We take a look at some of the key stats from the North Queensland Toyota Cowboys 35-4 win over the Parramatta Eels in Darwin on Saturday night.
The number of tries scored by winger Kyle Feldt, his fourth hattrick in his 162 game NRL career. The 30-year-old also had 18 runs for 168 metres, to go along with four tackle breaks and two line breaks.
The number of times the Cowboys have kept their opponents to just one try through the opening eight rounds. North Queensland currently boasts the second-best defensive record in the competition at just 12.1 points per game, behind only the Penrith Panthers (11 ppg). The team has also conceded only eight points in their last 227 minutes of football.
The game-high number of tackles Reuben Cotter made. It is the fifth time in the 24-year-old’s 28 game career that he has cracked the half century. The Sarina Crocs junior also ran for 137 metres, including 66 post-contact metres, in 80 minutes on the park.
The percentage of the Cowboys completion rate. Despite the conditions in Darwin, the Cowboys completed 33/37 sets, their third game with a completion percentage at 89% or above in 2022, two more than the previous four seasons combined.
The percentage of Reece Robson’s tackle efficiency, making 48 tackles with missing one in 80 minutes. Over the last four weeks, the 23-year-old has made 148 tackles with only three misses (98%).
The number of metres Chad Townsend kicked for, the second most he has kicked for in a match in his 200 game career, second only to his 674 metres performance against the St George Illawarra Dragons in Round 11 last year. The co-captain also ran for 81 metres, set up a try and made 20 tackles.
