Reuben Garrick is closing in on NRL history with the Manly winger just 32 points away from becoming the first player to post 300 points in a regular season.
Garrick forced his way into the Sea Eagles' record books on Saturday night, with his 28-point haul against Parramatta taking his tally for the season to 268.
That figure surpasses the 257 scored by Matthew Ridge in 1995, making for the greatest points-scoring season in Manly's history.
But further records could still await.
Hazem El Masri holds the mark for the most points in a regular season in the game's history, with 294 in 2004 for Canterbury.
El Masri then played all four weeks of the finals to take his overall tally to 342.
Garrick has three games left to score the 27 points required to beat the regular season mark, while 32 would allow him to create his own one-man 300-club.
The 56-10 flogging of Parramatta also allowed Garrick to go well clear of Adam Reynolds, who has 230 points, at the top of this year's charts.
“Ridgey was also ultra-competitive. It's a great personal achievement for Reuben,” Manly coach Des Hasler said.
“It's fantastic. Reuben works really hard at his game. So it's very deserving.
“But he will be the first to say he is on a fair backline and no doubt there are a lot of boys working hard on the inside setting up those assists.”
Manly's backline could also post another record in coming weeks, given they are just one Tom Trbojevic try away from each of their back three scoring 20 for the season.
Garrick and Saab are both on 20 for the year to be equal-third in the overall race, while Trbojevic sits on 19 in just 13 games.
No team in history has had three players post 20 tries in a season before.
Meanwhile, the Sea Eagles need 48 points from their last three games of the regular season for this to be the most prolific in the club's history.
They have now passed 50 five times in this year alone, becoming just the third team in history to do so.
The recent form has brought back memories of the freestyling way Kieran Foran and Daly Cherry-Evans delivered the club's last premiership in 2011.
But Hasler said they were now a completely different pairing.
“I don't think it's anything at all like 2011,” Hasler said.
“They're just playing good footy, they are experienced and work well together.
“They just have to maintain it.”Internet Explorer Channel Network
