Stat Attack: Addo-Carr reclaims mantle as NRL's fastest

Josh Addo-Carr has bolted clear to reclaim his title as the NRL's fastest man having been clocked at 37.2km/h.

The Melbourne winger was trailing South Sydney's Alex Johnston and Brisbane's Xavier Coates, who both posted speeds of 36.9km/h in round six according Telstra Tracker data.

But with one match to go in the regular season - for which he's being rested - the "Foxx" has usurped the pair thanks to his effort in last Saturday's 50-22 victory against the Wests Tigers.

He showed his extreme pace by running 60 metres and beating three defenders to score in the first half, but it was on a kick chase where he tackled BJ Leilua late in the game that he hit top gear.

Addo-Carr's previous PB this season was 36.8km/h.

His overall top speed remains 38.5km/h - the fastest ever recorded in rugby league - which he registered against the Cowboys in May, 2019.

Broncos centre Kotoni Staggs (35.7km/h) ranked after Addo-Carr in round 19, followed by Dragons rookie Cody Ramsey (34.8), Storm flyer Suliasi Vunivalu (34.4) and Warriors centre Adam Keighran (34).

Another Melbourne player topped the high-speed efforts category - stand-in fullback Nicho Hynes.

Deputising for Ryan Papenhuyzen, who will return from an Achilles niggle against St George Illawarra on Sunday, Hynes had the most high-speed efforts (bursts of 20km/h or more) for consecutive weeks.

Following on from a total of 39, his 33 high-speed efforts were enough to see off Warriors winger Adam Pompey (32), Ramsey (31), Dragons gun Zac Lomax (30) and Rabbitohs centre Campbell Graham (30).

Newcastle halfback Mitchell Pearce covered the most distance (9.8km) after finishing second the week before with the same total.

His Knights teammate Kalyn Ponga, Warriors halfback Chanel Harris-Tavita and Ramsey, who featured in all three categories in just his second game, alll covered 9.5km.
