It was a big night for a lot of his team mates as well:
Josh Gibson passed David O’Halloran
Liam Shiels passed Gary Buckenara and equalled Ian Paton
Ben Stratton passed Stephen Lawrence
Paul Puopolo passed Richard Vandenburg & Anthony Condon and equalled Stephen Lawrence
Jack Gunston passed Wally Culpitt and Rick Ladson.
Amongst the goal kickers, Paul Puopolo’s 2 goals took him past Tony Hall, Jordan Lewis and Jim Bohan.
For Adelaide, Josh Jenkins passed the 200 goal milestone, Charlie Cameron equalled Mark Bickley and Andy Otten passed David Pittman and equalled Mitch McGovern.
In tonight’s game, the old ‘stagers’ of both clubs (Jarrad McVeigh and Brent Stanton will be missing, but Sydney will still have the other 6 Top 100 game players on the field, and Essendon will have 3. Cale Hooker will also be missing.
