It's time once again to check in on the PRO Rugby standings, attendance, scoring leaders, and name a player of the week.

Player of the Week: Paule Barford

We're going to cheat this week and not actually pick a player for our player of the week award. Instead we're picking a coach, specifically Ohio's Paule Barford. Whatever he has been feeding his team the last few weeks he needs to keep at it. The Aviators have had some stumbles this year, including a not so great performance against San Francisco, but other than that they have been rolling. They team has scored at least 100 more points than the rest of the competition and have more points than San Francisco and Sacramento combined! A lot of the credit for Ohio's strong form recently lies with Barford. He's given his team an us against them mentality that is working. Ohio fans should shutter to think what the season would have been like without Barford at the helm.

Take the jump to read more.

Standings

Ohio have taken over the top spot in the standings with 32 points, that's one better than Denver at this point after both teams won over the weekend. However, Denver have played one less match that the Aviators meaning that they are still favorites to finish first in the standings. One thing helping Ohio is their 8 bonus points to only 3 for Denver. That has made up for a whole match in the table and if they can keep it up and Denver slips again Ohio could win the league with more losses than Denver.

In the other end of the table San Diego stand alone in third and probably won't be caught. San Francisco and Sacramento are still at the bottom.

Attendance

As always, takes these numbers as our best estimates and not facts. As the summer has worn on attendance has dipped a bit and now sits at about 1800 per match. Denver had their second match at CIBER Field over the weekend and drew well while Ohio had an okay crowd at their latest home match. Sacramento and San Francisco still have three home matches while Denver and Ohio each have two.

Scoring Leaders

Kurt Morath is still the scoring leader in PRO Rugby despite not playing last weekend. He is still the only player to top 100 points this year. Behind Morath is San Francisco's Volney Rouse who is closely followed by Will Magie who had a big match for Denver. Then comes Shaun Davies and Mirco Bergamasco. Spike Davis is the first player to top the 10 try barrier and is the top non-kicker scorer in the competition.
