Joe from Planet R wrote
how do I see all of the 3 nations results rather than a yearly summary from clicking on the trophy?
Hi Joe - You must enter something in one of the 4 blue boxes on the grey selection panel which is common to all of those teams; in this case Southern Hemisphere "SH" will do it (like this).
For summarised match results, there must always be something in one or more of those blue boxes. Hope this helps.

GREAT SITE !!! I was searching for it since a long time.
just a question: what does mean "AI", "ST", "TO" and "H," "N", "A" in column "adv" ?
And "pnts" ? ... in fact, is there any guide to the p&g terms ?
Anyway keep the good job done !
Bonjour Nic. AI is "Autumn International", ST is "Tour to Southern Hemisphere", TO is "Tour". The adv col signifies where the match is played - "Home", "Away", or "Neutral". "Pnts" are explained on the FAQ's page.

Excellent and very useful site. Pity about the player stats as that would certainly enhance the uselfulness of this site. But it is not easy to get the stats so I understand why you don't have them. Still, some financial backing, maybe . . .
I run this site as a hobby in my spare time and maintaining player stats would put too greater demand on that at present.

Do you have the results of the 2004 Super 12 available, or where could i find them.
Hi Mike. Yes, Pick & Go contains match results for every Super12/14 match played. The quickest way to get results for a period is to select the table for that year e.g. 2004, then by clicking on a column link you can zoom to the stats screen (All matches)

I wonder if you have come accross any other data for Super 12/14 games, like Territory and Posession statistics, missed tackles, etc. I ask this, because I really wonder where you found the tries data for Super 12 matches as early as 1996?
As you've probably noticed, the early years of Super 12 were not well organised, including the recording of results. Luckily I managed to get access to old copies of "Rugby News" at The NZ Rugby Museum here in Palmerston North. These covered NZ home games quite well but I still found conflicting reports/totals for overseas fixtures and in some cases had to deduce them from the end-of-season counts. As far as territory/possession stats go, best of luck Christoff!

I don't pretend to have as much data as rugbydata.com and have no current plans to expand.

Pete Gosford from Christchurch wrote
I like your super 14 rankings but I'm surprised that the Crusdaers aren't further ahead over all given that they have won half of the competitions since super rugby started?
Hi Pete. Two reasons I think -
1) A teams current position is influenced predominantly by the previous 4 or 5 games and given their poor finish at the end of last year, the Crusaders had a bit of ground to make up
2) The 10 point margin constraint means that all teams are really destined to stay between 70 and 90 points. Once a team gets near 90, the relative points gained from a win will diminish (and is often zero) and a loss, especially at home, causes them to fall back amongst the rest of the pack very quickly. Of course this is not as apparent in the official IRB rankings because each team isn't playing every other team in a fixed competition format.

The virtual trophy has then passed to the winner (or holder in the event of a draw) down through the ages to the present day. NZ has won the trophy the most times and as at January 2009, currently hold it. For more details see this website or join the facebook group (which might even make the trophy real one day).
You can display the Raeburn Shield results via hidden commands on the pick&go home site URL e.g.

Every result:http://www.lassen.co.nz/pickandgo.php?custom=RS
Results for one country:http://www.lassen.co.nz/pickandgo.php?custom=RS&teama=NZL
One country against another:http://www.lassen.co.nz/pickandgo.php?custom=RS&teama=NZL&teamb=AUS
Northern Hemisphere v Southern Hemisphere:http://www.lassen.co.nz/pickandgo.php?custom=RS&hema=SH&hemb=NH

To see other combinations, just amend the command line. Any questions, please ask.

Great site but I could not change the results even with all my imaginary scores. The Blues have the blues this year "again". Great to see my other team the Chiefs going so well, it might be their year. Here's hoping.
Yes, the Blues have been decidedly average this year - some of the decision making has been very poor; kicks from hand etc. Actually, it's a pet grievance of mine at the moment - Why do attacking sides opt to kick the ball away so often? Surely they must realise that the chances of a lucky bounce or the opposition dropping it are at best slim? Nine times out of ten all it does is turn good possession over!

Why was the Dave Gallaher trophy played for twice this year? Your site says it should only be up for grabs in the first test of each year.
Warren
TBH, I don't know how the rules work for some of these trophies. The IRB or the RFUs concerned seem to change them at will, presumably to generate more interest. Because it was a two match series this year, someone decided both games would count and France ended up winning the trophy on points difference (5 points in Dunedin vs 4 points in Wellington). As it turned out, I think it was the right result as France won the first game more convincingly than the ABs won the second.

Hi. Last weekend all 5 of the New Zealand teams won their matches, 4 of them scoring 4-try bonus points in the process. Is this a record in Super rugby for any country?
Great site by the way, top of my favorites list! Cheers.
Interesting question Graham. There is only a small window each season when all teams from a country are playing and not against each other so yes, I think 24 comp points is a record. In 2006, the Kiwi teams won all 5 (also in Round 3), but not with as many bonus points. South African teams won 4/5 in a couple of rounds in 2007 but so far have never managed a clean sweep.

If you mean the grey search box(es), then not easily - you'd have to write some sort of form to handle the input and pass it to p&g.
However... most of p&g's result pages can be invoked by adding parameters on the url of the home site www.lassen.co.nz/pickandgo.php or www.lassen.co.nz/s14tab.php etc.
As you mouse over the numerous links in the site, each url will be displayed in the border of the browser (or on the command line if you click on the link) e.g.
  
Feel free to add any of these as links in your blogs etc
e.g. cutting & pasting the following HTML would link to the Bulls Team history page just as if a user had clicked on the link above:

Looking at the new black bar on the relative rankings matrix, I'm still pinching myself. It was green or yellow for so long, I find it hard to believe it could ever be Black!!
I know what you mean. I was lucky enough to go to the final and even though I saw it with my own eyes, I still can't believe that we've actually won the thing! Because it was such a close match, it seems even more surreal.

I went through your superrugby ranking points tables and noticed that you did not take into account the Crusaders did not have home adv when they played the Sharks in London. Did you do this on purpose? I'd say the game was played at a neutral venue.
Hmmm, it's a tricky one - you could also argue that the Crusaders final "home" game at The Cake Tin against the Canes was an away game... but doing so would throw the whole home/away totals out of whack.

The points exchange ranking system makes a teams most recent matches influence their current position the most. The Canes had a very strong final 4 games including beating the Crusaders away and the Champion Chiefs at home ergo their late charge up the rankings. Other teams who finished the conference stage higher than the Canes e.g. Reds and Bulls subsequently lost their playoff matches so moved back down the rankings accordingly. As you say, not a perfect system.

Unless they've melted it down, I''ve assumed that the ARU still hold the 3N trophy. If (when) AUS win their first Rugby Champoinship, it will replace the 3N in their P&G cabinet.

How come the English think they can move up to second in the world by scoring four tries against the All Blacks?
I'm not sure where this story came from but in short, they can't! The ranking calcs don't take number of tries into account. To score the maximum ranking points England would have to beat the ABs by 15 points or more... but even then they wouldn't pass SAF in the rankings? Either bad journalism or wishful thinking by Stuart Lancaster.

It would be easier to understand if it was ordered by current ranking, but it looks like some other ordering is hard-coded?
The ranking matrix isn't sorted Andre. It is designed to be read left-to-right with each country in the same position relative to each other. The number in brackets indicates that teams position at that time. Incidentally, during development I tried colouring each square and sorting it by rank but it looked like a pigs breakfast and in my opinion was much harder to read than the current format.

Hi Anton.
That’s an interesting one which I haven’t looked at before – the win percentage actually comes out at 56.5% across the 3 conferences since SupeRugby started. The South African teams are the most successful following their byes with the Bulls, Sharks, & Stormers all having won 7 out of the 8 games they’ve played – pretty impressive!
Full analysis can be found here. Cheers.

Great question Allan.

In 2011 they lost to the Reds but scored 4 tries to 1, then in 2012 they lost to the Bulls but somehow scored 5 tries to 2?

The number on the form column represents how well each team has played in their past 5 matches. Points are awarded for wins and deducted for losses. Away wins are worth more, home losses cost more and recent form carries more weight than older games. Ultimately the number dictates where the team appears if the table is sorted by pressing on the form heading.

Hi, I was just wondering how you calculate your Form Index on the Super Rugby Table (e.g. Saders have an FI of 71 while the Lions have 74). I haven't found anything in the FAQ

Wondering how difficult it would be to add referees to your database? Wondering how the ABs gi with certain refs... i.e., Barnsey ... thanks if possible (a lot of information that may not be available). Cheers Iain
We all know that refs are impartial so don't see the need :-)

Great site! Comparing my Raeburn Shield stats from inputting data from scrum.com into Excel I discovered difference for game between France/Italy on 17 Feb 1985 that France won 22-9. It's not in scrum.com. Correct?
yep... Raeburn Shield results for France in 1985

Thanks for the statistics - but where are the full coaching records? Other than that, this site is my go to site for statistics.
