Top 10 Wingers Heading into 2019

NRL wingers are getting bigger, faster and more exciting to watch every year.

And in 2016 they’re set to get even better, with an amazing batch of wing stars set to benefit from tired forwards and the reduced interchage.

10 Jordan Rapana (Raiders)

Rapana will pop up all over the field and is a nightmare to defend against. With his step and off-loading ability, he crossed the line for 10 tries last year. He slides down rankings to 10th due to a shoulder injury suffered on international duty with the Kiwis. Rapana is expected to return between round 11 and round 14 of the 2019 Telstra Premiership season, but he is too good not to be mentioned in the top 10 wingers of the game, even with his delayed start.

9 Shaun Kenny-Dowall (Knights)

SKD has proven himself to be one of the best outside backs in the competition with his size, speed and work-rate. The now veteran Knights tough runs out of trouble has become a vital part of his game.

8 David Fusitu’a (Warriors)

Lead the competition in tries in 2018, the real test will now be can he back it up. If he does then he will break into the top 5 wingers in the game in no time. Things maybe tough with out Shaun Johnson feeding him.

7 Anthony Don (Titans)

Don is good. The Titans winger had a solid 2018 scoring 15 tries, he is starting to build the consistency required of him at this level.

6 Corey Oates (Broncos)

He’s emerged as one of the star wingers in the game and one of the most consistent players in the Broncos. Oates scored another 18 tries in 2018 and we expect a similar output in 2019.

Opposition players haven’t been as intimidated by a Brisbane winger since Wendell Sailor or Michael Hancock.
