All time top try scorer

Post by ABC Tiger » Mon May 14, 2012 2:52 pm

Just out of interest I wondered if anyone knows where to find a list of our all time top try scorers?

Doesn't have a full list, but it does list our top try scorer, Neil Back apparently? I am surprised, I knew he was prolific from the back of the rolling maul, but still!

I think this table may be a little out of date as it has Geordan down with most appearances at 192. I don't know what he's on now but hasn't Chutes just hit 200 starts?

Edit: Of course you can always check the Tigers website player's stats and see that Geordan still leads Chutes on appearances with 299 v 272
I am neither clever enough to understand nor stupid enough to play this game

No, this table is up to date as it only refers to Premiership appearances.

The Tigers website shows Geordan as having 179 starts & 13 subs in the Premiership (ie 192 total) up to and including this weekend's game.

Chuter has played in more Premiership games than Murphy in total but some of them were for Saracens.

Of course, not all matches are in the Premiership (slaps head). Thanks me2.

Percy Lawrie
then
Barry Evans

I think, I could look it up but I trust my memory, I remember Evans beating Bob Barker but he never got near Lawrie.

As has been stated above, your list only covers the Premiership.

Percy Lawrie does indeed still hold the record for the most tries in Tigers colours: 206 tries in all matches.
