1. Richmond v St Kilda: Part 1

The Richmond and St Kilda game produced so many Useless Stats that we had to break it into two segments. We will start with the winners St Kilda and their stats.

Nick Coffield became the first named sub to become subbed off in AFL History. Coffield was scheduled to be sitting on the bench but got the late call up on the field when Jack Billings hurt his knee in the warm-up and unfortunately for Coffield he did his hamstring in 3rd quarter to get subbed out and earn this rare first.

The Saints also became the 14th team to lose to the current wooden spooners and then beat the reigning premiers in successive rounds whilst their 126pt turnaround having been beaten by Richmond by 86pts earlier in the year raised a few questions our way but is far from the record.

This belongs to Adelaide who in 1992 lost to Geelong in Round 8 by 123 points and then defeated them by 91points in Round 23, an amazing 214 point differential.
