How Irish rugby has fared in the past 5 years

23 May

The percentages are based upon the number of matches won by the three provinces in the Heineken Cup and Pro 12/Celtic League. Matches played by Munster in the Challenge Cup are not included and the yet to be played 2011-2012 Pro12 final featuring Leinster has not been taken into account also.

The percentages for the Irish team are based on all games played in the past five seasons, including World Cup and World Cup warm-up games. The yet to be played series in New Zealand has not been taken into account.

The percentages for Connacht include games played in the Pro12/Celtic League and in both the Challenge Cup and Heineken Cup.

As a point of information, games drawn are included in the analysis. As such, the winning percentage may not directly correspond to a loss percentage. For example, while the Irish national teams win percentage for this season is 43%, their draw with France in this years 6 Nations means their loss percentage is 50%, rather than 57%.
