The number of kicks in play made by the Ciel et Blanc, in TOP 14 this season. A statistic of 457 kicks in play, or an average of 23 per match, essentially made by the Racing three-quarters and its kickers. On an individual basis, fly-half Jonathan Sexton, with his 114 kicks in play, is the Racingman who uses the most this technical skill. Alongside him, we found scrum-half Maxime Machenaud and full-back Benjamin Lapeyre also goes for the kicking choice, counting respectively 71 and 53 kicks in play each.
On the other side, Toulon which counts 373 kicks in play, are averaging 22 kicks per match. Toulon’s n°10, Johnny Wilkinson is the player who attempted the most kicks in play, with 108 made.
