Shute Shield: We break down all the stats after six rounds of the competition


The Shute Shield’s top tacklers, best ball carriers, turnover kings, ‘penalty Petes' and defender beaters have been named.

After six rounds West Harbour’s Connor Chittenden heads the list of top tacklers and also is on top of the list of defence beaters which backs the great faith that his coach Mark Gudmunson has in the young centre.

Tyson Davis from Warringah is the most consistent ball carrier in the competition on 70 carries so far this season, a good 10 carries ahead of his Rats teammate Mungo Mason.

Eastwood’s Tom Murphy has racked up the most turnovers so far this season with nine and he is being challenged by the Penrith duo of John Tuivaiti and Delahoya Manu, who moves between hooker and the back row.

Manly backrower Harry Bergelin (six) is the king of line out stealers from Randwick’s Nathan Den Hoedt (five) from Randwick and Jeremy Williams (four) from Eastern Suburbs.

The king of those who push the referees to the edge are head up by Warringah’s Sam Needs on 12 penalties conceded. It’s an honour he shares with Mark Ropati of Penrith and Kalafi Pongi of the Two Blues with Dave Puchert (11) not that far off the pace.

Here’s some of the stats from Opta.
