Penrith prop James Fisher-Harris's monster 77-minute stint in his side's win over the Eels helped him to the top of the week's VB Hard Earned Index rankings in round 18.

With his team dominating possession, Fisher-Harris ran for a monster 249 metres and still managed to effect 44 tackles for an index score of 110.

He had two teammates in the Hard Earned team of the week with Nathan Cleary scoring 73 thanks to over 500 kick metres, 25 tackles, 128 run meters and a try assist and Dylan Edwards scoring 77 largely thanks to a mammoth 338 run metres.

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.

Last week's top scorer Cam McInnes was again inspirational in his team's loss to Canberra, scoring 106 thanks to 58 tackles, two try-saves and 111 run metres.

There were some fresh faces in the second row with youngsters Siosifa Talakai (90) and Bayley Sironen (83) each huge contributors in their teams' wins.

Tohu Harris moved to the top of the season leaderboard with an index score of 97 after being shifted to prop and playing all 80 minutes, with 41 tackles and 202 run metres.

The only other change in the top eight saw Bulldogs prop Aiden Tolman climb two spaces to sixth with a score of 104.
