New Zealand doesn't rate well. Perhaps this is because of their philosophy of attacking and try scoring, while NH teams rely more on scoring through penalty kicks so they place more emphasis on kicking for goal.

Safe to say 10-man rugby produces better kickers.

If you look at this table of highest average team tries in a calendar year there is one solitary entry by a 6N team, England in 2001.

Grant Fox and Andrew Merhtens were superb kicker. Would you call any of their respective teams proponents if 10 man rugby? I wouldn't.

Can't tell without the stats. Tried to find their percentages but couldn't.

Some may kick poorly (Barrett), but none like twats.
