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

7. Sunia Turuva

Another entry, another rookie. This time it is the best of them all, and the 2023 Rookie of the season, Penrith's Sunia Turuva.

When Talan May was ruled out of the season, you can be forgiven for thinking that Penrith may struggle to fill that spot. Safe to say, they did not.

Turuva was a monster out wide for the Premiers in 26 games. He scored 12 tries, broke 124 tackles, made 17 line breaks and was arguably in the top few defensive wingers this year.

His performances were such that he is now a rusted on piece of the Panthers puzzle. A magnificent season for the youngster.
