Top of the Premiership table for tackles this season to date; with 59 from 66 attempted. Pretty impressive work rate.

Not wishing to be negative, but the more tackles a team makes/attempts, is an indication that the opposition have the ball and you cannot score!

Interesting stats for Sione Kalamafoni carries (53) 2nd place; tackles ( 46) 2nd place and off loads (7) 3rd place.

That's an 89.4% success rate for Ludlow = impressive.

However, I do take GlawsyD's point. Let's retain the ball better, with much fewer turnovers conceded, and force the opposition to have to tackle our players.

I thought he missed quite a few last week esp 2nd half, is that reflected in the stats or am I mistaken?

Yes that's certainly reflected in the stats. Needs a 100 % tackle-count on Friday to pull the %'s back up again ! ;) :)

A very impressive player indeed, but I do hope that GR do not use it as an excuse to take the cash for RM.

Chalker I bet they will helps to shore up ailing finances. Methinks what the club miss is the fact if they got a winning side at home the crowds would sell CG out and the spin offs with ale and grub would follow ie more fans more cash therefore no need to off load players. Bit of a circle I know but if things on the pitch were good the rest would fall into place

I've seen all of Tigers matches so far and while he's carried a lot of ball, most of it has been pretty ineffective. He's a hard working player but I wouldn't swap him back for any of our current squad.
