Most Wins Coached: After the win over Carlton in Round 18, Collingwood Coach Mick Malthouse is equal third for most wins in league history. The victory was the 358th for Malthouse, who began his coaching career with Footscray (now the Western Bulldogs) before taking the helm at West Coast. He is tied with Allan Jeans (St Kilda, Hawthorn and Richmond). First place is held by legendary Collingwood coach Jock McHale (467 wins from 714 games 1912-1949). Kevin Sheedy is second on the list (386 wins from 635 games with Essendon).

Most Consecutive Games: Sydney's Brett Kirk played game number 194 in Round 18, putting him equal fifth for most consecutive games in league history. He has not missed a game since Round 15, 2002 and ties with retired teammate Jared Crouch (194 games 2002-2006). Ahead of them are Jim Stynes (244 games for Melbourne 1987-98), Adem Yze (226 games for Melbourne 1997-2007), Adam Goodes (204 games for the Sydney Swans 1999-2007) and Jack Titus (202 games for Richmond 1933-43).
