All-time single match stats record-holders

Lance Franklin's 18 shots at goal are the most in a single match (1999-2017) - AFL,Stats
Lance Franklin's 18 shots at goal are the most in a single match (1999-2017)

ONLY four all-time single match records remain from Champion Data's first season as the AFL's official statistician in 1999.

Kangaroo Adam Simpson (inside 50s), Port Adelaide's Josh Francou (uncontested gather), Saint Stewart Loewe (ball-up clearance) and Brisbane Lion Brad Boyd (knock ons) are the exclusive quartet.

There is an asterisk on Loewe's record, with Power recruit Tom Rockliff matching – without breaking – his nine ball-up clearances in round eight this year against Hawthorn.

Champion Data has added more statistical categories across the years, with 'marks fumbled' the newest from last year.
