But when it comes to turnovers, the area in which Australia's David Pocock excels, Scottish skipper Brown is way out in front of his rivals. He has made seven turnovers in three games, while the next best is O'Brien on three.
Both Robshaw and Tipuric are in negative equity on the turnover count, but have made up for that fact by providing useful line-out possession. Robshaw also leads the way with by far the highest offloading game.
|Chris Robshaw||Justin Tipuric||Kelly Brown||Sean O'Brien|
|Turn Overs Won||1||0||7||3|
|Turn Overs Conceded||2||1||2||3|
|Line Outs Won||6||5||2||4|
The official RBS 6 Nations statistics also make interesting reading in other areas and highlight the fact that in five of the nine games played to date the team enjoying less territory and less time in possession has gone on to win the match.
