Stat Attack: Eels scoreless in second halves

After just three rounds of the Telstra Premiership, there has already emerged a strong trend of some teams fading out badly in the second halves of their games, while others are coming home with a wet sail (or heaping on the pain).

It will come as little surprise, but Stats data reveals the last-placed Parramatta Eels are the worst second-half team of 2018 - incredibly they have failed to score a single second-half point in their three matches.

The Sharks are next worst with 10 scored, although their defence has been significantly better.

Parramatta are the second-worst defensive team in second halves as well, with 44 conceded; only Canberra (48 conceded) are worse but with 24 scored of their own their -24 second-half differential is well ahead of the Eels' -44.

At the other end of the scale, the St George Illawarra Dragons have a +56 second-half differential after racking up a monstrous 68 second-half points in three games with just 12 conceded.

The Penrith Panthers have the second-best, at +42 – amazingly, they are yet to concede a single second-half point.
