Numbers: Where it all went wrong on the GC

These are the numbers that matter.

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

Here's what they told us following the Round 20 loss to the Titans.


Not good enough in a big game.

The Knights failed to complete eight sets tonight, which is nowhere near good enough in a game we had to win to book a home final.

While it was wet, the Titans managed to complete at 82% while playing an expansive brand of football.


Line breaks for the Gold Coast Titans.

Our defence tonight was nowhere near good enough, with the Titans breaking our line far too often.

The Titans also managed 13 less missed tackles (36 to 23), near 700 (2054 to 1361) more run metres and 108 more (606 to 498) post contact metres.

With the attack-minded Rabbitohs our opposition next week, the boys will need to fix our defensive fragilities.


Penalties given away by the Knights.

Add in four ruck infringements, and the Knights were always going to be on the back foot.

For comparison, the Titans gave away just two penalties and one set restart in a disciplined display.


Run metres to Bradman Best.

In his return from an ankle injury, Best made a solid 164 metres and 65 post-contact.

The centre also made a line break, tackle break and 13 tackles.

Watch: Lee juggles and regathers for points


Tackles by Kurt Mann.

The hooker topped the tackle count for the Knights.
