The Dragons may have slipped to a disappointing loss but it was for lack of effort from their inspirational skipper, with Cam McInnes topping the VB Hard Earned index.

McInnes pumped out 56 tackles and 203 metres plus a try-save in an 85-minute effort to top the scores for round 17.

Each player's VB Hard Earned index score is calculated by doubling their total runs and adding a point for every tackle, offload, decoy, support, charge down and tackle break.

Negative plays lower the index score. One point is taken off per missed tackle, while errors and penalties cost four points. Being sin-binned results in eight points being subtracted.

The Titans' tough win over the Bulldogs produced some big numbers with Moeaki Fotuaika, Mitch Rein, Anthony Don and Lachlan Lewis all earning a spot in the team of the week for their efforts on Saturday.

Second top score of the week came from returning Broncos prop Payne Haas who yet again played the full 80 minutes in the front row. His index score of 110 was built off a mammoth 61 tackles with 180 metres and five busts.

In the same game, Dylan Edwards produced a massive score for a backline player with 94, built off a massive 299 metres with five busts and a try assist.

There was little movement on the overall leaderboard, although Tohu Harris in second place had a big game to close the gap on leader Jake Trbojevic, while Isaah Yeo slipped two spots after sitting out the week after a head knock and Aiden Tolman moved up to eighth spot.
