The quick Blue Foxx jumps over another pacy Origin record

Hard to believe but the NRL's fastest man, Josh Addo-Carr, is getting even faster in State of Origin.

Addo-became the first State of Origin player in Telstra Tracker history to clock 37km/h following a blistering performance in NSW's 34-10 win over Queensland on Wednesday night.

It's slightly off his all-time record of 38.5km/h recorded for the Storm in 2018 but Addo-Carr required just seven days to eclipse his own Origin record of 36.7km/h which he delivered during the loss to Queensland at Adelaide Oval.

Cleary's man-of-the-match performance by the numbers

NSW used "the Foxx" at will in their comprehensive win with the flyer and halfback Nathan Cleary combining with long-range kicks to punish Queensland winger Phil Sami all evening.

Sami finished second-best behind Addo-Carr in the pace race with 33.7km/h, recorded after a sprint between the pair to the ball.

More stoppages in play in Origin II led to numbers across Telstra Tracker dropping on last week's series opener but several players continued to deliver big performances.

Cleary (33.1km/h), Daniel Tupou (32.6kn/h) and Clint Gutherson (32.4km/h) rounded out the top five on a dominating night for NSW ahead of next week's decider at Suncorp Stadium.

Gutherson topped the high-speed efforts (efforts over 20km/h) with 35 for the match as the centres dug in for their teammates with centre partner Jack Wighton and Maroons nemesis Dane Gagai each finishing on 32.

Wingers Addo-Carr (28) and Xavier Coates (26) forced their way into the top five in overall results that produced lower numbers to Origin I.

What didn't change was Nathan Cleary's dominance from an intensity and yardage perspective.

While the game two man-of-the-match didn't register as many metres across the 80 minutes given the Blues' performance on Wednesday night, Cleary's 7.7 kilometres covered topped the charts for a second Origin game in a row.

He was joined by Gutherson (7.4km) and Damien Cook (7.1km) in the top three, while Maroons pair Daly Cherry-Evans and Valentine Holmes, returning from injury, both record 6.9 kilometres in the loss.

Cleary's 125 metres recorded per minute was also the best intensity rate for the match with Gutherson maintaining a 120m/min result in line with his Origin I performance.

Veteran hooker Jake Friend also produced 120 metres per minute in the defeat with opposite number Cook (118m/min) and Jake Trbojevic close behind.
