Brisbane winger Xavier Coates.

Xavier Coates signed off as a Bronco with an elite Telstra Tracker performance while a pair of rookie fullbacks posted big numbers to close out the regular season.

Coates produced the most high-speed metres (20km/h or more) with 827m as young Dragons No.1 Tyrell Sloan led the way for total distance (9.7km) ahead of Titans teen Jayden Campbell (9.46km).

Sloan has shown enough in his five NRL appearances, in which he scored six tries, to suggest he's got a tremendous career ahead of him.

Campbell, meanwhile, will continue his impressive entrance to the top level with a maiden finals game against the Roosters on Saturday.

Elsewhere, Sea Eagles winger Jason Saab tuned up for the playoffs by posting the top speed of the round for the second week in a row.

After being recorded at 37.4km/h against the Bulldogs in round 24, Saab maxed out at 37.1km/h during a win over the Cowboys.

With Manly facing Melbourne to kick off the finals on Friday, perhaps the added intensity could spur on Saab to eclipse his season-best speed of 38km/h, which he achieved in round five.

Daniel Atkinson made his NRL debut for the Storm in their minor premiership-clinching victory against the Sharks, and while he only played seven minutes, the 20-year-old kept up the pace.

The pivot averaged 105.6 metres per minute - edging out Sloan, who averaged 102.2m/m as he bagged a double in a loss to the Rabbitohs.
