So, I’ve been a little busy for a couple of weeks and have let the Recruit of the Year slide a little.
Oh, I’ve still kept the tallies – I just haven’t put them all together in an article, because I am slack. So, I made a point of getting this done early this week, as I hate being viewed as a lazy person, even if I am.
Here at The Mongrel Punt, I’ve always liked keeping tabs on the recruits throughout the year. I find it is a great way to gauge who is contributing most on a consistent basis, as opposed to seeing someone play once and forming your opinion of them for the year based on that one game.
As such, every week we will be rating the performances of the players wearing new colours on a scale of 1-10 to discover who is playing the best footy most often. It’s The Mongrel’s Recruit of the Year, and it is as close as you are going to get in terms of having an overview of how those big off-season moves are playing out.
Let’s jump into the Top 15 recruits of the year thus far, how they impacted their teams and the structure, and what they could mean going forward.
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 could 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?
