PRO Rugby POTW, Standings, & Scoring Leaders


It's time once again to check in with the latest PRO Rugby standings, attendance, and scoring leaders as well as name our Player of the Week.

Player of the Week: Volney Rouse

San Francisco may not have won over the weekend falling to Denver but they put in arguably what was their best performance of the season. They got a lot of good performances in the match from the likes of Orene Ai'i but we were incredibly impressed with the effort of Volney Rouse. It was always thought that some players would use PRO Rugby to their advantage by getting better over the course of the season and Rouse is one of those players. Early on he was one of the better players for the Rush and now that they have improved results he's even more at the heart of the action.

Standings

Denver officially took back the top spot in the standing with their win over San Francisco last weekend. They have 46 points to Ohio's 42 setting up this weekend's big match. Denver can take him the title either with a win or by earning two bonus points. Elsewhere in the standings San Diego is looked into third place while San Francisco and Sacramento will battle to avoid the wooden spoon. San Francisco have a three point edge meaning Sacramento needs to win or finish level on points as they have the tie-breaker, which is the head to head results.

Attendance

Once again these numbers should come with a warning that these are estimates and not official numbers. Thanks to a decent crowd in Sacramento and a better crowd in San Francisco the PRO Rugby average pretty much held serve over the weekend around 1600. San Francisco finished their home stand with the lowest amount of fans but Denver and San Diego finished around 2000. Sacramento should also have a similar number. The league could also get a big boost this weekend with a packed house in Obetz.

Scoring Leaders

Kurt Morath still leads in our point scoring tally just five ahead of Volney Rouse. The odds are very high that Rouse overtakes Morath for the top spot this weekend. Will Magie is over 100 points and if he has a massive game against Ohio could make noise. Sebastian Kalm is still the top non-kicker in the point standings.

  1. Not quite sure how Sebastian Kalm is the top non-kicker points scorer, it should be Spike Davis.

  2. So the first tie-breaker is head to head results? While I do think that should be higher than points difference, the first tie-breaker really should be won-loss record. A 10-2 Denver with the same amount of points as a 9-3 Ohio should win a championship.
