Purity score: One reason the Canberra Raiders have developed some winning ways

Why do the St George Illawarra Dragons consistently underperform, despite the array of big name recruits such as Corey Norman, Ben Hunt and James Graham in their line-up? Simple. No team purity.

Comparing the total number of club appearances to total NRL appearances, gives an indication of the purity of a team’s roster. The higher a roster’s purity, the longer that squad has played together, forming those connections and combinations so crucial to building a team. Not a list, but a team.

2. Canberra Raiders
Total Club Appearances: 1509 | Total NRL Appearances: 1830 | Team Purity Score: 82.5%

Interesting theory, seems supported to an extent by the numbers.

It is absolutely appalling that the Warriors and Knights are the bottom two teams on that list...and yet it doesn't surprise me in the slightest.

You'd think the Gold Coast and inner Sydney teams would have quite low scores as players move around so readily.

This isn’t new stuff. The team Purity score was first mooted in the Bundesliga in 1939.

I’ll see myself out......

Im not surprised with Newcastle. Brown basically burnt it all down, salted the ashes and started fresh. So it makes sense they would be down there in terms of games played together.

It really rams home the fact that in order to be successful, you need to invest in a core group of youngsters, and try to bring them up through the ranks together.

I think West Coast Eagles have had some sort of purity score as well since the mid 90's

How does this explain the Broncos?
Gina Riley: Oh, come on, John. That’s a bit old hat, the corrupt IOC delegate.
John Clarke: Old hat? Gina, in the scientific world when they see that something is happening again and again and again, repeatedly, they don’t call it old hat. They call it a pattern.

I'm not surprised about the current Knights squad, just that, of all the places, the team from Newcastle is full of ring-ins. It'd be like having Penrith full of imports. No wonder they are struggling. No identity.

The Warriors situation is a disgrace.

Warriors are shocking. I’ve never understood why they are consistently poor, given the potential playing pool of NZ at their disposal.

I've been watching a lot of our games from last year.

And what stands out for me was that epic win at Shark Park 15-14.

Sezer kicked 3 field goals..that was super exciting that day..

It was that day that made me think..yep..we are shaking this comp !!!!
