World Rugby provides data on each game palyed at RWC2019 (link). I am using these data to keep a record of the tournament ona Google Sheet (link).
I have used the data to help me explore R and to look carefully at colour blind palettes (link).
My record of the twenty-games played so far include these ggplots:
I used the geom_smooth () option to look at penalties and free kicks conceded. This example uses the glm method. I used it as an example of a generalised linear model with a small number of data points (link).
I had a look at the number of lineouts and scrums in a game. I used the size function in this visualisation
I looked at kicks and passes too in order to think about the flow of a game. So far the total passes in a game have ranged from 205 to 367.
My median data for the twenty-games are:
- 16 penalties and free kicks conceded.
- 60 kicks.
- 260 passes.
- 14 scrums
- 25 lineouts
