MVP and Moegoe of the week

The All Out Rugby Player Ratings see Pieter-Steph du Toit and Rohan Janse van Rensburg fighting it out for MVP of the weekend, while the Moegoe cops a shaky 3.1 out of 10!

With ratings of 7.6 out of 10, Stormers lock Du Toit and Lions centre/wing Janse van Rensburg come up trumps as the players rated most valuable to their teams by Joe Rater.

The All Out Rugby player ratings allow fans to vent (or high five) a little on Sunday and Monday mornings by rating the SA players out of ten. Every user rating then contributes to the official All Out Rugby Player Ratings for the weekend.

For every up, there has to be a down, which sees our light-hearted “Moegoe of the Week” award going to the poor player who cops the worst rating of the weekend. This week Bulls tighthead prop Trevor Nyakane notches up a rating of 3.1 given the heat he took come scrum time against JC Janse van Rensburg.

At heart, Nyakane is a loosehead prop, but is being used as an experiment at tighthead prop by Bulls coach Nollis Marais. Perhaps it is the coach who should be copping the Moegoe award for that decision?

Speaking of which, just to prove Joe Rater’s knowledge of the game, it is in fact Marais, on a rating of 3.4, who notches up by far the lowest rating of all six SA coaches. That said, for Stormers head honcho Robbie Fleck to cop a rating of only 5.4 after that Newlands extravaganza shows how tough Mr Rater can be!

You can also have a little fun by comparing the various ratings using the drop down menu. Have a look at how the Kings fans rated the players in comparison with Lions fans, or perhaps compare the girls and boys ratings!

So we have had a look at all the ratings from Round 1 of Vodacom Super Rugby, and come up with both a MVP (Most Valuable Player) and Moegoe for each of the 6 SA sides, and then using those ratings, come up with the overall MVP and Moegoe of the week:

    Yes I guess the ratings don’t lie I also thought Rev Immelman had a below par game but I am glad it was not only my view :-)
