**Premiership Standard**

A few months ago I wrote-up an absolutely amazing piece where I broke down the 6 Premiership winning teams and divised the WXV Premiership Standard. Now it's time for us to check which of the 2018 squads match-up to the Premiership Standard. For reference:

http://forum.fanfooty.com.au/index.php/topic,110261.msg1897552.html#msg1897552All of these stats are based of 2017 and a special thanks to Adamant, cause I just copied his stats. Probably cause I am no good at computars and wouldnâ€™t be able to find them myself.

**VERY IMPORTANT!!!!:**

Assuming all players stay the same OR improve here is what needs to happen for each team in order for them to reach Premiership standard.Green = The player meets the premiership standrad

Red = The player does not meet the standard

Light Blue = The player reaches the elite premiership standard.
