Super Rugby 2013 kicked off in Australia over the weekend and the stats tell us that it was a drab start.

Jan Taljaard has again sent us his time for ball in play and both matches were well below average.

The two matches were Rebels vs Force in Melbourne and Brumbies vs Reds in Canberra.

In addition we have included the ball-in-play time for Monday's two Varsity Cup matches and  one Community Cup match.

Rebels vs Western Force (Gardner): 15 minutes 25 seconds + 15 minutes 31  seconds = 30 minutes 56 seconds
Brumbies vs Reds (Lees): 13 minutes 34 seconds + 17 minutes 53 seconds  = 31 minutes 27 seconds
Average: 31 minutes 12 seconds

Varsity Cup

Shimlas vs Tukkies (Tiaan Jonker):
14 minutes 32 seconds + 16 minutes 3 seconds = 30 minutes 35 seconds
