Brisbane are shaping up once again as the team to beat in the 2021 Telstra Women's Premiership following an unbeaten start to the year.

Kelvin Wright's side were simply too good for the Dragons last Sunday, building on from their impressive win against the Roosters in Round 1, with the latest Telstra Tracker data highlighting the difference in the Broncos' high-speed intensity.

Of all players who featured in Round 2, Brisbane players topped the charts in a number of key areas — most notably in their high speed and sprint speed distance.

Winger Shenae Ciesiolka, who scored a try in the win over St. George-Illawarra, led the way for Brisbane — finishing top for maximum velocity with a 31.7 km/h high speed, while also finishing inside the top two for high and very high speed distance.

Tracking distance spent at a speed above 17.5 and 21 kilometres per hour respectively, Brisbane's players showed their difference over the rest of the competition with Ciesiolka, Emily Bass and Tamika Upton finishing in the top three. 

Only Lauren Dam from the Titans was able to break up the Broncos supremacy in high speed, coming in third with 454 metres above 17.5 km/h.

Sara Sautia continued Brisbane's dominance in the weekly numbers, finishing top of the relative distance with an average of 92.5 metres per minute, while Lavinia Gould came in at third with an average of 91.6 metres per minute.
