Roosters winger Brett Morris.

He may be 34, but Roosters winger Brett Morris continues to show up the NRL's young stars.

Morris leads both the Dally M Medal (six votes) and try-scoring tallies after making history with back-to-back hat-tricks to start the year. He also clocked up the most high-speed metres in round two.

According to Telstra Tracker data, Morris ran for 813 high-speed metres (20km/h or more) in Sunday's 40-6 win against Wests Tigers.

Closest to Morris was Manly winger Reuben Garrick (745hsm) followed distantly by North Queensland's Hamiso Tabuai-Fidow (648), Cronulla's Will Kennedy (610) and Brisbane's Jamayne Isaako (603).

Raiders prop Ryan James produced a mammoth effort in averaging a round-high 104m per minute for the half-game he played.

James also stood out on the VB Hard Earned index, bringing plenty of grunt and a terrific work ethic to Ricky Stuart's pack.

Roosters utility Drew Hutchison matched James's performance with 104m/m in 52 minutes off the interchange against Wests Tigers.

Knights five-eighth Phoenix Crossland and Tricolours halfback Luke Keary (both 103) led the way for the 80-minute men.

In the speed department, no one could match Sea Eagles flyer Jason Saab's round-one maximum velocity of 37.5km/h, but Canberra centre Sebastian Kris (35.3) did enough to top the leaderboard.

Eels fullback Clint Gutherson (35.1km/h) and Rabbitohs hooker Damien Cook (34.9) also showed clean pairs of heels in wins over Melbourne and Manly respectively, while Bulldogs winger Nick Meaney (34.6) and Raiders back Bailey Simonsson (34.3) impressed.

Meanwhile, Garrick proved he's got endurance as well as elite wheels by racking up the most kilometres (9.5).

The tireless Gutherson (9.3km) again unsurprisingly featured in the top five ahead of Sea Eagles pivot Kieran Foran (9.2), Parramatta hooker Reed Mahoney (9.1) and Storm star Cameron Munster (9.1).
