International Rugby statistics

I wanted to test if there were a relationship between games played and winning percentage.

I tested teams that have played more than 150 games and those with between 80-150 games. I also looked at which parts of the world played the most rugby if that has a relationship on winning or average points difference.

There is not really concise evidence that games played has a positive impact on winning percentage. That might be because of quite a lot of factors such as: investment and training and strength of the opposition played. With regards to who plays the most rugby, Europe seems to be far ahead but in terms of points difference, The Southern Hemisphere has the overhand especially if one consider the SANZAR countries such as Australia, South Africa, New Zealand.
