The Squad Depth scores are averages that are based upon the top two players' ruck scores, top four backmen's scores, top five midfield scores and top four forwards' scores. It takes into account all the Rounds played so far. It is designed to show how 'deep' is each team's talent pool. If they lost one or two good players, are they cannon-fodder for the rest of the year?
To generate a total squad depth score that reflects the scores obtained by teams week-to-week in the HomeNaway, the two ruck scores are averaged to one, the four backs averaged to two, the five midfielders averaged to three, and the four forwards averaged to two.

2019: Round 03 - Squad Strength
1 week 3 days ago #2
I love all the extra stats that you give us Merc but just thinking about it the Ruck strength stat can be a bit skewed.
I have 2 recognised ruckmen and this week Preuss comes in to play alongside his teammate Gawn.
I'd actually prefer him not to play and just have him sitting on the bench doing nothing to help my squad strength score but not restricting my main ruckman's actual score.
Top work though especially when I see the Buccaneers at the top.
