Average points scored makes grim viewing for Wigan and Castleford

It’s been a rollercoaster season for some Super League sides in 2021.

Leigh Centurions were relegated with just two wins all year, whilst Catalans Dragons finished top of the table in the regular season for the first time in their history.

For some sides, though, the table only tells half the story.

Two teams have come under a lot of fire in 2021 for their lacklustre attack and inability to score points: Wigan and Castleford.

And, the average match points scored explains just why.

Wigan, despite finishing fourth and managing to qualify for a home play-off, registered a mere 15.5 points per game – that is less than relegated Leigh and less than second-bottom Salford Red Devils.

For Castleford, the picture isn’t that much better with an average score of 19 – remember this was the same coached side as the one that set the record for the number of points scored in a Super League season back in 2017.

Both sides will go into the 2022 season under the reign of a different head coach and it looks as though the change in personnel has come at just the right time.
