NRL 2011: Winning from behind in the regular season

I am interested in the ability to win in invasive team games.

This season I have looked at winning behaviours in association football, Australian rules football, rugby league and rugby union.

In this post I list those teams in this year’s 2011 NRL fixtures in Australia who were able to overcome a deficit within a game to win in the regular season (before the finals’ rounds).

In the table below the first named team (in bold) overcame a deficit to win. There was one draw that was not resolved in extra time.

This season the four largest deficits were overturned by the away team.
