EDDIE Betts has still got it. Speed, that is.

The 33-year-old Blue, who is set to extend his career into a 17th season, reached a higher running speed than anyone else at the club this year, according to Telstra Tracker data.

Betts' 33.9km/h peak held off Carlton bookends Mitch McGovern and Liam Jones, but pales in comparison to the season's speed kings, Bradley Hill (36.6km/h) and Trent McKenzie (36.4km/h).

McKenzie is best known for his cannon of a left boot, but his speed must now be considered part of his remarkable resurgence in minor premier Port Adelaide's defence.

The 28-year-old's 15 games this year are almost as many as he played combined across the previous four (16).

There were few other surprises among the other club pacesetters, although West Coast speed demon Jack Petruccelle was surprisingly clocked at only 33.6km/h, the slowest for any leader.

Brisbane's Charlie Cameron, Bomber Adam Saad, Geelong's Gary Rohan, Giant Lachie 'Dash' Ash, Hawthorn's Jarman Impey and Bulldog Jason Johannisen were all predictable victors.

Rohan had the Cats' four fastest running speeds in 2020, while Will Hayward featured three times in the Swans' top five.

Out-of-contract Tiger Jack Graham's appeal – Carlton, Essendon and Adelaide are all varyingly keen to recruit him – was also further explained with his 34.2km/h effort.
