MATTER OF STATS: Triple figure milestones the key theme

MATTER of Stats is back for another season of Bundaberg Rugby League.

The weekly column looks at the numbers that make up the BRL after each week: try and point scorers, attacking and defensive milestones, and other random stats.

Triple figures appears to be the theme this week.

Two sides passed 100 total points for the season, one side passed the same mark for points conceded, and the competition saw its 100th try.

Past Brothers became the first club to score 100 points this season as they beat Waves Tigers 30-10.

The 20-point win not only kept their unbeaten record intact, but also saw the BRL's top tryscoring team (21 tries so far) continue to dominate the stat sheet.

Brothers five-eighth Quentin Olive scored his seventh try of the season to maintain his position as the competition's top tryscorer.

The Tigers scored their 50th point of the season but the win-less Waves have struggled to put their attack together on the field.

They're scoring at just 17.3 points per game, a far cry from their hugely successful 2016 season in which they averaged 37.8 points per game.

Hervey Bay Seagulls were the second team to pass the 100-point mark with one Komiti Vetemotu goal the difference between the clubs.

The Seagulls' season tally moved to 104 points (Brothers have scored 102) in their tight 28-20 win over Isis Devils.

It was in this game the BRL's 100th try of the season was scored.

The official mark at the end of the game was 103, meaning one of the eight tryscorers was responsible for the lucky meat pie.

Vetemotu's 16 goals has the Seagulls fullback placed second in terms of point-scoring.

Olive's seven tries and three goals has the Past Brothers pivot in the lead on 34, with Vetemotu second on 32 points.

Wallaroos' hooker Jack Horder is third on 28 points (two tries, 10 goals).

Horder scored 10 points in his side's eight-point win over Maryborough Brothers at Stafford Park.

The game not only saw Wallaroos register their first win of the season, but Maryborough Brothers became the first team to concede 100 points.

The newly-promoted side, which is still finding its groove in the top grade, conceded 34 points in a game for the second time this year - remarkable given there's only been three games.

Wallaroos, Easts Magpies and Wests Panthers boast identical defence records.

All three have conceded 78 points (26 per game) so far, but Wests were on the right side of the scoreboard on two occasions (Wallaroos won one, drew one; Easts won one).

Their difference is attack.

Wests have scored 83 points, Wallaroos have recorded 76 points and Easts only 44 (14.6 per game).
