In a disappointing season for Port Adelaide, Gray has managed to continue the 2014 form that earned him an All-Australian selection, as well as recognition as the AFL Coaches’ Association Champion Player of the Year.
Last year’s club best-and-fairest winner is enjoying more midfield time in 2015, leading the club for average disposals while still booting more than a goal per game.
The 27-year-old’s brilliance was showcased in round 11 against Geelong, when he gathered 27 disposals, 16 contested, and kicked two goals.
The dual All-Australian was once again among the competition’s elite in 2015, leading the Power in disposals and averaging five tackles per game.
His consistency set him apart from his opponents, registering less than 19 disposals on only one occasion this season.
The skipper’s best game was in round 16 against cross-town rival Adelaide when he had 32 disposals, laid seven tackles and kicked two goals.
The Power livewire has returned to the 2013 form which saw him claim the Port Adelaide best and fairest and an All Australian selection.
Wingard surpassed the 50-goal mark for the first time in his short career, but of most significance has been the consistency in his game, kicking three or more majors on ten occasions.
The 22-year-old was clinical in Port Adelaide’s round 11 loss to the Cats, gathering 27 disposals and booting four goals.
