Leeming scoops CitySprint Rhinos Index award
Leeds Rhinos skipper Kruise Leeming was in sensational form last Friday as the Rhinos defeated Warrington Wolves 40-4 at the Halliwell Jones Stadium and his effort was recognised with the CitySprint Rhinos Index for the game.
The CitySprint Rhinos Index rewards the men who rack up the metres, make the tackles, support their team mates, create offloads and produce the tackle-breaks.
He played 70 minutes and ran for 184 metres from 31 carries overall in the game. He made 10 support runs and was joint top of the tackle count with 26.
Each week, the club’s analysts team will input the vital numbers with a special scoring system in place to determine which play tops the CitySprint Rhinos Index for that Round of Super League.
Leeming made 11 defensive efforts and four tackle breaks.
The Index not just all about the good stuff either, points are taken off for missed tackles or offloads conceded too.
The points are decided using the following system:
Carry = 1 point for each carry
Metres = 1 point per 10 metres made
Tackle break = 2 points per break
Offload = 2 points per offload
Supports = 0.5 point per support
Tackles = 2 points per tackle
Missed/offload conceded = -2 points for each one
Defensive effort = 0.5 points per effort
