Numbers: Watson wows, Lino strong in NRL return

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 win over Souths.

43

The number of tackles made by Connor Watson.

The little man was big in heart on Friday night.

He played 75 minutes and was tireless.

To cap it off, he only had one missed tackle for the night.

Huge!

116

The most run metres from a Knight and once again it was Connor Watson.

Not only did he run riot with his quick runs from dummy half but he was creative.

He made seven tackle breaks and scored a timely try out of dummy half.

Try assist from Mason Lino.

The playmaker was brilliant in his return to the NRL.

He also kicked four goal with his one and only miss hitting the post.

99

Run metres from Hymel Hunt.

Facing off against his former side, the centre was busy and secured the opening try of the match with a determined run.
