MATTER OF STATS: Zysk the BRL's 100th point-scorer in 2016
RAYMOND Zysk became the Bundaberg Rugby League's 100th point scorer of the season when he scored for Easts Magpies today.
The prop's four-pointer was one of nine Magpies tries in the 46-12 victory over Isis Devils, which also pushed Easts up to fifth spot.
Easts, who passed 100 points for the season in the 34-point win (which is their biggest winning margin of the season), scored more than 20 points in a game for the first time this season.
It was also the Magpies' best defensive game so far.
For Isis, their rough season continued as they limped past 100 points.
The winless Devils are scoring 17.6 points per game, but concede a whopping 48.6 points per game.
Isis is conceding more than the Waves Tigers did on their way to last year's wooden spoon.
Waves had scored only 32 points (5.6 per game) but conceded 262 (43.6) at the same time last year.
Isis have a far superior scoring rate than Waves did last year, but have to get their defence sorted as soon as possible to turn their season around.
Speaking of Waves, they passed the 150-point mark in their 42-18 win over Wallaroos.
The Tigers, who are now fourth on the BRL ladder, are scoring at a rate of 25.6ppg - the third-best in the competition.
It was the worst defensive effort by Wallaroos so far, though the 30ppg they concede is remarkably similar to their overall performance last year (30.1ppg).
At Stafford Park, Hervey Bay Seagulls became the last team to concede 100 points in their 30-22 win over Wests Panthers.
At 16.8pp, the Seagulls boast the best defence in the competition.
Their concerns come from when they have possession, as the 22.6 points they score per game is fifth-best in league.
The Panthers passed the 200-point mark in the game when Tyson Whaleboat scored.
Wests are the second-best attackers in the competition. They currently average 34.3ppg, which is slightly better than last year's 31ppg.
Past Brothers had the bye, but they remain the competition's best attackers.
They have scored 233 points this year (38.83ppg), conceded 116 (19.3, second-best), and still managed to win the only time they were held to less than 20 points (13-12 v Seagulls, round one).
