Six Nations 2014 Preview
Six Nations 2014 Preview avatar

In this report we look back at last year’s 6 Nations tournament and what the Stats could tell us for this year’s teams.

For part of the discussion we will use AGFX.TV’s MVP Index as a performance indicator.

This is built up from a players action’s during a match, with each action being given a weighting based on the importance of that action.

It’s not a perfect tool, but it does give an indication of a player’s participation in the match and their contribution to the team effort.

As can be seen above the players with the highest overall MVP played the majority of the Tournament in accumulating their score.

Picamoles (France) only missed 12 minutes of the tournament and Scored 2 tries, carried 67 times, offloaded 9 times, made 6 breaks, won 2 lineouts and made 32 tackles amongst his actions on the way to scoring the highest MVP.

Halfpenny (Wales) was named Player of the Torunament, and played every minute of last year’s championship, Scoring 1 try, kicking 19 penalties and 6 conversions. He made 30 carries, 1 break and 14 tackles amongst his duties to earning the accolade.

However, if we look at what a player did based on an average of 80m, then Toby Flood rises to the top of the chart, with 7 penalty goals and 0 misses at goal, 13 carries, 2 offloads, 2 breaks and 14 tackles in his 125 minutes of play.

France

As Picamoles has come top of the MVP Index, I thought we would start with France.

The first thing to note was France’s Lineout.

Yoann Maestri was pretty much a constant in their lineout, but after Pascal Pape’s injury in the first game, they never got a settled compatriot for Maestri. There was almost a different pairing in each game, and they tried 6 different locks in total during last year’s Six Nations.

Maestri took 12 lineouts, whilst 5 others contributed 4 or 5 lineouts each, including Fulgence Ouedraogo and Yannick Nyanga, which shows they use the height they have at the back of the line quite a bit. Maybe this year they will get their lineout working as they lost 12 of their 62 set lineouts last year.

Picamoles is by far their biggest carrier of the ball, with 67 carries, 9 offloads and 6 breaks.

However, they do have options down the middle too, with Fofana, Bastareaud, and Huget all contributing.

Dusautoir’s defensive work is what seems to leave the likes of Picamoles and Bastareaud the time and energy to be the carriers in the team.

Will the Captain’s absence be filled by a similar player?

As can be seem from above and when compared against France, the Italians are beginning to build a bit of confidence in attacking out wide. Although Parisse isn’t as big a carrier as Picamoles, the Italians look to keep the continuity going with offloads in and around the base of scrums and rucks.

There is no outstanding defensive enforcer like Dusautoir, but everyone puts a shift in.

There are missed tackles in the middle of the field which could be an area to expose.

Ryan won 24 of Ireland’s 55 successful lineouts.

O’Connell, who missed last year’s 6 nations, is back in the squad to hopefully fill the lineout gap that will be missing.

But O’Brien is a big loss to Ireland, and even with some great flankers coming through, will they be up to O’Brien’s standard?

Not only is he England’s highest MVP, he is also England’s highest carrier and their 2nd highest Tackler.

Although Robshaw is their highest carrier by some way, the spread of the carriers from backrow to centres to back three, show England have attacking potential in abundance, but Mike Brown, and possibly Manu Tuilagi seem to be their main creative attack.

Robshaw and the backs also seem to want to play a continuity game, whilst their other main carriers, seem to want to go to ground.

England’s defence is strong, with not only the backrow putting in a shift, but also the boiler room boys, and front row willing to get into those defensive situations.

Is this down to possession or are the opposition trying to take England on upfront?

There are a lot of high numbers in the tackles made here, but I assume this is down to the lack of possession and the other teams attacking Scotland.

Although both centres have the highest tackle count for any backs in last year’s Six Nations (the nearest is Brad Barritt with 29) they have also missed 15 tackles between them.

Fullback as main attacking threat?

From the figures above, we can see that Hogg is Scotland’s main attacking influence, but this is from fullback.

Will Scotland look at his outside half performances on the Lions to possibly bring closer to the action?

There is a good spread of jumpers for their 42 winning lineouts out of their 49 set lineouts.

But they are also competing at the lineout with Jim Hamilton having stolen the most lineouts in the tournament, and the other jumpers also contributing to a total of 9 stolen lineouts

Scotland’s front row accounted for 26 of the team’s penalties last year. Not all of these would have been at the scrimmage, but it will be an area of concern for them.

Leigh Halfpenny was crowned player of the Tournament last year, so it makes sense for him to be sitting as Wales’ highest MVP. Faletau’s contribution can’t be ignored, and Cuthbert’s 4 tries obviously helped him.

What is also interesting is that even though Alun Wyn Jones missed 2 of the games, he still comes 6th in the rankings, whilst Ken Owens never started a game last season, only coming on as sub, but still managed to come 10th in Wales’ MVP.

Also Wales’ captain Sam Warburton, came in at 11th with an average tournament by his standards. Could he be back to form this year?

Falatau is obviously the main carrier in the team, but what is noticeable here is that the Welsh backs love to carry the ball, and the fact that North and Cuthbert are up there shows that the ball is getting to the wings and the fullback, as well as the half backs and centres contributing.

As is expected the second rows are contributing the most to our lineout, but we do have very good options at the back of the line too.

As well as contributing in the Lineout, Ian Evans tackling in last year’s tournament was a huge help in Wales retaining the championship. Can Alun Wyn Jones perform the same defensive duties?

Also noticeable here is that Alex Cuthbert, who is usually questioned on his defence, made 20 tackles last year with only 1 missed tackle.

Wales have a pretty good discipline record with the front row only contributing 11 of the 40 penalties they conceded. Scotland conceded 65 penalties, Ireland 58, Italy 56, England 54 and France 45.

We will need to keep this standard if we are get the record breaking 3 consecutive championship.
