With a few positional changes this season, we are seeing a couple of players starting to make a name for themselves on the wing in 2023.
Of course, the established blokes knew what they were doing from the outset – guys like Josh Daicos, Blake Acres, and Isaac Smith have been running this caper for years and don’t look like slowing down anytime soon, but a new crop of wingmen, both old blokes and new, are starting to carve out their own niche in the role.
And it is with an eye on those players that we update our Wingman of the Year Award.
Oh, what the hell? A Mongrel paywall? Yep, I own this site and believe my work is worth twenty cents per day. If you don’t, that’s fine. You can go about your business. However, if you would like to join us and access the members’ game reviews, as well as columns like the Wingman of the Year, Recruit of the Year, and other nonsensical stuff HB comes up with each week?
