As we bounce straight from the win over the Mariners into Sunday’s trip to Adelaide, the stats keep coming thick and fast.

We’ve collated the best of them and added in some extra trivia and historical context to make sure you’re fully briefed ahead of what promises to be a cracker at Coopers Stadium.
