Stats are what the compiler wants them to be. Campbell definitely had one turnover against him after being pinged for holding the ball in the ruck. And perhaps you'd better have another look at Ikitau's completion rate. On the figures for tackles made and missed tackles, his completion rate is 75%, not 25%.
I wish we could all get away from stats. They are simply in the eye of the beholder. Our own personal judgement of a player's performance over the course of a game says a whoi,le lot more than a basket full of stats.
In the personal opinion of many here Campbell had a better than "solid" game. Personal opinion to the contrary at least in part was without substantiation. Stats do not tell the whole story but no they are not "simply in the eye of the beholder".
I wasn't intentionally misrepresenting Ikitau - I had him as an HM behind White otherwise would put him in the three for PotM.
Another result through digging into the stats - I am starting to notice Wright more. His D wasn't up to muster, not just on the Campbell miss but generally. OTOH his attack (and support play) was impressive.
