Cowboys trio set career-highs in win over the Storm

We take a look at some of the key stats to come out of the North Queensland Toyota Cowboys 25-point win over the Melbourne Storm on Sunday. 


The career-high number of try assists by centre Peta Hiku in the win over the Storm. The New Zealand International added 121 running metres, two line break assists and 16 tackles.


The career-high number of line break assists by Scott Drinkwater. The 26-year-old chipped in with a further 160 running metres, two try assists and six tackle breaks. 


The number of minutes Reuben Cotter played after backing up from playing 80 minutes on Wednesday night. The Game I Player of the Match had a team-high 51 post-contact metres on Sunday night, while also adding 127 running metres and 23 tackles with no misses.


The number of tackle breaks by the Cowboys on Sunday afternoon, the most the club has had in a game since they had 54 against the Cronulla Sharks in the finals last year. Valentine Holmes led the way with 8, while Scott Drinkwater, Semi Valemei and Tom Dearden all had three each.  


The percentage of Macca’s Man of the Match votes the club debutant Semi Valemei picked up on Sunday night. With a career-high three tries, three line breaks, six tackle breaks and 159 running metres, it’s no wonder why fans in the stadium voted for him!
