It looks as though we have a battle between four as we approach the halfway point of the season, with yet another lead change seeing one of the better recruits in recent seasons leap to the top of the table once again.

This is the closest of the Wingman of the Year races we’ve had to date, with established stars playing a weekly game of “can you top this?” as they surge to the front.

A few years ago, a little sick of the wingmen being completely ignored in the roles they play by those selecting the AFL All-Australian Team, here at The Mongrel Punt, we decided to start tracking the best wingers in the game. Using a combination of stats and votes as our metric for assessing them over the course of the year, The Mongrel Punt Wingman of the Year Award was born.

2020 saw Sam Menegola blitz the field, running away to easily claim the title of the best wingman in the game.

Fast forward to 2021 and it was a bit closer, with Paul Seedsman pipping Hugh McCluggage and Karl Amon in the race to become the league’s reigning wingman of the year. The Crows are currently missing Seedsman immensely, as his 2021 was easily the best of his career.

Let’s jump into the Round Ten results and the overall leaderboard.
