Top Five Wingers

Who have been the best Wingers this season?

Three of the players in this top five wingers poll have made the play-offs, the other two, include a surprise package from the army and a Leeds Rhinos flyer. 

5. Josh Charnley

Josh Charnley has been flying for Warrington scoring 17 tries in 25 appearances, he’s made 3070 metres, an average of 122.8 metres per game.

4. Ash Handley

Ash Handley was one try behind Tommy Makinson for Super League’s top try-scorer, he scored 22 tries and made 3248 metres, it was a poor season for Leeds who managed to avoid relegation with one round remaining. 

3. Regan Grace

Regan Grace has been impressive again for St Helens this season, his pace and sharp feet have devastated the opposition defence. He’s scored 20 tries, and made 2646 metres, in a year that could see him reach the Challenge Cup Final and Grand Final. 

2. Ratu Naulago

Ratu Naulago is the find of the season, Lee Radford took a chance to sign him and the Fijian winger has repaid Radford with 13 tries, and countless breaks leaving the opposition in his rear-view.

1. Tommy Makinson

Tommy Makinson finished the season as Super League’s top try-scorer scoring 23 tries in 25 games, he was also the top metre maker making 3803 metres. Makinson made the 2019 Super League Dream Team adding to a collection of individual awards for 2019.
