Numbers: Try, try, try again... tackle busters

These are the numbers that matter.

While stats can't tell you everything, they do paint a very telling picture. 

These are the key numbers following our thrilling 38-12 win over the Roosters.

40

The number of tackles made by Mitch Barnett on Friday night, and the highest for the match.

The imposing forward had a blinder, he even snagged man of the match to his disbelief.

Team that up with two tackle breaks, 10 hit-ups and you've got yourself a cracker of a performance.

And to top it off why not step in for Kalyn Ponga when he went off to nail two conversions. A major thumbs up!

18

one try, four conversions and three penalty goals = 18

This points haul will keep Ponga firmly in the top five point scorers in the NRL, as he continues to wow us with his individual brilliance.

Add another five tackles breaks and a try assist and he's a definite game changer for the Knights.

2

The number of forced drop-outs from our captain Mitchell Pearce.

Five wins and five tries, he's on fire!!

one line break, five tackle breaks and one try assist, need we say more.

208

The Knights winger loves a run and this proves it with a impeccable 208 run metres.

Always tricky, he notched up seven tackle breaks and 59 post contact metres with the ball. 

And with all that hard work came another try. Applause please!

88%

A top notch percentage of completion rate.

It helped immensely throughout the match and trumped the Roosters 70%.

549

The number of kick metres the Knights managed in 80 minutes.

Most of that came from our captain who recorded 17 runs and 488 metres.

38

The glorious number of points scored to beat the Roosters!
