Numbers: Saifiti bros lead the way

These are the numbers that matter.

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


Run metres to Daniel Saifiti.

We said last week he was in career best form. Somehow, the big man has stepped it up a gear.

Saifiti ran for well over 200 metres, scored a try, broke seven tackles and made a line break.

And he wasn't alone going forward.

Twin brother Jacob ran for 123 metres, made 23 tackles, and broke four of his own.

However, tonight belonged to Daniel.


Tackle breaks to Kalyn Ponga. 

Ponga was at his sizzling best against the Broncos, looking dangerous every time he touched the ball.

Ponga ran for 222 metres, busted six tackles, made a line break and clocked 149 valuable kick metres in a huge performance.

He was joined by the entire Knights backline (barring five-eighth Kurt Mann) in crossing the 100m barrier.

His organisation skills at the back also can't be faulted, with the sole try conceded from an intercept in the first half.


Kick metres to Mitchell Pearce.

Pearce's kicking game was instrumental in getting the Knights home.

In fact, the skipper had his finger prints all over this one, controlling the tempo of the game well as the Knights closed out the second half with ease.

Pearce scored a wonderful solo try, as well as clocking a line break, line break assist and a try assist in a great 80 minute performance.

He also ran for 146 metres, just for good measure.
