    "Stats are like mini skirts, what they show is great, but what they hide is vital" - N.S Sidhu

    That is 1 of my favourite sayings, and it can't be shown any better than today

    We had a bloke on our side, who made 20 tackles, and took 3 runs for 25m. Pretty average game right ?

    Not at all, that man was 1 of our best, Glenn Stewart. He had a big big game but it doesn't show up at all

    T-Rex's stats would have look impressive if he'd turned up for the second half.

    Yes, he seemed to go quiet after the half time break. I don't know if it was because he got put on report for that supposed trip or not and didn't want to risk things any more by showing any aggression but who knows.

    Glenn's stats also show - 0 errors, 5 all up runs, 1 offload, 3 tackle breaks, 2 line break assists, 1 try and only 1 missed tackle.

    All the stats together reflect what we all know, he had a great game!

    I think a few of the boys went a bit quiet in the second half... as soon as the sun went down they got a bit flat!

    And that probably backs up my point more, if T Rex has a 5 run game, he would be called lazy etc

    Actually it disproves your point. What it means is that you need to read and interpret ALL the stats before making judgment on a players performance. I think the point of your thread was to diminish the importance of stats, hence the title. At a glance, Glenn's stats don't look that impressive. Dig into the stats a little deeper and the true story comes to light.
