STAT ATTACK: Harlequins fullback Tyrone Green is one of the best players in the Premiership at the moment.

He helped Harlequins win the 2020/2021 Premiership title with his consistent performances and he has continued with that form into the 2021/2022 season.

According to Opta’s stats, the South African “gained exactly 2000 metres in Premiership Rugby in 2021, over 300 metres more than any other player”.

The 23-year-old “also beat the joint-most defenders” in the calendar year (92, level with Tom O’Flaherty).

The stats show how hard it is for opponents to contain Green with his power and pace out wide.

Looking at the 2021/2022 Premiership season before Round 12’s statistics are added, Green is currently way ahead of the pack with a whopping 1275 metres with ball in hand.

He is also currently placed third when it comes to defenders beaten (38).

The former Lions player also features in the top 10 when it comes to clean breaks (eight).

If he continues with his current form it will be hard for the Springbok coaching team to ignore him.
