They might have been missing several players due to State of Origin commitments, but a strong team performance ensured North Queensland would continue their winning ways in Round 13.

Heading into an intriguing clash against the Titans without Valentine Holmes, Reuben Cotter and Jeremiah Nanai, Todd Payten's side moved into third spot on the Telstra Premiership ladder with a 32-6 victory that was highlighted by a number of key efforts in the Telstra Tracker data.

Of particular note was the intensity measured from Cowboys duo Jake Granville and Reece Robson, who finished first and second respectively for metres covered per minute (relative distance) across all players in the shortened round.

Robson's numbers were particularly eye-catching, with the hooker playing 73 minutes in the middle while chalking up a try, 116 metres and three tackle breaks as well as his customary 40 tackles — all while covering over 100 metres per minute.

Elsewhere, Kyle Flanagan topped the metres for the round as the Bulldogs went down to the Panthers while Jason Saab's runaway try in the final minutes of Manly's win saw him reach the round's maximum velocity with a top speed of 35.0 km/h.

Despite going down to the Sea Eagles in a disappointing effort, there were still plenty of Warriors players that featured highly in terms of high speed efforts — remarkably taking out five of the top six player totals for the round.

Outside backs Rocco Berry and Marcelo Montoya covered 765 and 648 metres respectively at speeds greater than 20 kilometres per hour, while Chanel Harris-Tavita (600m), Jack Murchie (596m) and Adam Pompey (596m) also produced a number of strong efforts in their side's heavy defeat.
