Eels five-eighth Dylan Brown.

Dylan Brown made up for lost time in his return from suspension by taking 16 runs in a VB Hard Earned effort.

The Eels pivot, who sat out the past three rounds, chalked up the most metres (195, per NRL Stats) in Sunday's 40-4 win over the Knights.

And with a score of 70 on the VB Hard Earned index, Brown was the best-performing back of the weekend. The 20-year-old more than doubled the average score for a five-eighth of 33.63.

According to data provided by VB, 12 of Brown's carries resulted in a gain of more than eight metres while he engaged the line seven times, busted three tackles and made 22 in defence with no misses.

Brown's Parramatta teammate Ryan Matterson (73) was another VB Hard Earned standout as he got through 30 tackles and 14 runs.

Dragons second-rower Jack Bird, meanwhile, posted 72 in his move to the forwards and showed his team-first ethos by recording five decoys and two support runs in a 52-24 victory over the Broncos.

But Wests Tigers lock Alex Twal (104) clocked up the top score of round 13 by some distance, with Shaun Lane, Blake Lawrie and Josh Kerr (all 75) the closest to the Lebanese international.

Twal's display helped the Tigers upset the depleted Panthers and catapulted him into third position on the overall leaderboard.

Penrith prop James Fisher-Harris remains in the top spot but Isaiah Papali'i, Twal and Panthers teammates Brian To'o and Isaah Yeo - who didn't play last week due to State of Origin - are still in the hunt.
