Taking a penalty goal for first points

I have a theory proven by Parramatta last night but I can’t substantiate it. The team that scores first points in the game with a penalty goal goes on to lose the game. I have observed it many times but I don’t know if this is for real. Does anyone have stats to support my theory?

I’d say it would be closer to 50/50 in the history of Rugbeh League

I put it to Dave Middleton and he replied this year penalty goal has been first scoring play in 16 games. Team kicking first goal has won 7 and lost 9. I’ve gone back to see if he knows what it is historically. Stay tuned.

That’s pretty close to 50/50

Small sample size as it’s only this year…50/50 in the history of Rugbeh League

Mmm maybe starting to drift into the off season looking for answers to age old questions.

OK time to put it to bed. Dave Middleton says last 4 years team kicking penalty goal as first scoring play has won 60% of games. Fun fact sorted.
