    RWC stats overall

    Been looking at the RWC stats overall and noted some predictable, and some odd facts.

    In overall RWC matches:
    most games played NZ 32 [2nd AUS 30]
    most points NZ 1460 [2nd AUS 1078]
    most tries NZ 195 [2nd AUS 135]
    most conversions NZ 146 [2nd AUS 103]

    Yes - they still have the best pedigree.

    Odd facts
    Most penalties conceded ENG 101 [2nd FRA 90]
    most drop goals ENG 14 [2nd SAF 12](anyone suprised?)
    most yellow cards FRA 5 [2nd TNG 4]
    most red cards CAN 3 [2nd SAF 2](that surprised me)

    I've only been watching Rugby for a few years now, did they give a lot less yellow cards back in the day??? 5 as a team over 5 world cups seems quite low. Some teams will probably come out of this cup with 4 or 5 just in the one go.

    Well, from watching you'd think so gustafl, but I really feel most refs are pretty reluctant to reach into their pockets at the RWC. So, you may not see them presented.
    I think in past cups, yes, there were less cardable incidents. That may have a lot to do with the speed and style of play, rather than blatant infringement.
