If I was taking a still active player for their entire career? Hawkins. Did it largely unsupported for huge stretches, and on every KPD around.

If I was taking one just for 2023? McKay. At his peak right now, pretty much undefendable 1-on-1.

Lol. The Dustin Martin thread had over 3,000 posts and had good discussion.
Lynch and Gawn lead the contested marks stats last year so what's your problemo?
Maybe because no Collingwood player is in the top ten?
I think the stat of average contested marks per game, may not give you the full picture. If there was a stat which showed the % of contested marks won, that may be a little more accurate.

But, in the eye test, I think Lynch and Naughton are the 2 best.

Lynch looked great throughout 23.

Naughton when ON, his ramrodding packs and breaking them open is a sight to see.

For smaller blokes 6 4 and under, how about Tobey the Terror?
