As the 2022 season approaches, we take a look at the best performing forwards throughout the 2021 season to try and gauge which of these attackers sits on top of the rankings going into the new season.

Here is our top 10 list of the best forwards in the league for this upcoming season.


9. Joe Daniher

The injury-stricken Daniher finally got up and running in 2021, having missed a few games in years gone by. Standing tall at 201cm, Daniher moves incredibly well for a player of his size and can play almost as a rover at times, allowing him to score some dynamic and eye-catching goals.

Daniher was the only player in the 2021 season to score a goal in every round of the season, booting 46 goals for the year.

His slightly underwhelming average of 1.9 goals a game doesn’t tell the full story, as he remains one of the league’s most impactful and deadly forwards when fully fit.
