The offload has become an important attacking weapon in rugby these days. Offloads generally lead to unstructured defences which increases the probability of scoring a try.

Which team has the most offloads in Super Rugby 2018?
At the end of the regular season, it’s surprisingly the Sharks from Durban who top this metric. The number of tries they’ve scored, however doesn’t make for great reading.
