These are the numbers that matter.
While stats can't tell you everything, they do paint a very telling picture.
Tackles made by Chris Randall.
If you think that must be some kind of record, it’s because it is.
The debutant made more tackles than any other debut player has in the history of the NRL.
The No.9 was strong in every area, missing just two tackles and clocking 51 run metres, while providing excellent service from dummy-half.
While the result ended in a draw, there’s no doubt Randall will remember this one for the rest of his life.
Metres made by David Klemmer.
Klemmer was huge coming out of trouble for his side, and absolutely wasn’t alone.
The big man was joined by Daniel Saifiti in crossing the 200 metre barrier, while the entire outside backline made over 100 metres each.
In a game where the Knights big men needed to step up, the NSW origin duo did so in a monumental way.
Tries to Bradman Best.
While the winger didn’t have his best game, his two barnstorming tries were ultimately what got the Knights back in the game.
The intimidating centre turned the game on its head and provided crucial x-factor when his team needed him most in the second half.
He also ran for 186 metres and notched three tackle breaks in a crucial performance.
