Super Rugby 2013 kicked off in Australia over the weekend and the stats tell us that it was a drab start.
Jan Taljaard has again sent us his time for ball in play and both matches were well below average.
The two matches were Rebels vs Force in Melbourne and Brumbies vs Reds in Canberra.
15 minutes 25 seconds + 15 minutes 31 seconds = 30 minutes 56 seconds
Brumbies vs Reds (Lees): 13 minutes 34 seconds + 17 minutes 53 seconds = 31 minutes 27 seconds
Average: 31 minutes 12 seconds
Last weekend the matches with the ball in play longest were France vs Wales (38 minutes 54 seconds) and in the Varsity Cup, Tukkies vs Ikeys (39 minutes 47 seconds).
