Who headed the offloads?

BRAD Takairangi, bound for Wests Tigers in 2015, finished fourth in the NRL with offloads (44). The best was Brisbane’s Corey Parker with 64.

Another interesting individual stat was Greg Bird’s aggressive defence caused more turnovers than any other player in the game. His tackles forced 14 lost possessions, equal with Penrith’s Adam Docker, even though Birdy only played 17 games.

However one stat that will have rookie of the year Paul Carter working hard on his discipline in 2015, is that he was third in the NRL when it came to penalties conceded with 22, behind only Penrith’s James Segeyaro (26) and Rooster Jared Waerea-Hargreaves (26).

Carter however was second in the league with five charge downs, one behind Sharks halfback Jeff Robson.
