These are the stats that matter.

In Mitch Barnett's 50th NRL and Lachlan Fitzgibbon's return from suspension, the nib Newcastle Knights stormed home in a nail-biter over the Gold Coast.

It was a brave performance from the Knights.

Here's how Saturday's win went down by the numbers.

216

The number of metres Nathan Ross ran for.

Only 24 of those metres were from kick returns. It goes to show just how busy the winger was.

With 82 metres post-contact, Ross was the first to put his hand up for a tough carry out of yardage.

The winger made 42 dummy-half runs.

Danny Levi try-assists.

The crafty hooker pushed out 77 minutes and they were quality.


Growing in confidence, Levi has backed his vision which resulted in two tries courtesy of his slick passing.

He also topped the tackle count with 38.

50

The number of NRL game's Mitch Barnett has to his name.

That may be the magic number as the two tries he scored were crucial.


The backrower was tireless on Saturday night.

He ran for 158 metres, four tackle breaks and 35 tackles.

He only needed one as it was the match winner to Shaun Kenny-Dowall.

The No.6 was electric.

He made 11 tackle breaks.

Constantly poking away at the Titans defence, a run down the edge drew defenders in before he turned the ball back on the inside for Kenny-Dowall to slice over and secure the win.
