Stat Attack: Speed and stamina behind Turbo's hot form

If his sublime performances weren't enough, this stat shows that Tom Trbojevic's hamstrings are in fine fettle.

Manly's superstar fullback recorded more high-speed metres (20km/h or more) than anyone else in round nine with 728.

The 23-year-old carved up the Warriors in his 100th game last week with four try assists and two tries, showcasing serious pace.

Trbojevic hasn't held back since returning from the hamstring issue that sidelined him for five weeks. Per Telstra Tracker data, he also recorded 721 high-speed metres in round six and 764 in round eight.

His effort on Mother's Day propelled him into the top-five on the weekly high-speed metres leaderboard for the third time in 2021.

Sea Eagles teammate Reuben Garrick finished behind Trbojevic with 666 high-speed metres with Nick Meaney closely trailing him.

Manly have been dominant on the Telstra Tracker this year and winger Jason Saab has again posted the top speed with 37.1km/h.

While enough to give opponents windburn, that mark is below his season-best of 38km/h. And Storm flyer Josh Addo-Carr maintains the title as the NRL's fastest man having clocked 38.1km/h in round four.

Rabbitohs veteran Dane Gagai and Broncos centre Herbie Farnworth (both 35.7km/h) were the closest to catching Saab last round.

Trbojevic's top speed against the Warriors was 32.4km/h.

Elsewhere, Panthers halfback Nathan Cleary, as he so often does, finished atop the total distance category with 9.68km.

Titans playmaker Tanah Boyd produced a similarly big effort (9.59km) while Trbojevic proved that his stamina matches his explosiveness by covering 9.51km to rank third overall and first among fullbacks.

Eels pair Haze Dunster and Keegan Hipgrave maximised their four- and 14-minute stints off the bench against the Roosters to finish atop the relative distance (metres-per-minute) category.

Cleary (103mpm) and Knights playmaker Phoenix Crossland (102mpm) were the highest-ranking 80-minute players.
