With the 2023 AFL season about to get underway, a possible 35 players will be running out in new colours after a busy 2022 trade period.

Let's have a look at some of the big name recruits who will be looking for strong seasons at their new clubs this year...

2. Josh Dunkley

After a failed trade request to Essendon at the end of 2020, Josh Dunkley has now found a new home at the Brisbane Lions after departing the Western Bulldogs at the end of last season.

Dunkley won the Bulldogs' best and fairest last year to cap off a strong season, after averaging 25 disposals and six tackles a game.

Dunkley produced a strong best-on-ground performance against Richmond in Round 4 last year, producing 37 disposals and 11 marks in a 38-point loss.

A 2016 premiership player for the Bulldogs, Dunkley was the youngest in the side at just age 19. He recorded 15 possessions and seven tackles, however, was most influential in the semi-final win over Hawthorn, where he amassed 23 disposals and kicked a goal.

Dunkley looked dangerous at Brisbane's intraclub, kicking three goals, and will be set for a big season.
