  • I think I’m misunderstanding the stats:
    Most tackles: Tim Whitehead (7)
    Most missed tackles: Tim Whitehead (6)

    If that is the case, then why doesn’t Tim feature in the worst tackle %? Or did Tim attempt 13 tackles overall, 6 of which he missed?

  • Definition of missed tackles – outright misses or ineffective tackles included?
