With the off-season comes the usual troupes.

Talk of expansion, the divisions talk, player movements and of course post-season rankings.

Today we're here to focus on the rankings. More specifically, the NRL winger rankings from 2023.

Please keep in mind that these rankings are based only on 2023. Both NRL and Origin performances will be taken into account. Not specifically who is the best winger outright.

Before we start, I'm going to take a moment to answer some of the usual questions to appear in the comments to any sort of rankings.

Do I even watch football? Yes, every game.

Are my eyes painted on? No. That would be funny though.

Who am I? Just a fan.

With that said, below are the top 10 NRL wingers based purely and totally on 2023:

Honourable mentions: Alex Johnston, Xavier Coates & Mikaele Ravalawa

9. Ronaldo Mulitalo

No one on this list was harder to rank the the enigmatic Sharks winger. Multialo had days where he was the best in the business, yet also had days where Sharks fans were pulling their hair out.

Ultimately Mulitalo was a constant threat, a try-scoring regular and on the days where he was played well, the Sharks were far more likely to win.

Across 23 games he crossed for 21 tries, made 33 line breaks, had five try assists, broke 76 tackles and ran for 136 metres per game.

Ronaldo is one of the game's genuine aerial threats and arguably the most passionate man in the Shire. I still maintain he can be the best winger in the game if he finds consistency.
