With the AFL season already a third of the way through, we’ve had a go at ranking the top 10 recruits who have impressed so far.


10. Nathan Wilson

After the highly rated rebound defender wanted a trade back to Western Australia, Fremantle were quick to jump to his services. Wilson has been one of the best rebounders and meters gained players in the AFL in the past couple of seasons and a trade for just a second round pick is starting to look like a steal for the rebuilding Dockers.

Wilson is averaging four inside 50’s a game (elite) as well as 4.9 rebound 50’s (above average) and 18.7 disposals.
